It is with a very heavy heart that we inform of the passing of Tazewell County Republican Lowell Schroeder. Lowell was active in the party for many years and was the Tazewell County Republican Chairman from 2008 - 2014. He was a friend to many and had a great impact on this county working to make it a better place for all of us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Lowell's family. He will be greatly missed.

View Lowell Schroeder's obituary, send flowers and find service dates, and sign the guestbook.

I have had the privilege of getting to know both Justice Holder White and Justice Lannerd as well as Justice Doherty. They are dedicated to equal justice, to the Constitution and all have a work ethic which is beyond reproach. Please remember their names and feel confident when you cast a vote for each of them.

One year ago today, I was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Lisa Holder White as a judge on the 4th Judicial District Appellate Court. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve. I am grateful to Supreme Court Justice Lisa Holder White and her colleagues on the Supreme Court for this assignment. In 2024, I hope the voters will allow me the opportunity to continue to serve the citizens of the district.

The Gettysburg Address was given by Abraham Lincoln 160 years ago today.

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

"Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

"But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Petition Signing Saturday
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 11th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, the Tazewell Co. GOP Headquarters will be open for those who have not had the opportunity to sign candidate petitions. This is an important part of our election process because before anyone can get on the ballot to earn votes, they must first get signatures on their petitions from their constituents to get on the ballot. Without the required signatures, these candidates cannot and will not get on the ballot! We have an excellent class of candidates going in to the 2024 Primary Election. If you are not happy with the current state of Illinois, then show up and spend ten minutes to sign a few petitions. The candidates need you. Please help them and stop by tomorrow. Donuts will be available while they last and you will be doing a lot to help make our state and our county a better place for all of us.

What: Petition Signing Saturday
When: Saturday, Nov 11 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Tazewell County GOP Headquarters, 127 S. Sampson St., Tremont.

Tonight is the last of three Meet the Candidate/Petition Signing events. Turnout at the first two has been poor at best. I hear all kinds of excuses as to why people cannot stop in for ten minutes and support these candidates but the bottom line is either people don't care anymore or you are all happy with the things the Dems are doing in this state. I understand we are all busy and have much to do but when is this going to be a front burner issue for everyone? If you are happy, then quit complaining about the current state Illinois is in. We have some of the best candidates at all levels that I have ever seen but they cannot even get on the ballot unless you turn out and help them by signing their petitions. Take a few minutes and stop by Kep's Bar & Grill in Washington and help these people get on the ballot. They have committed themselves to get in the battle to help all of us. See the flyer below for more information.

TAZEWELL CO GOP MEET & GREET/PETITION SIGNING EVENTS

Most of you know the importance of getting good people to run for elected office. The condition of our state is such that Republicans do not have a voice in Springfield. We also have fought very hard to make Tazewell County ‘RED’ at the county level. It is critical that we find and elect people to serve at all levels who will advance conservative principles from the Tazewell County Board and the elected offices of the county to the state legislature and judicial benches. They need YOUR support and you can show that support by stopping by the scheduled event (LISTED BELOW) in your county board district to meet the candidates who are running for office and sign their petition to get on the ballot. Note, signing a petition for a candidate who is running for an office that represents you is simply supporting their effort to appear on the ballot for that particular political contest. It is not a vote for them for that elected seat.

Below are the three Meet the Candidate/Petition Signing events being held in Tazewell County. One is being held in each Tazewell County Board District. If you cannot make it to yours, feel free to drop by at one of the others although you may not be able to sign some of the petitions. At these events may be candidates for that district’s county board seat(s), some county elected offices such as States Attorney, Circuit Clerk and Coroner, many state legislature candidates who are running for election or re-election as well as the justices running for a seat in the Fourth Judicial District and the Illinois Supreme Court. We will also have petitions for U.S. House of Representative candidates Darin LaHood (16th Congressional District) and newcomer Judge Joe McGraw (17th Congressional District).

Please mark the date of the event in your district and stop by for a few minutes to meet the candidates, ask them any questions you have and sign their petitions. THEY NEED YOU! These are informal events with finger food available.

Tazewell County GOP Statement on Israel

All of us have watched with horror the recent events in Israel. One has to wonder how human beings can do what these monsters did to the babies, the youth, the women, the elderly and the men of that nation. They heinously murdered entire families and destroyed innocent lives forever. This truly is Israel’s darkest moment.

We ask God for grace, strength and courage in times like this, now mainly for the citizens of Israel but also for ourselves. We struggle to understand how something like this could happen in a civilized world but the truth is there is no understanding this barbaric savagery. Witnessing the protests and listening to many of the comments on a number of our university campuses and within the halls of congress at both the state and federal level is also a testament to our own societal ills. It is a hard pill to swallow when the realization sets in that we may not be as civilized as we think we are. The only consoling thought for me personally in a time like this is these animals will have to account to the Holy Face of God for their abhorrent acts and while I should pray for Our Father to have mercy on their souls, my hope is that there is a very special place in hell for all of them. I find it impossible to pray for God to forgive them. Perhaps one day I will; but not today.

Israel now has to not only defend its homeland but must fight to preserve its very existence. The only thing most of us can do is pray for them so I appeal to you to remember the people of Israel as they deal with this and to ask our Heavenly Father to walk with them. The Tazewell County Republican Party stands firmly with Israel.

Last night, Wednesday, Oct 11, the Tazewell County, Illinois Republican Party was present and supportive in Rockford, IL at the launch of the Judge Joe McGraw campaign for the 17th Congressional District for the U.S. House of Representatives. Judge McGraw brings a wealth of experience and is focused on winning this seat which is currently being held by an inept Progressive Liberal. It is crucial to send someone like Judge Joe to Washington to continue the rescue of America from the destructive and failing policies of the bumbling Biden administration and the incompetent Liberal members of the House and Senate.

We will have petitions in the Tazewell County, Illinois Republican Party office in Tremont for those of you who live in the 17th Congressional District to sign.

Mayor Manier's Announcement;
I've served as the Mayor of Washington, Illinois for over 22 years and fully understand that local government is more important than State and Federal, because it affects us every day.

I know exactly how all cities are stuck with unfunded mandates, pension liabilities and continued lack of funding for municipalities.

I'd work for all our communities to make sure they all receive adequate funding from Springfield

08/11/2023

This is what a tyrannical government looks like and is precisely why the Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment. This devoid Pritzker administration and the corrupt Biden administration have no interest in preserving or defending our 2A rights which are given to us by God. This is a difficult time and people may have to make very difficult decisions in the very near future but the statement 'the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed" has meaning. Enough is enough. We will stand for our God-given rights in the face of tyranny.

The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that the state's "assault weapons" ban is constitutional, delivering a blow to Republican lawmakers and gun rights advocates who alleged it violated the Second Amendment.
