All Politics Is Local: Building A Coalition in New Trier
Our work to protect our children from national politics starts right here in New Trier!
Building a Big Tent Republican Party
Most parents in New Trier are starting to push back against the liberal agenda being forced on our children in schools. Most residents in New Trier are beginning to see our liberty and freedom are under attack.
The time is now to bring all those who share the same values with us into our party, and reclaim New Trier Township as the shining city on the hill.
It will be a township once again where parents have the rights for their children’s education, business owners have the rights to decide for their own businesses and individuals have the rights to make their own health care decisions.
Why Is Julie's Campaign Color Lavender?
Because lavender is the color that symbolizes cancer survivors, and Julie is a two-time cancer survivor. In her 30's, she faced a life-changing experience that taught her we cannot always count on "tomorrow" and that there isn't always going to be "later" or "enough time" for what we need to do. This taught her what a "sense of urgency" meant. Just like when she was diagnosed with cancer in her 30s, she sees the current political situation of our country with a "sense of urgency" that we may not be able to count on "tomorrow." We must turn around our country. And It needs to happen now.
Building a National Ethnic Minority Coalition
Julie has worked all her working life in healthcare. After the 2016 Presidential election, she became active politically when suddenly she was being called a racist, sexist, and a white nationalist on the sole basis of voting for Trump. Upon investigation, she learned that most of the members in the Asian community were voting for Democrats based solely on the false rhetoric that Republicans are racists and the GOP is the party for white men. To combat this false rhetoric, she began building a conservative Asian coalition in 2017 that focused on educating and informing Asian communities on policies in the Chicago area.
Victories in 2019 municipal races in two Chicago-area villages are a direct result of Julie’s effort to engage and educate the Asian communities. Seeing the impact of her effort in local Asian communities, Julie took her work to the national level, and expanded her effort to build a national coalition for all ethnic minority communities through her PAC, Our America.
Realizing the Need to Re-build the Local Base in New Trier
In 2018, she ran for State Representative in House District 18 as a Republican. Through her candidacy as a Republican candidate, as well as through her Asian coalition, Julie was able to inform Asian voters about policy differences between the Democrat Party and the Republican Party, destroying the misconception among many Asian voters that the Republican Party is a party for white men. While she had been active with her minority coalition at the national level since 2018, the school lockdowns during the pandemic brought her attention back to Illinois and to the local level.
In 2021, seeing the lack of leadership and utter disregard for parental rights, Julie ran for New Trier School Board.
During her campaign in the school board race, she realized that while there are 13,000 Republicans in New Trier, there is currently no way to mobilize the base or any kind of organized network to communicate with them. She realized she had been building a minority coalition at the national level when her own hometown is in desperate need of a coalition. This is the reason why Julie is running for New Trier Township Republican Committeeman.
As the Committeeman, Julie will build a strong coalition that will be the force in New Trier to protect and uphold our parental rights for our children’s education, individual liberty and freedom to make decisions for our businesses and healthcare.
Julie’s entire family moved to the US from South Korea in 1987. Even though South Korea is considered a democracy, she remembers the shock at experiencing true individual liberty and freedom in America that she had never experienced in Korea. Julie’s grandfather moved his entire family to America when he was in his late 70s because he wanted to make sure his descendants were safe from the threat of Communism. Julie now sees that threat rising right here in America. Because of her personal experience with an oppressive government, Julie is desperate to protect America, the last best hope on Earth – if America falls, we have nowhere else to go.
The Education of Julie Cho
Julie has a Master of Public Policy in Healthcare Policy and Administration, a Master of Arts in Social Service Administration, and an MBA from the University of Chicago. She has a B.S. in Nutrition and a B.A. in biochemistry and psychology from Case Western Reserve University.
Julie held a license as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor from 2000 to 2004.
Julie has been a member of the Leadership Network at the American Enterprise Institute since 2019.
Julie has been a Certified Content Expert for Patient-Centered Medical Home by NCQA since 2015.
It was the Republican Party that freed the slaves. It was the Republican Party that fought for Civil Rights. It was the Republican Party that pioneered Women’s voting rights.
It is now the Republican Party fighting for individual rights and freedom. It is now the Republican Party defending women’s rights for fair play. It is now the Republican Party protecting our children from pornography in classrooms.
A majority of Americans have values that more closely align with the Republican Party. Most Americans want criminals off the streets, sexual and racial indoctrination out of schools, and to be allowed to make their own decisions about health care and their children’s education. These are winning issues for Republicans. These are issues that resonate with ethnic minority communities whom the liberal left has deceived by portraying themselves as “saviors” and minorities as "victims”.
We have lost the ethnic minority communities because of our failure to message and brand our party in the way that resonates with them. As an immigrant from Korea, Julie has perspectives on the messaging, image, and branding that will effectively communicate to everyone, including minority communities, that we are the party that truly represents the people of America.
Until 35 years ago, Illinois was a red state. So how did Democrats take over the state? It was not done overnight. They started building local bases in townships throughout the state. One by one, as the townships went under Democrat control, the state went to the Democrats.
Taking back the state will have to begin with building our base in local townships first. Building a base is not easy. It is not something that can be done without a great amount of hard labor and effort. It requires boots on the ground. It requires strategy, building real relationships, and a sense of comradery. And it requires dedication.
Through her work in the past 4 years, Julie has proven myself as a dedicated defender and fighter for our cause, our Constitution, and our country. It is time we start rebuilding our party in New Trier.
Julie will work to rebuild the New Trier Republican Organization with precinct captains in every precinct, recruiting candidates for every seat in every election cycle, running fair and honest endorsement sessions, and promoting and advocating for our values.
Once we rebuild our local base in New Trier, we will be able to start working with other township Republican organizations to build county-wide and state-wide bases to take back the state. As the home of President Lincoln, I will work with other township committeemen to reclaim Illinois as a Republican state once again.
