Lake County Republican Federation Pleased with Success of “A Celebration of Women Republican Leaders”

Last Friday, the Lake County Republican Federation celebrated over 50 past, current, and future women Republican leaders with a reception at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest.

The evening featured many women Republican political leaders, past and present, including former Comptroller (and current Deputy Governor) Leslie Munger, county board members Ann Maine and Carol Calabresa, state representative candidates such as Cindy Masover (58th Dist.) and Karen Feldman (59th Dist.), County Clerk Carla Wyckoff, Superintendent of Schools Roycealee Wood, numerous judges including Christy Bishop, and many others.  The evening began with the presentation of the Federation’s rare Lifetime Achievement Award to trailblazer Corinne Wood, who served as Illinois’ first female Lieutenant Governor.  The award was presented to her by current Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti, who happens to be the first Latino female lieutenant governor in the nation.  It was all capped off by a keynote presentation by our Republican candidate for Attorney General, Erika Harold, who is an African-American female.

“In a world where Republicans are stereotyped as being old, white, and male, we were proud to showcase our diversity and fabulous women leaders and trailblazers,” said Lake County Federation President Larry Falbe.  “Our guests of honor represent only a fraction of the leaders who have served the party in various capacities over the years.”

The goal of the event is to raise the funds necessary for a successful 2018 election campaign.  Proceeds will be used towards grassroots organizing efforts, upgrading technology, maintaining Lake County Republican Headquarters, and providing staff support for the Lake County GOP.

The Lake County Republican Federation has provided service to Republicans for over fifty years. To learn more about how you can contribute with your time, talent, or treasure, visit www.lcgop.org or call Erin Westphal at (847) 680-6680.
