The 42nd Ward Republican Organization was founded in March 2000 to represent and create a grass roots forum for the many Republicans who live in the ward. Since that time the 42nd Ward GOP has grown into one of the most active and the largest Republican organization in Chicago. 42nd Ward GOP volunteers obtain signatures, distribute literature , telephone canvas, and promote Republican Candidates for local, state, and federal elected office. The ward has been particularly successful in winning the 42nd Ward for several statewide candidates. The 42nd Ward Republican Organization holds meetings and activities for Republicans. Our boat cruise has become a “must go to” summertime activity drawing attendees from throughout Cook County and typically sells out.
The mission of the 42nd Ward Regular Republican Organization is to represent all Republicans living in the 42nd ward. This is accomplished by:
• Organizing and building a strong and inclusive Republican ward organization
• Recruiting and appointing authentic Republican Judges of Election
• Organizing and supporting voter registration
• Recruiting, endorsing, and assisting qualified Republican candidates seeking elected public office.
The 42nd Ward consists of North Michigan Avenue, Gold Coast, Rush Street, South Lincoln Park, and the Loop north of Congress. The Ward is the city’s densest and wealthiest, and it is fast becoming the most Republican.
