Immediately following the chair election, a new vice-chair was elected. Don Holtvoigt shared, “It would be my intent to partner with the committee chair in forwarding the goals of the Mercer County Democratic Party, and to serve as another public face for all members of the Executive Committee. I am committed to the ideology of the Democratic Party and would, to the best of my ability, work to promote those concepts in Mercer County and beyond. A lifelong Democrat, I have spent a good deal of that life working on various political campaigns and serving in volunteer leadership positions.”
The new leadership team has set forth goals including increasing active membership, local awareness, and inclusiveness in our local community. Both agree that many citizens are disengaging with the Republican Party in lieu of the past election and events of January 6th and hope that the Mercer County Democrats can be their new political home.
