The DeKalb County Democratic Committee would like to welcome our new chair, John Jackson. The Committee also would like to thank Lance Hammonds for the contributions he brought to the race.
DeKalb Dems reluctantly accepted the resignation of our chair, Jennifer Young, at our November monthly meeting. Jennifer was a fierce advocate of GOTV efforts and was instrumental in making DeKalb Dems more visible in DeKalb County. We wish Jennifer the best, and we will continue to execute on her vision.
Tonight, we held elections for the State Committee. Congratulations to everyone who will be representing DeKalb County!

The Atlanta Pride Parade is happening on October 14th. We’re lining up on West Peachtree near the Civic Center Marta Station near Ivan Allen. We will be there at 9:30am to secure our spot in Section D. If you get there early, maybe you can do some canvassing in the crowd. 🙂 If you are attending, please make sure you’re there by 11:30 because the parade steps off at noon sharp.
We’re going to have t shirts for sale. If you want to secure yours, place an order by this Friday, September 28th. You can use this form. http://goo.gl/HvRFLM
