An independent political organization (IPO) is political group that works independently from any established political candidates or parties. In the 40th Ward, this means that while we support a progressive agenda and work with local politicians, we are not officially affiliated with a politician or party.
The 40th Ward map may look a little funky. It encompasses all or parts of the following neighborhoods: Andersonville, Bowmanville, Budlong Woods, Edgwater, Lincoln Square, Ravenswood, and Rogers Park.
Simply put, we support the community. We help educate residents on proposed changes to current laws or city programs, endorse candidates we believe will best serve the Ward, and work with local groups and politicians to address Ward needs.
