Darling plans door-to-door approach as northwest side ward committeeman
Recently appointed 45th Ward precinct committeeman Bill Darling is vowing to go door to door as part of his plan to ignite the Republican base.
“I plan to visit every home in the precinct to get Republicans involved and, hopefully, swing some longtime Democrats into Republicans and/or independents,” Darling said in a news release after being installed in the post by northwest side GOP club chairman Matt Podgorski. “I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the NWGOP and I will work hard to elect Republicans.”
Podgorski hinted part of the job of doing that centers on recruiting quality candidates such as Darling.
“Bill has solid political experience and a strong network in the community,” Podgorski said in the release. “He lives in an area that leans Republican. In fact, Donald Trump carried his precinct in 2016. We are happy to have Bill officially on the team.”
A real estate executive by trade, Darling is a lifelong northwest side resident, who owns degrees from the Illinois Institute of Technology and Loyola University. Prior to going into real estate, Darling spent more than three decades at Commonwealth Edison Company, ascending to the position of public affairs director.
