What do you want to see from the Party? What do you care most about that you want to see the Party lead on? When you register, feel free to drop a question you’d like to ask a candidate in the form. We’ll be collecting questions to ask during the forum, but there will also be a Q&A afterwards for further questions.
CDP Chairs are elected by Party delegates: ⅓ of whom are elected officials, ⅓ are those appointed by elected officials, and ⅓ are the delegates we elected in the ADEMS. Electing grassroots leaders as delegates ensures the Party represents more of us and increases community influence on who gets elected as Party chair. So as you learn about the candidates, be sure to reach out to your elected officials and Assembly District Delegates to let them know what you care about and who you think the next Party Chair should be.
