After Quick Intervention by Durkin/Curran, IDOT Accelerates 159th Street Construction

After recently being notified of delays in construction on 159th Street that could extend into 2020, village officials reached out to their state legislators for assistance.

HTRO Statement on the Candidacy of Arthur Jones

The Homer Township Republican Organization and its members, in no uncertain terms, disavow the candidacy of Arthur Jones.  There is no place in the Republican Party for the hateful views espoused by this man.  We explored the potential of having him removed from the ballot, as we did in 2016, but it was clear that he had exceeded the signatures required under state law.  The Homer Township Republican Organization calls on him to withdraw his name from the ballot immediately.

The History of the GOP

 “We Promise Equal Opportunity, Not Equal Outcomes” – Paul Ryan
