OTTAWA – The La Salle County Republican Central Committee is hosting a “Rally for Representation” in Ottawa’s Washington Square Park this weekend.
According to a news release by the LaSalle County Republican Central Committee, they say that over the past six years, Illinois’ 16th Congressional District Rep. Adam Kinzinger has not communicated with the La Salle County Republican Central Committee, despite repeated invitations to do so. LaSalle County Republican officials go on to say that Kinzinger’s remarks towards former President Donald Trump have reached a level of disconnect and inappropriateness that they, as his fellow Republicans and constituents, can no longer remain silent.
Kinzinger’s Communication Director Maura Gillespie responded to the news with the following statement: “The Congressman, along with his team, has enjoyed a long relationship with the local party leaders. Congressman Kinzinger looks forward to building on that solid foundation as they work together to navigate these next four years under a Democrat majority and through the course of this pandemic, keeping the focus on serving the community and the shared interests of the party.”
The La Salle County Republican Central Committee is hosting a, “Rally for Representation” in Ottawa’s Washington Park, the home of the Lincoln-Douglas Debate, on Saturday, January 30th at 1:00 PM. The committee invited Rep. Kinzinger to the rally to speak to his constituents.
