Congratulations to new MCDP Chair, Mark Fraley, and new MCDP Treasurer, Todd Lare, elected in this evening's caucus to serve the Party. Neither are strangers to headquarters, and we are forging ahead with the new configuration of leadership to focus not only on 2015, but on the years ahead. We thank both Mark and Todd for stepping forward, and know that MCDP is in good hands.
Our deepest gratitude to outgoing Chair Trent Deckard, and Treasurer Anthony Smith, for their service and dedication in the past two years. Both have exciting new developments in their lives to focus on, and we wish them the very best. This transition will be nearly seamless due to the attentiveness of both to this organization. We'll miss you, but know you will remain dedicated Democrats and supporters!
