The Peoria County Republican Party has announced the featured speaker for its annual Lincoln Day Dinner.
Former Texas Governor and 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry will speak during the event scheduled for May 27 at the Marriott Pere Marquette Hotel.
“We are excited to have a nationally recognized speaker,” Peoria County Republican Party chair Katherine Coyle says, “who as governor of Texas led his state in job creation and reduced the size of the state bureaucracy.”
Speakers invited to join Perry are Illinois Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti and Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger.
