Welcome to the WCRCC
Judy Barr Topinka, Illinois Comptroller, passed away following a stroke on December 10, 2014. She was the only woman to hold two constitutional offices in Illinois, following terms in the state House and Senate and as state Treasurer. A celebration of her life was held December 17th in Countryside, Illinois. Her vigor and dedication to our state will be missed -- please keep her family and close friends in your thoughts in the coming weeks and months.
Winnebago County, Illinois is divided into nearly 200 precincts. Our organization is comprised of committeemen elected from those precincts, as well as appointed to precincts; management of the organization is placed in the hands of selected committeemen (captains) and officers who are elected by the committeemen at the county convention (following every even-year primary).
Purpose of the Winnebago County Republican Central Committee:
- To develop, foster, advance, and perpetuate the principles of the Republican party
- To support and otherwise do all within its power to insure the election of all Republican nominees for public office whose names appear on the general election ballots in the County of Winnebago
- To fill such vacancies as may occur by virtue of the death or inability of any Republican nominee to serve as such nominee or as an official of the Republican party, within the jurisdiction of the County of Winnebago
