Fighting For Our Progressive Values
Candidates Make Their Pitch, New Leadership Team Elected
The 5th Congressional District has had a big year, and that was evident at today's convention. For the second year in a row the convention broke previous attendance records. The delegates had the opportunity to hear from all the candidates for state party chair as well as the candidates for first vice chair. A number of issues were discussed including how balloting at the state convention works, the damaging effects of the proposals in Walker's budget, and how we will move our party forward in the coming years.
The delegates also elected new officers for the next two years.
