The Orange County Committee met on Saturday, December 2, 2017 and selected committee officers for the 2018-1010 term; a slate was proposed and unanimously adopted by the members in attendance, as follows:
Scott Ruffner – Chair
Jim Donovan – Vice Chair
Terry Anderson – Vice Chair
Sandra Smith – Secretary
Wayne Garnett – Treasurer
We are doing some preliminary planning for this coming year, but are looking forward to working hard on the 7th Congressional District race, supporting our eventual nominee. We hope to have all of the Democratic candidates speak to our membership and to build a strong network of volunteers to help with the fall campaign.
At the local level, we’re going to get to work building up a network to help turn out Democrats who come out for the Presidential election, but fall off in other elections. The victory in Alabama’s special election shows how important it is for every single member of our coalition to vote in every single election; the GOP does!
