Illinois Review –
WESTMONT – State Rep. Patti Bellock (R-Hinsdale) has been named Deputy House Republican Leader by the new House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs).
House Republicans are hailing the appointment as historic, since Bellock will be the first woman to serve in that position.
“I am honored to embrace this opportunity to help lead our caucus and our state with a clear focus on the need to restore confidence in Illinois’ future,” Bellock said. “To do this, we must bring stability to state finances to ease the burden on working families, allow for robust private-sector job creation and complete the cost-saving Medicaid reforms we have worked together to achieve.”
