I just wanted to take a moment to wish you a Merry Christmas and to say thank you to all who were involved with this year’s campaign. Together, we fought hard for our candidates. We succeeded in gaining majorities in St. Paul, Washington DC., and won the White House! It is something that we should all feel proud of and very good about.
I also wanted to update you on a couple of things. First I would like to thank our Chair Roger Crawford for his service to our party and this organization for the last 4 years. He played a major role in the success of this election and in the continued growth of our organization. Chairman Crawford announced his intention to step down before the end of the year and asked if I would take his place for the remainder of his term. I agreed. I will be chairing and leading our organization until the county convention in February. Until that time please feel free to contact me with any questions or issues that you would like to discuss.
Finally, I’d like to introduce Carla Skipper. She will be replacing me as vice-chair. Carla brings a fresh perspective to our organization and I am honored that she is willing to serve. I’m excited to see what we can get accomplished.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Seth Wellnitz, Chair
