Formation of a Catholic Caucus

By December 16, 2021No Comments

The New York Young Republican Club is excited to announce the formation of our organization’s fifth caucus, the Catholic Caucus.

The Catholic Caucus was built to ensure the representation of Catholics as a voting bloc in the Republican party.  About one-third of New York City identifies with the Catholic Church, a number about evenly split between white and Hispanic voters.

Historically, Catholics have played a major role in shaping New York culture, not to mention the foundational principles of our modern civilization.

As a party defending religious freedom and traditional values, the GOP stands with the long-cherished traditions of the Catholic faith.

The current officers of the Catholic Caucus are as follows:

Chairman: Michael R. Bartels
Vice-Chairman: Andres R. Marmelo
Treasurer: Vacant
Secretary: Vacant
