17th Ward Republican Committeeman Curtis Lacy was honored for his lifetime of service to the GOP at the May 24th meeting. Committeeman Lacy, who first became involved in the Republican Party over 50 years ago, is one of the longest-serving Committeemen in the Chicago GOP and is the ranking member of the Chicago Republican Party's Black Caucus.
Deputy Committeemen William "Mr. D" Delay and Percy Coleman (pictured) accepted the award on behalf of Committeeman Lacy.
"Curtis Lacy has been a steadfast supporter of the Republican Party for over 50 years, and today we are honored to accept this award on his behalf," said Delay. "On behalf of the Chicago Republican Party, we thank him for his dedication to our party and to his community."
"We have to remember that African American Republicans are Republicans by choice," added Coleman in his remarks. "The African American community in Chicago is the largest untapped source of political support for the Republican Party, and we thank Committeeman Lacy for being on the front lines for our party for his entire political career."
