(Former DNC Chairman and Vermont Governor Howard Dean sent this letter to DNC members on February 18th, 2017)
Dear DNC Member,
I want to let you know that I fully support LaToia for DNC Vice Chair and ask you to vote for her next weekend, at the Atlanta meeting. Everyone running for DNC office, this year, is talking about the fifty state strategy. LaToia was on the team that made that happen 12 years ago. A strong DNC infrastructure plays a big role in electing Democrats up and down the ticket. LaToia built that infrastructure.
LaToia Jones is one of the brightest minds I know in politics, working tirelessly on behalf of the party — whether serving in senior roles at the Convention, or helping to further advance labor’s agenda through personal engagement and outreach in local communities. LaToia brings a sense of energy and enthusiasm that would greatly benefit our party and she has the insights to make the next iteration of the fifty state strategy even more impactful.
This is why I am proud to fully endorse LaToia and look forward to seeing her elected as one of the DNC’s next great Vice Chairs.
