Joe Cook Announces for 45th Ward Committeeperson

September 15th, 2023

After speaking with family and neighbors, and after much thought and consideration, I am honored to announce my candidacy for 45th Ward Democratic Committeeperson.

I have served as the 41st Ward Democratic Committeeperson for the past four years. Due to the recent re-map, our neighborhood is now in the 45th Ward so I am not eligible to run again for 41st Ward Democratic Committeeperson. I am proud of the work that the many volunteers of our Democratic Organization have done to recruit election judges, evaluate and recommend qualified Democratic candidates, and increase voter turnout. We have conducted open endorsement sessions for candidates in all races and will continue to do so.

I am grateful for the grassroots support of many of our neighbors. I am also honored to announce that I have the endorsements the following elected officials who represent parts of the 45th Ward: U.S. Congressman Mike Quigley, State Senator Ram Villivalam, State Representative Mike Kelly, and Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer. I am also honored to have strong support from Organized Labor and the many Unions who have supported me in the past.

Most importantly, I look forward to knocking on doors and speaking directly to voters to earn their support as well. It has been an absolute honor to be the representative for the 41st Ward to the Cook County Democratic Party. And I would be honored to continue in that role for the 45th Ward.
