Whereas, since 2008, Democrats have lost 1,034 legislative seats and Republicans now control 3/5 of governorships, and
Whereas, we need a Democratic National Committee Chair who will rebuild local parties and grow new leaders, and
Whereas, Keith Ellison, candidate for DNC Chair, stated: “We must energize Democratic activists across the country and give them the tools to build the Party from the bottom up. Beyond a 50-state strategy, we need a 3,143-county strategy.”
Therefore, be it Resolved that the La Crosse County Democratic Party encourages our Wisconsin DNC representatives to vote for Keith Ellison for Chair of the DNC.
