Will County GOP cheers upsets, praises all who strived
Barb Delaney and Gregg Bickus earned special recognition from the Will County Republicans recently for their upset victories that landed them on the Lockport Township board.
The party also congratulated other GOP victors in the April 4 election and thanked all who tried to make much-needed changes.
"Many other fine Republicans won races all over Will County," the party said in a release. "Kudos to all those winners! And for those Republicans who stepped up to run for local office but did not receive enough votes to win, thank you for investing your time and money to run for office to try to better your community."
Other Republican winners included Beecher Trustee Stacey Mazurek, Homer Glen Trustees Sharon Sweas and Brian Burian, Village of Plainfield Trustee Margie Bonuchi, Homer Township Trustee Edward Kalas, Wilmington Township Trustee Bob Neises and Plainfield Township Trustees Matthew Starr, Ernest Knight and Debbie Kraulidis.
Judy Wooten and Pam Myers won township supervisor races in Channahon Township and Homer Township, respectively. Three Republicans won township clerk positions – Kathie Holubek in Crete Township, Linsey Sowa in Homer Township and Chuck Willard in Plainfield Township – while Karen Szynkowski won the Homer Township assessor race and John Cielenski won the Lockport Township highway commissioner race.
The Will County Republicans also announced several upcoming events, including a meeting on April 20, county board member Mike Fricilone’s reception on May 4, and fundraisers for Ben Braun, who is running for circuit court judge, and county board member Ray Tuminello, on May 23 and 24, respectively.
