After the resignation of New Trier Township Republican Committeeman Danielle Mergner, Cook County GOP Chairman Sean Morrison appointed Kathleen Myalls to succeed Mergner.
“It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Kathleen Myalls to the post of Republican Committeeman for New Trier Township. Kathleen’s qualifications and dedication to the Illinois GOP make her an outstanding candidate for the position, and I look forward to seeing the great work she will do,” said Morrison.
Myalls is a private attorney at Interpublic Group of Companies since 2001 and has served as the company’s Assistant General Counsel since 2004.
She ran for State Representative in 2014 against Democrat Laura Fine and for New Trier Township Trustee in 2016. She also Joan McCarthy Lasonde’s campaign to unseat Jan Schakowsky in the 9th Congressional District.
"I am thankful to Chairman Morrison for the opportunity to serve the citizens and voters of New Trier Township. I look forward to energizing the Republican base and supporting local candidates throughout the Township," said Myalls.
The appointment takes effect immediately.
