Peter Kopsaftis says he's looking to rejuvenate the Barrington Township Republican Organization.

Kopsaftis, the township GOP's new president, said the organization has developed a new direction that includes placing local issues, causes and political races at the forefront, along with a "fresh and bold" logo.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

In addition, the Barrington Township Republicans plan to build a diverse network of members that fully encapsulate the range of center-right viewpoints in the area, he said.

Kopsaftis said the fresh thinking will include a candidates' night hosted by the organization starting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at McGonigal's Pub, 105 S. Cook St. in downtown Barrington. Candidates for federal and Cook County offices in the GOP primary March 17 will be part of the evening.

Scheduled are five Republicans running for a U.S. Senate seat: Casey Chlebek, Mark Curran, Peggy Hubbard, Robert Marshall and Tom Tarter. The winner will face Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin in November.

Also on the agenda are 6th Congressional District candidates Jeanne Ives of Wheaton and Gordon "Jay" Kinzler. The Republican primary winner will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Rep. Sean Casten.
