JOLIET – The Will County Republican Party, Tea Party activists, elected Will County leaders, and concerned citizens say they will be rallying at the Will County Courthouse September 10, 2012 to protest "the Balkanization of Will County citizens by Cook County Democrats."
Will County Republican Chairman Ed Ronkowski said, "With redistricting, the Chicago Machine has sliced Will County into six pieces, half of which belong to Chicago Democrats. Will County Democrats stood by silently and allowed this to happen, essentially turning Will County into “Will Colony.” On September 10th, we will declare our independence."
Republicans in Will County are staging an active campaign to elect a conservative Republican for county chairman along with county officials and county board members. The area Tea Party movement is promoting conservative policies in the county by working within the Republican Party.
