Where’s Weyermuller? Attending the Republican Women of Park Ridge Event 2016




By Mark Weyermuller - 

Leslie Munger, the Illinois State Comptroller was the keynote speaker at Republican Women of Park Ridge Annual Meeting. They are a grassroots organization advocating for a conservative agenda while promoting candidates, discussing issues, stressing good public policy, and getting out the vote. 

Recently they hosted a showing of the film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. It's about the tragic events on 9-11-2012 when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Clinton grew up about four blocks from the Pickwick Theater in Park Ridge where the film was shown.

The Republican Women hosted Heidi Cruz, the wife of Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz last month at a meet and greet. Later that night, many in the organization attended the Northwest Suburban Lincoln Day Dinner where Senator Ted Cruz was the keynote speaker.


At the most recent event, Munger gave the audience an update on the budget situation in Springfield. She said, "Illinois does not have a revenue problem, Illinois has a spending problem."

She spoke of numerous actions her and Governor Bruce Rauner are doing for his Turn Around Agenda. Illinois leaders have made many failed public policy decisions over the past 35 years that need to be fixed as people continue to leave the state, with the remainder being overtaxed and underserved.

The Republican Women of Park Ridge met this last Thursday night in Centennial Activity Center in Park Ridge partly to elect officers, as they do yearly. Sworn in as officers were Susan Sweeney for President, Char Foss-Eggemann for VP, Christie Depkon and Donna Adam.  

Leslie Munger had the honor of swearing in the new officers.   Longtime member and former President Penny Pullen announced that she and her sister Pam will soon be moving to Grand Rapids to be near relatives.  They will be sorely missed.

Other notables in the room included Cook County Review Commissioner Dan Patlak and candidate for Cook County Clerk Diane Shapiro.

  1. Well, I was just about to comment that at a time when there isn’t a bit of difference between Rs and Ds, this article reminds me that the Rs still have – BY FAR – the more beautiful women.
    And then I read down further and saw the hideous Goldman-Sachs / Council on Foreign Relations (aka globalist sellout organization) Queen Bought-n-Sold Cruz.
    You had me, then you lost me.
