Illinois Republican Party bylaws
Published bylaws of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee
To understand the Illinois Republican State Central Committee, we have to under stand how it works. We produced a story last week on the structure of the Illinois GOP. The organization is bound by rules. The bylaws created to govern its operations. The bylaws are voted on by the State Central Committee Members. Currently, there are 17 voting members representing the 17 Congressional districts in Illinois. (A sample of the organizational chart is displayed below)
We have obtained the bylaws for the Illinois Republican Party, and we want to share them with you. This is for transparency and educational reasons. It's better to understand the party by how it works, starting with the rules for which they are bound.
We will continue to educate the rank and files, Republicans and grassroots, so that we may rebuild this party. It's starts by understanding on how it operates from within. Many are displeased with the party after the devastating midterm losses. On December 10th over 200 grassroots Republicans appeared at the Central Committee meeting in Bolingbrook. Many wanted the Chairman Don Tracy to resign. He did not, and the other members supported him by continuing letting him keep his job as the chairman.
We cannot force the Party to make the changes we want because that's the decision they wanted to play. However, it is up to us to apply pressure to the party to hear our voices, and they need to start taking action to rebuild the party and to begin winning races. It's starts with communication. Soon this party itself will become strong again. Something needs to be broken to fix it. It's time to fix the party to its greatness that it's had years before.
Below are the bylaws of the Illinois Republican Party. You are welcome to share.
