MACOMB –Assistant House Minority Leader Norine Hammond (R-Macomb) was feted by the Township Officials of Illinois (TOI) with their President’s Award at the organization’s annual conference on November 13.

“Representative Hammond is a true champion of local government. As a former Township official herself, she truly understands and appreciates the importance of Township government. I could think of no one more deserving of the TOI Presidents Award,” said TOI Executive Director Bryan Smith.
