5 Apply to be GOP's National Committeeman in Illinois

CHICAGO (AP) - Five men have applied to fill the Republican National Committeeman's post left open after Rich Williamson passed away suddenly last month.

Illinois Republican Party executive director Jayme Odom says the candidates for the prestigious but unpaid position include Kent Gray of Leland Grove, Vincent Kolber of Chicago, Mark Levine of Wilmette, Richard Porter of Winnetka and Robert Schillerstrom of Naperville. Gray and Porter are attorneys. Levine and Kolber have each managed businesses and Schillerstrom is a former chairman of the DuPage County Board. 

The Illinois National Committeeman is a voting member of the 168-member Republican National Committee and a non-voting member of the Illinois GOP's state central committee. 

The state central committee will make a selection at its Jan. 18 meeting in Chicago.
