Jan Klaas

Vice Chair

I have been married to Craig Klaas for 46 years. We have 3 children and 11 grandchildren.  I became active in local and state politics to protect our rights to home school. I have been a PC in my neighborhood for 25 years. I've also served as secretary, vice-chair and chairman of the WCRCC at various times. I am a trustee in Cherry Valley Township and continue to serve in that position.

I have been a member of WCRCC for years as a Precinct Committeeman.  I became more engaged in 2020 when I ran for Illinois Senate District 34.  I lost that race but went on to be elected as a Harlem Township Trustee in 2021.  I was elected chairman of WCRCC during the County Convention July 2022.  It is a privilege to work with so many energized Precinct Committeepersons and volunteers to make a positive impact in Winnebago County

I have lived my entire life here in Rockford. I grew up with Republican parents, but I became a life-time convert to conservatism myself when I wrote a 20-page research paper on Ronald Reagan my senior year in high school and was swept away by his incredible ability to communicate the conservative message of smaller and more accountable government, individual freedom, and personal responsibility. His statement that, “Either you will control your government, or government will control you” is truer than ever.
