It would seem that the new leadership of the Cook County Republican Party may be making some long-overdue progress. Sources tell Illinois Review that a number of critical administrative items have been finally been addressed, including:
- Recruiting a Leadership Team to run the Cook County efforts, including filling several positions that had not been filled for several years.
- Filing corrected reports with the State Board of Elections (ISBE), which had been demanding the information for several months.
- Paying several fines levied by ISBE due to non-compliance in election reporting.
- Updating all bank records and account access.
- Filing an updated Corporate Annual Report with the Secretary of State.
- Completing the set up of a CCRP email system.
With these items taken care of, CCRP officials told IR that they are finally in a position to focus exclusively on the future and what progress they can make for the Republican cause in Cook County.
