State Convention is finally here!

Despite the convention contention that we have felt over the past few weeks, the time has come for us to fulfill our delegate duties and vote for our new Executive Committee, Constitution and Bylaw changes, as well as our first new Platform in over eight years—and for those of us in CD3, vote on our nominee for the soon to be unoccupied Jason Chaffetz seat.

I am not asking you to show up just to come and vote for me to be our next State Chair; I want you to show up because this is how we move forward. This Saturday will decide the course of our party for at least the next two years, so participating is imperative.

Whatever the outcome, please know that I am deeply committed to this party, because I am committed to the stewardship of our Democratic family.
