Last evening at the Prince William County Democratic Committee (PWCDC) reorganization caucus/election of officers, Harry Wiggins was elected chair over the previous chair Bruce Roemmelt. All told, 106 new members of the 7 MD committees from their respective Dec. reorganization caucuses/officer elections attended this county committee caucus. This was the first time in recent memory (at least the past decade) that there has been a contested chair election, so it was a new experience for almost all the current membership including both Harry and Bruce.
Harry knows he has taken on “more than a full time job” (his words in quotes) and a daunting set of party rebuilding and related tasks (my words), and stated that he will need complete support and full participation by all the MD chairs and committee general membership.
More details will come soon from the new chair in the form of PWCDC web site updates, including appointment of PWCDC west end and east end co-chairs of at least two committees. I expect some major changes to be put in place early, and addressed in detail by the new chair at the Feb. Steering Committee meeting (2nd Tues.) and at the Feb. PWCDC general membership meeting (4th Thurs.).
Stay tuned. A lot of news from PWC will be coming soon.
