Urbanski running for 45th Ward Republican Commiteewoman
Chicago native Kerri Urbanski hopes to be a voice for Republican constituents in the city’s 45th ward.
Urbanski is running for 45th Ward Republican Committeewoman in the primary election on March 17, 2020. She looks forward to connecting with the ward’s right-leaning constituents, and is committed to recruiting and supporting GOP candidates.
According to Republican News Watch, the position of ward committeeperson is an unpaid, volunteer role with a four-year term. Each committeeperson serves as a leader for their party, assisting with voter registration, community forums, election operations and more.
Candidates must circulate a petition for signatures to be placed on the ballot. For Ward 45, candidates for committeeperson must receive at least 318 signatures of Republican primary electors, according to the 2020 Chicago Board of Election Commissioners' candidate guide.
The Northwest Side GOP Club, which is supporting Urbanski’s bid, recently held its petition drive kickoff for Urbanski and three other ward committeeman candidates. Urbanski serves as treasurer for the organization, which she has been involved in for more than two years.
A lifetime resident of the 45th ward, Urbanski attended Resurrection College Prep High School. After earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting from DePaul University, she completed requirements to become a certified public accountant in Illinois. She became further certified in the areas of risk management assurance and fraud examination.
She has further served her community by organizing benefits – which often exceeded fundraising goals – for causes close to her heart.
