Message from the Chairs

As we move into 2018, there is a long road ahead of us. In this election year there are many important offices that need to be filled with qualified candidates with integrity. At the same time, we must continue the work of strengthening our county party by connecting with, understanding, and better serving the allies in our community that share our values.

The new executive board members have now taken their place and held their first meeting.  We will continue the work the LCDP has been doing, as well as developing new projects to help build the political will of La Crosse County.

We are looking to focus the vision of the LCDP, develop a strategic plan for the party, and provide greater clarity on our goals and how we will reach them. We are also planning a restructure and consolidation of the committees of our party. There will be many opportunities to get involved and take the lead in these committees, and we will need all of our members to participate if we are going to change La Crosse County, Wisconsin, and our country as a whole.

The 2018 elections are an obvious focal point for the Executive Board this year.  Electing individuals who share our values is just a first step.  But it is also important to keep in mind that politics is a continuous process, not a discreet set of elections.  As citizens in a democracy, we have a responsibility to participate and become actively involved beyond elections.  This is a marathon, not a sprint.
