The Peoria County Republican Party

Coyle HeadshotWelcome from Chairman

Welcome to the Peoria County Republican Party’s webpage. I appreciate your interest in our county party organization and hope you will consider getting involved this year.

Ten months from now I hope to join you in celebrating the election of our first Republican President in eight years. This milestone will not be possible however, without a great deal of groundwork by our local, state and national party. As in 2012 and 2014, when our office served as an RNC Victory center, the Peoria Republicans are ready to work and need your support.

While the 2015 calendar year hasn’t been as busy with campaign activities, our Headquarters has been active with preparations for the 2016 Presidential election year. Our Lincoln Day Dinner with keynote speaker Governor Rick Perry garnered great reviews and raised significant funds to support 2016 candidates. Recruiting precinct committeemen and election judges, updating volunteer and donor lists and gathering petition signatures for our 2016 primary candidates have been major priorities.

We have bid on and secured the rights to host the 2016 Illinois Republican Convention in Peoria, May 20-22. The selection process was extremely competitive. After months of hard work, we can now prepare to host nearly 1,200 delegates from all over the state in beautiful downtown Peoria. Clearly, 2015 has been a year of numerous accomplishments for our local party.

The Peoria County Republican Party is poised for victory again…but only with the commitment of each Republican voter and volunteer. Victories come as a result of hard work, sacrifice and financial support. Our recent efforts and accomplishments must be magnified many times over in the next ten months in order to put a Republican in the White House. Please consider how your time and talents might best help us accomplish this goal.

Thank you again for your interest in the Peoria Republican Party.

Many thanks,

Katherine Coyle, Chair
