Since I interned at Americans for Democratic Action in the 1980, I have been involved with Democratic Party rules issues. I have worked with many grassroots, local committee, and other party members to develop fair and clear party rules that encourage maximum participation. For the past three cycles, I have drafted and obtained DNC approval for Virginia’s National Convention Delegate Selection Plan. I have also drafted materials and made presentations to numerous Democratic groups around the Virginia explaining the process and this year even prepared a video, available on U-Tube.
After my election to the DNC in 2008, I set up the DemRulz.Org blog, primarily to keep Virginia Democrats informed about DPVA and DNC issues, but also to serve as a national resource on party rules issues. I am proud to be one of the few DNC members who has a regular blog and DemRulz is one of the few national blogs that focus on party rules.
“Whenever I want to know about anything that is happening within the DNC — meetings, rules changes, whatever — DemRulz is among the first stops I make. Frank’s site is an invaluable resource to the work I do at FHQ.” – Josh Putnam, Frontloading HQ
“Thanks for your solid reporting on Democratic rules on DemRulz.Org. I’ve consulted your website more than once to find out the latest developments.” – Jeff Berman, Obama National Delegate Director, Author of The Magic Number
“Although he is not a member of the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee, Frank has attended nearly every meeting over the past four years and done a great job of reporting on and analyzing DNC rules issues.” – Mame Reiley, Member, DNC RBC.
“Thank you for your site: demrulz. An oasis of sanity in an otherwise chaotic world. It looks like I’ll be involved in the Democrats Abroad global primary, and I’m grateful that your site exists.” – Rob Carolina, Democrats Abroad.
