SPRINGFIELD - Despite promises to conservative members of the Illinois House Republican Caucus, Republican Leader Jim Durkin on Monday selected state Rep. Ed Sullivan, Jr. (R-Mundelein) to the Illinois House Republican Leadership Team. Sullivan will take the spot left vacant by JoAnn Osmond who recently retired.
“Ed Sullivan has done a great job as one of our floor leaders and is always eager to help members of our caucus,” said Durkin. “He has been willing to travel across the state to show support for other members and is often called upon for his advice.”
The leadership team is responsible for developing an agenda for the caucus; working through controversial issues and guiding other members.
Sullivan was one of three Republicans in the House to vote for same-sex marriage.
