State Rep. Bellock named first female Deputy House Minority Leader
WESTMONT – State Rep. Patricia Bellock (R-Westmont) was recently appointed Deputy House Minority Leader.
Named by House Republican Leader Jim Durkin, Bellock will be the first woman in Illinois history to hold this 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.”
