PEORIA – Illinois Review was mentioned in the IL GOP Platform Committee meeting at the party's convention Friday in Peoria. Here's our response:
There's a very upset IL GOP platform committee member that just blasted fellow committee members for distributing his contact info and Illinois Review publishing it. He really doesn't know how we obtained the information.
Facts are that the committee members were representing the people of their district, and without the contact information being made public, there would have been no way for constituents to voice their opinions. Committee members would not have had to hear from those outside the committee.
We sometimes must make tough calls. This is one that was demanded by the circumstances. We serve our readers.
