Republican Women of Parkridge organize fall kick-off
The Republican Women of Parkridge are kicking off their fall club program with a free meet-and-greet with two Republican candidates for state office.
Jim Dodge is on the GOP ticket for state treasurer and Darlene Senger is running for comptroller, and both will join the fall program.
Senger, the state GOP nominee for Comptroller is a three-term state representative who grew up in the Naperville area and ran for Congress in 2014.
Before entering politics, Senger served as the director of trust accounting and performance evaluation at a prominent bank. She also worked with the Chicago branch of SEI, a pension consulting firm, as its vice president of product planning.
Jim Dodge, the GOP nominee for State Treasurer, has expressed that he “knows how to grow a local economy, and he has experienced ... the first-hand, negative effects that tax increases and burdensome regulations have on jobs and economic growth.”
Dodge, an Illinois National Guard veteran, attended the University of Chicago and received his MBA. 29 years ago, he became a village clerk in Orland Park. He first became an elected village trustee in 1996 and has served since then.
The Republican Women of Park Ridge aim to help smooth the path toward Republican victories in the state. The meeting will take place at the O’Connor Building in Prospect Park.
