State Officers Elected 

On March 9, Colorado Democrats from all across the state came together for our state Democratic Party re-organization (“re-org”) that takes place every two years. The purpose? To elect party officers for the state Democratic Party for the next two year term. In addition to the original five positions of Chair, 1st Vice-Chair, 2nd Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, the Central Committee voted to allow the state party to create four new officers positions. They are two Vice Chairs of Outreach, one Vice Chair of Rural Outreach, and one Vice Chair of Communications.

These ten officers for the state Democratic Party will be tasked with working with our county and local parties to help register and turn out voters, and will be vital in our mission to defeat Donald Trump and Cory Gardner in 2020. Please say hello to the CDP’s officers!
