Chair Message 01.05.2015
New Year Resolve.
A Message from the Chair

With 2014 in our rearview mirror, Democrats now look down the road toward 2015 and 2016 ahead.

Together, we will start building our Democratic Party in 2015 and outline a winning strategy for 2016.

Much of this work will be done by a new Executive Committee whose officers will be elected at the 2015 Organizing Convention (April 11). Also elected at the Organizing Convention are Legislative District Officers and most County Caucus Officers. We will be announcing the filing process toward the end of January and will be posting it HERE.

Hopefully one of your New Year's resolutions was to get more involved and engaged in the Democratic Party. If so, we have plenty of opportunities to get involved.

January 10: The County Party's Outreach Committee (County Caucus leaders) will be hosting an advocacy training to prepare for the 2015 legislative session. Click HERE for details.

January 29: The County Party's Grassroots Committee will meet to prepare recommendations for the 2016 election to present to the next Executive Committee. Any Democrat can join the Grassroots Committee and you can find out more about all our County Party work groups HERE.

Of course, a great New Year's Resolution every Democrat should consider is joining the County's Blue Army. For just $5 or $10 each month, you can contribute to the County Party and build a stronger Democratic Party in Salt Lake County.

In any case, here's to a new year of resolve for Democrats! Moving Forward Together,
Richard Jaramillo, Chair
Salt Lake County Democratic Party
