DPV Central Commitee to meet, consider elections, resolutions

  • by

The next quarterly meetings of the Democratic Party of Virginia Central and Steering Commitees will be held on December 5-6, 2008 at the Doubletree Hotel in Charlottesville.  The Central Commitee and its officers are up for election in the Spring of 2009 and we will consider the processes for those elections.  The Commitees will also consider a resolution on ten voting-related issues, including support for early voting and facilitating college student voter registration on their college communities, and a resolution supporting nonpartisan redistricting.   Texts of the resolutions follow.

DNC Should Continue 50 State Staffing

  • by

Democratic successes over the past four years, including Obama’s election, owe a lot to the DNC 50 State Strategy which placed 3-4 staff people per state to assist state Democratic parties.   The program was scheduled to terminate on November 30, 2008 and apparently is doing so.  The new DNC leadership may — and should — resume the program, but in the meantime, we are losing 183 experienced and knowledgeable field people.  The DNC should keep these folks on staff until decisions about the future course of the program are made.  Below is my letter to Chairman Dean.
