We are proud to have stood with you over the past year. The rallies and the protests have been very encouraging. However, these alone will not make the difference we all desire. We have to "engage the system." We need to win in November. Much depends on this single election. It will ultimately determine what type of country we will become. What we do now will determine what happens then.

The vast majority of conservative committeemen are Social Conservatives, pro life, pro second amendment, with a believe in Transparent, open Government No one except the people own any elected seat, and freedom of religion does not mean absences of God. The following enumerates what a conservative committeeman believes.
I BELIEVE God gives us the rights of Life Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness. The strength of our nation lies with the individual, and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability must be honored.
I BELIEVE in Capitalism. Free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have made this nation the most successful nation on Earth. The Constitution as it was written is the Rule of Law, and the 10th amendment protecting States Rights must be adhered to.
I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide only critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I BELIEVE in peace through strength. We need to secure our borders and not give benefits and rights to anyone except citizens of the U.S. Terrorism is a war with groups aligned with certain countries, and enacted by un-uniformed soldiers. Terrorists need to be treated as enemy combatants not U.S. citizens. Politicians need to leave winning the war to the Generals, and return to the Rules of Engagement used in World War 2.
I BELIEVE in limited Government, less regulation, less taxes, legal immigration, and English as the National Language.
The Conservative Committeeman Project is one of numerous ways to elect conservative candidates to positions in government. Since, Village or City, Township, County, State, and local Boards like School and Library impact our way of life, we need to not only help conservative candidates, but consider becoming a candidate especially in races where there is no candidate.

becoming a Conservative Committeeman http://www.plainfieldtv.com/Janet.html
In all counties other than Cook, Precinct Committeemen are elected to a two-year term in all even-year Primary Elections. It is an all-volunteer position. It's a party post (Republican or Democrat), as opposed to a public one.
A Precinct Committeeman represents a Party's voters of his or her Precinct on the County Central Committee. Precinct Committeemen also elect the Party’s County Chairman (in all counties outside of Cook).
By becoming a Precinct Committeeman you can take a leadership role in advancing the conservative principles of lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, individual freedom, strong national defense, and traditional family values in your own neighborhood.
A Precinct Committeeman's job is to deliver the maximum number of votes in his or her precinct on Election Day. Precinct Committeemen represent the core of any Party’s grassroots effort.
Being a Precinct Committeeman means being the most direct contact point for fellow voters of your chosen party (Republican or Democrat) in your neighborhood.
STEP ONE: MEET THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS
Must be a United States citizen, Must be 18 years of age, Registered voter of the precinct
Steve Balich (815) 557-7196 will assist you if you need additional direction in seeking a committeman position in Will County, IL. or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also be glad to assist you if you are outside of the Will County area as well.
STEP TWO: GET ON THE BALLOT

Nominating Petition Form http://www.elections.il.gov/Downloads/ElectionInformation/pdf/P-27.pdf

Packets can also be picked up either at the Illinois State Board of Election's Springfield or Chicago office. Your County Clerks Office will also offer packets. Petition Packets are available approximately one month prior to the first day to circulate Petitions. You can also download the Petition Packet from the Illinois State Board of Election's website.
Circulate Nominating Petitions.
You may begin circulating your Nominating Petitions on August 4, 2009.
Meet the Signature Requirements.
Nominating Petitions must contain the valid signatures of a minimum of 10 primary voters of the party of your choice. Try to receive more than the minimum. Get petitions notarized and turn them in. That's it!
STEP THREE: CAMPAIGN
In most cases you will not have an opponent running against you. A campaign for Precinct Committeeman often won't require a great deal of campaigning. While Precinct Committeemen races are small, they offer an excellent way to get started in politics. Many top public officials will tell you they cut their teeth in politics as a Precinct Committeeman. Some even remain Precinct Committeemen as they seek other posts in public office. This is a good starting point for understanding the process and to pursue further positions if interested in doing so.
