At the DuPage County Republican Central Committee meeting, Chairman Dan Cronin stepped down as Chairman of the DuPage Republican Party. After Vice Chairman Pat Durante also decided to step down, a vote was taken and Wayne Township Republican Chairman Randy Ramey was unanimously elected to fill the remainder of Chairman Cronin’s term by all other township chairmen.
Chairman Ramey has served as a precinct committeeman for the past 20 years, and has served for two terms as Chairman of the Wayne Township Republican Organization and another two terms as its Vice-Chairman. Additionally, Chairman Ramey has served since 2005 as State Representative for the 55th Legislative District.
In his four terms as a member of the Illinois General Assembly, Representative Ramey fought against all tax increases, especially the recent income and business tax increases. Representative Ramey has advocated countless ways to save the state money since arriving in Springfield. This past year, Representative Ramey negotiated a bill to ensure local governments are given the lowest possible price for all publications they are required to put in print. Ramey was also instrumental in last year’s bill putting together the reforms for the DuPage Water Commission.
Chairman Ramey would like to thank Chairman Dan Cronin for his years of devoted service to the party. Finally, Ramey vows to move the party forward and prepare the DuPage Republican Party for the upcoming primary and general elections.
