From Lake County Central Committee Chairman Mark Shaw

The Lake County Republican Central Committee (LCRCC) will be actively working with Township Chairmen, Precinct Committeemen and candidates to provide support for local organizing efforts in preparation for the upcoming elections. It is our hope that the LCRCC will remain in a permanent leadership role in the structural, “grass-roots” organizing efforts that need to be established in Lake County in order for Republican candidates to be successful and their policies implemented.

We need your active participation to help keep Republican candidates involved in the many activities throughout Lake County. Please send us notification of any Republican Party or candidate events being held in your Lake County Township, City or Town, and we will post them to our website and Facebook page. Additionally, please send us photographs of your most recently held events and we will post them to our Facebook page.
