DPMC Elects New Officers for 2016
Leadership Team Will Work to Restore Values to Our State and Nation
MILWAUKEE –The members of the Democratic Party of Milwaukee County held their biennial election of officers at the Party’s monthly membership meeting on Monday, November 16. The meeting was held at J&B's Blue Ribbon Bar and Grill, 5230 W. Bluemound Road, Milwaukee.
The following members were elected to serve two-year terms:
Chair – Robert Hansen
Vice Chair – Arkesia Jackson
Recording Secretary – Nancy Penn
Corresponding Secretary – Nancy Kaplan
Membership Secretary – Solana Patterson-Ramos
Treasurer – Dawn Martin
“We have a lot at stake in the next couple years,” stated newly-elected Chair Robert Hansen. “Will we have governments that serve the people, or will we continue to be governed by those who serve in order to line their own pockets and fund their campaigns? The future of our state and our nation is one we must secure for future generations. One of justice. One of equality and freedom. One where we raise people up from poverty to ensure that our children and grandchildren can see the bright future that they deserve.
“It is up to every one of us to do the work that's necessary to ensure that our message resonates with voters, and that our candidates at all levels are successful in their efforts to win elected office. We must be successful in educating our friends and neighbors as to why our policies are the policies that allow us all to rise up together to enjoy a better life. We need to be aggressive in standing up for the issues that we all believe in.”
The members would like to thank the Party's outgoing officers –Marlene Ott, Mandela Barnes, Brandon Savage and Karen Kirsch– for their hand work and dedication over the past two years.
The Democratic Party of Milwaukee County is an all-volunteer organization, and serves as the local chapter of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. Democrats value broad prosperity, mutual responsibility, effective government, a better future, and a stronger America. The DPMC meets at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of most months at Burke's Irish Castle, 5328 W. Bluemound Road, Milwaukee. The next meeting will be held Monday, January 18, 2016.
