The Illinois Republican Liberty Caucus aims to refocus the Illinois Republican Party by promoting the policies of limited government and free enterprise here in Illinois.
The Illinois Republican Liberty Caucus convention — held February 26th — unanimously elected officers committed to taking an active role in changing the Illinois political environment. The IL-RLC executive board now consists of Chairman Allen Skillicorn, Vice-Chairman Scott Davis, Treasurer Michael Smyk, and Secretary Laurie Bluedorn. At-large board members are Alan Fortini-Campbell, Justin Kuehlthau, Patricia Hampton, Harvey Bluedorn, Blair Garber, and Dane Stier.
Founded in 1991, the Republican Liberty Caucus exists to promote individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise within the Republican Party by promoting these ideals among party officials and its various organizations, identifying and supporting candidates sympathetic with these ideals, and promoting caucus membership among Republican Party registrants, officials, and officeholders.
The IL-RLC realizes that Illinois’ single-party rule is not healthy for good governance and the well-being of Illinois families. The IL Republican Party offers the best vehicle to change Illinois for the better, but after decades of patronage and conformity, the republican brand has been tarnished. We believe that less government intrusion means more liberty, and we will work through local activists, candidates, and influence makers to oppose government excess and demand accountability to the people. It is the objective of the IL-RLC to reclaim the Republican Party as the party of liberty as it was founded back in 1854.
