LIBERTYVILLE - Five years after the Tea Party movement's rebirth in 2009, Northern Illinois Patriots are going strong with the leadership of Libertyville's Tony Raymond. The group will be celebrated its anniversary at a fundraiser Tuesday night.
Holding local and state governments accountable for their actions and how they spend taxpayer funds is an important part of Northern Illinois Patriots' efforts, and so this year they're presenting to "For the Good of Illinois'" CEO Adam Andrzejewski their Patriot of the Year award.
"Adam's work is important and we want to recognize his efforts," Raymond said.
Presenting the award to Andrzejewski was WIND 560 AM talk show host Joe Walsh, who received the first award in 2012.
