First, many thanks to everyone who participated in our spring convention last month. And a special thank you to those of you that volunteered to run for leadership positions. Members like you are what make the Michigan Democratic Party strong.
I also want to thank you for entrusting me to serve as your chair for the next 2 years. I am so proud of all of you and proud to stand alongside you. And make no mistake, while we just finished one major battle in 2020, these battles will keep coming. And as chair of the Michigan Democratic Party, we will fight these battles together.
While we had incredible victories in 2020 by winning the Presidency, returning Gary Peters to the US Senate, and electing a progressive majority on the State Supreme Court, we are not going to miraculously become a more tolerant, more generous, and more welcoming democracy. We still have a lot of work to do.
For us to win in 2022, I need all Democrats in Michigan to stay engaged. We need to keep strengthening the party, building support, talking to voters, and holding those damn Republicans accountable every time they choose to tow the GOP line. And together we re-elect “those women from Michigan,” increase our majority in the US House, and finally take back the State House and Senate.
Thank you again. It has been an honor to serve as your chair for the past 2 years and I am looking forward to all the good work we will do together.
For the first time in Michigan's history, the redrawing of district lines is in the hands of the citizens. In 2018, Michiganders voted for the Independent Citizen Redistricting Commission (ICRC). The Commission consists of four members of the Democratic Party, four members of the GOP, and 5 unaffiliated voters - all are tasked with drawing new district lines for political offices. This process is a step towards eliminating gerrymandering, which has plagued elections in Michigan for years.
The ICRC gives citizens the opportunity to voice their concerns directly to the commission through submitting public comments. We are currently making sure the commission is aware of communities of interest. If there are communities of interest the ICRC should be aware of, or if there is something that you would like the commission to pay attention to, let your voice be heard. Email thoughts and concerns to email@example.com.
For more information or further questions please contact Nicholas Barnes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
