Georgia Democrats To Elect New Chairman January 29

It's a job that no one in their right mind would want.

The job involves putting one's personal life on hold for four years, dealing with a myriad of personalities and egos from 159 counties and raising money in a very hostile, very Republican environment.

What's the job? Chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia.

In a letter sent to members of the state Democratic committee Monday, Georgia Democratic Party chairman Jane Kidd announced that officer elections would be held on January 29, 2011. On that date, Democratic Party activists from across the state will pick a new Chairman, First Vice Chair, Congressional District/County Liaison Vice Chair, Candidate Recruitment Vice Chair, Constituency Group Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. In addition, 13 congressional district chairmen will be chosen.


Every congressional district chair, every vice chair, and the chairman all need to be sent home. Their job was very simple. Elect Democrats. They all failed, and they all need to be shown the door.

Of course, Democrats are slow learners, so don't be surprised if the status quo wins the day next January.
