Introducing Nathan's Take A viewpoint from the BCDP President
County Party reorganization will be in August, and it is well past time that we make the County Party look, act, and be more representative of the tens of thousands of Democrats who vote while thinking they are alone in a red state. We have little representation from the Black community and no folks who are Asian, Latino/a, nor do we have much diversity in age and gender expression.
As we move forward, we must bring entirely new, diverse voices to the table AND we must listen to them. With the motion last meeting, all prospective individuals have been speaking with me to get a real understanding of the role and responsibilities of a district representative.
The long-term sustainability, growth, and respect in the community depend upon finding voices for change with marketable skillsets that can keep moving us forward. If you know people with a background in Development, Fundraising, Marketing, and Digital Communications, talk to them about becoming active in the party!
