On Saturday the County Chairmen representing the 7 counties of the 13th Congressional district selected Myles Nelson to serve out the remainder of outgoing Committeeman Tim Butler’s four-year term on the ILGOP State Central Committee.

We’re very excited about the leadership Myles will bring to the State Central Committee. He is a passionate and talented young man, who will be a key voice in shaping the future direction of our party as we work to take back control of our state from JB Pritzker and the Democrats. Myles has some big shoes to fill, but his track record of local leadership and conservative values distinguished him for this position,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy

Myles Nelson lives in Collinsville and is an alumnus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Myles is a member of the Madison County Farm Bureau, Illinois State Rifle Association, and the National Rifle Association. He currently serves as the Campaign Manager for United States Congressman Mike Bost in Illinois’ 12th Congressional District. Myles will be an active Committeeman and keep an open line of communication with Republicans in the 13th Congressional District while upholding our conservative values at the State Party level.

The State Central Committee is the governing body of the Illinois Republican Party. Each Congressional district elects one member, and vacancies are filled by the county chairmen of their district, whose votes are weighted proportional to their primary vote share. Myles is replacing outgoing State Central Committeeman and Former State Representative Tim Butler who recently resigned from his post.

I thank Former Representative Butler for his many years of public service. He served his constituents with exemplary passion and distinction in the State Legislature and served our Party on the State Central Committee with equal vigor,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy. “Though we’re sorry to see him go, we are confident that his seat on our committee is in good hands with Myles Nelson, and we wish Representative Butler well in his new endeavors.”
