A Word from Chair Rachel Campbell:
I am so grateful for the support of the Executive Committee and General Assembly in electing me as the new chair of the Hamilton County Democratic Party. I look forward to working with the members of our body, and volunteers and voters across this county, in turning our county blue! We have much work to do, with many open seats and opportunities in the upcoming election cycle. It will take all of us, and I’m looking forward to the work. As you all know, we now have the responsibility of holding primaries for the school board as well, and so I’d like to take this opportunity to remind each of you that we are in full candidate recruitment mode. If you, or anyone you know, would like to run for office, please direct them to me or to our Campaign Chair Chris Anderson.
