Common Sense, Common Ground

From Leslie…

We are bloody, but unbowed. Wyoming Democrats suffered terrible losses at every level in the recent tilt to the right in our state and country. Let’s not forget the cyclical nature of these events in recent years. Our time will come again and we must begin preparing now.

Already, we are working to strengthen the state party and refine its message. Elections for officers in each county will occur in March. Elections for state leadership of the party will occur in April. If there is anyone out there who wants to be involved, please take a look at the by-laws of the party at http://www.wyomingdemocrats.com (under the About Us tab.) Every precinct needs at least one precinct committeeman and committeewoman and these are the people who make up the County Central Committee in each county and they are the ones who elect county officers. If you’re not a precinct person now, but would like to be one, you can be appointed by the current county chair.

As for me personally, I cannot thank you all enough for your support. It was a great honor to be the Democratic nominee for Governor and you all know that I gave it my very best effort. It was a grand adventure and I have no regrets.

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or thoughts you may have. Remember, surrender is not an option!
