Exiting Stage Left……
Dear Ada County Democrats:
I notified our County Central Committee and State Party early last week that after much thought I have decided to announce my decision to resign as County Party Chair with the Ada County Democratic Party Central Committee, effective March 20th, 2013.
The past two years as Ada County Party Chair have truly been a rewarding experience working with very dedicated democrats throughout Ada County, the Treasure Valley and Idaho. We have grown and will continue to move forward. I have been heavily involved with the County Party for many years and have learned much through my experiences over that time and will leave with many wonderful memories.
I have worked with an amazing group of elected officials and have seen first-hand how dedicated our elected democrats are to assuring that Idahoans have an ethical government that puts citizens first and thank them for their service.
I have also worked with an amazing candidates and campaign teams. In that time, our County Party has increase investment in Legislative Districts, and its ability to reach beyond democratic strongholds expanding its focus to local and County elections. We have regained seats and have begun reaching into areas where Democrats have not held seats before. With every conversation we have with people throughout Ada County, we open doors for communication and cooperation that become the bedrock for winning campaigns and better representation for the residents of Ada County. To all of our candidates, I say THANK YOU for stepping forward and running.
The State Democratic Party and dedicated state party administrators have been invaluable partners in building an organizational structure that will continue its work beyond the campaign season. They are a great resource for County Parties and our candidates and elected official. Thank you for all of the hours you have put in and continue to put in every day.
One thing that makes any organization move forward is the dedication of its volunteers, and Ada County has amazing volunteers. We are thankful that they give their time in many ways from data entry to door knocking, contacting voters and watching the polls.
I’d also like to thank all of our Ada County donors. You are helping fund democracy from the ground up.
