The strength of the bipartisan relationships between by Illinois REALTORS® and members of the General Assembly were never more evident than Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as Illinois Democrats and Republicans held fundraising events at the REALTORS® headquarters in Springfield.

On Tuesday, Illinois Democrats and their supporters gathered the night before Governor’s Day was celebrated at the Illinois State Fair. Among the notable Democrats were Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton.

On Wednesday, Illinois Republicans gathered with supporters. Among the Republicans were Senate Republican Leader and REALTOR® Bill Brady of Bloomington and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin of Western Springs, as well as U.S. Rep. Darin LaHood of Peoria. Today is Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair.

On both occasions, Illinois REALTORS® Senior Vice President of Governmental Affairs Greg St. Aubin and Senior Director of Legislative & Political Affairs Julie Sullivan were on hand to welcome visitors.
