I will be voting for Mike Berlon for the next Democratic Party of Georgia Chair
On January 27 I will be voting for Mike Berlon for the next Democratic Party of Georgia Chair.
On his Web site Mike says:
I am more dedicated than ever to building a truly effective statewide organization. I am dedicated to bringing the reach of the Democratic Party of Georgia beyond metro-Atlanta so that we can work effectively in every corner of the state to inspire committed Democrats to get involved as well as to re-brand the Democratic Party so that it resonates with voters, regardless of where they live, and convinces them to identify with the Democratic Party and to vote Democratic.
I am committed to partnering with counties around the state to open Democratic Party of Georgia Regional Satellite Offices. Having a physical presence around the state will allow the Democratic Party to engage with county groups, other progressive groups, and elected officials at all levels to build true coalitions, help implement effective marketing strategies, develop field plans, and implement GOTV activities in order to strengthen and build the Democratic Party and to elect Democrats up and down the ballot throughout Georgia.
Immediately after being elected, I pledge to begin a statewide Listening Tour where I will travel the entire state of Georgia meeting with local leaders, elected officials, and activists to gain their input and insight on the future of the Democratic Party as well as what is most needed by each of them to strengthen the Party in their areas. I pledge to take this feedback back with me and make sure that it is incorporated into the DPG strategic plan. I plan to implement a series of quarterly conference calls so this dialogue may continue and we can ensure that the work of the Democratic Party is moving forward.
In order to help facilitate communication by County Parties, to build an online presence for the Democratic Party of Georgia, and to streamline our online communications, I plan to revamp the Democratic Party of Georgia’s website and to provide County Party websites for each interested County Party. While we work to create parties in counties where no party currently exists, local websites will provide information on other ways to get involved with Democrats in neighboring counties and with the State Party.
