PA Dems Make History with New Leadership
History was made on Saturday, June 18, as the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee met in Gettysburg for their quadrennial reorganization meeting. Sharif Street, elected as Chair of the PA Dems, becomes the first person of color to hold that position. Street, who represents the 3rd District in the PA Senate, served as vice-chair of the party under Nancy Patton Mills who did not seek reelection. Also elected were Peggy Grove (Dauphin County) as Vice-Chair, Scott Conklin (Centre County) as Treasurer, and Jacqueline Smith-Bennett (Cumberland County) was appointed Secretary. Sandy Wolfe (Cumberland County) was elected to serve on PA Dems Executive Committee as a representative from the South Central Caucus.
Elections were also held for officers for the PA Dems 7 regional caucuses. Cumberland County belongs to the South Central Caucus along with Adams, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon, Perry, and York county. Rogette Harris, chair of the Dauphin County Democratic Committee was elected as Chair of our South Central caucus. Also elected were Ryan Supler (York County) as Vice-Chair and Jacqueline Smith-Bennett (Cumberland County) as Treasurer.
Thanks to all of our PA Dems State Committee Members for serving. We look forward to hearing more from this new team and their plans to get Dems to a win in November. Stay tuned!
