Announcing 7 Committee Chairs
The following was first announced December 15th, 2020, and revised December 24th, 2020, on the basis of our bylaws being unclear as to whether a non-DEC member could serve on a committee. Out of an abundance of caution, on December 23rd, 2020, Mr. Matt Mazer resigned as Membership and Credentials Committee Chair and Mr. Kirk Hall stepped up to Chair this committee, and Ms. Elizabeth Atlee Hall resigned as Outreach Committee Chair. We do have the option of appointing them to the DEC by floor vote at our January 25th, 2021 meeting.
I am pleased to announce that the following individuals have agreed to serve as chairs of 6 of our 12 standing committees, as defined by our most recent bylaws (2003):
Mr. Jim Gangitano, Rules Committee Chair
Mr. Scott Cleary, Education Committee Chair
Ms. Telcyn Smith, Audit Committee Chair
Mr. Clifton Roby, Diversity and Inclusion Committee Chair
Mr. William Bliss, Information Technology Committee Chair
Mr. Kirk Hall, Membership and Credentials Committee Chair
In addition, Ms. Mary Thomas will serve as Voter Registration Committee Chair.
Thank you for your service and your diligent efforts. As we go forward during this holiday break, we will be working to recruit members for these and other committees, to organize better, and to build systems for engagement and outreach efforts in 2021 and beyond.
We are planning to overhaul our website including new tools and pages to learn about and join Volusia County’s Democratic clubs and caucuses, to learn about being an appointed precinct captain and help our approximately 150 elected precinct captains succeed, and more.
