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.
