I've talked to many of our current county chairs recently, some are running for re-election and others are stepping down to make room for "new blood" while others are simply being challenged for their positions. To all of the candidates I say, good luck , and thank you for being willing to run for this important office. You are an important part of the grassroots work and much of the local success we will achieve, as Democrats, in 2008 will be due to your leadership.
And to those who will cast votes for these county leaders, please carefully consider the leadership and experiences offered by the candidates. It's important to elect people who have the time and the temperament to energize, organize and mobilize others to elect Democrats. The ability to raise funds and friends are both critical to success at the county level.
What's most important to me is that after the elections on Saturday we will have 77 leaders in place who will do everything they can to insure that the nominees in each of their counties are supported and that they are putting together teams of Democrats to help us win the White House, to regain a true majority in the State Senate, to create a new Democratic majority in the State House and to add to our numbers in Congress.
If you are running, please feel free to make an announcement here.
