MICHAEL GOLOJUCH JR.

I’m running for Party Chair because I care about our Party and our values. I have the experience, inside our Party and out, to help advance them.

 

Look at the issues I’ve fought for, and continue to fight for, to get to know me better.

 

We need a person who has the know how to use the momentum from State Convention to keep our Party moving forward, and I’m the right person, at the right time, for this challenge.

 

We need to empower all of our members so we can collaborate together to make our Platform a reality.

 

We achieve this through: 

  • Engaging with our members, where they are and what interests them.

  • Embracing technology, without losing the personal interaction, to better inform and engage with our fellow Democrats.

  • Utilizing the amazingly talented members in our Party.

  • Providing opportunities for our members to shine.

  • Standing up ALL of our Party’s Committees.

 

I’m asking you to vote for me for Party Chair and I’m looking forward to what we can do together.

 

In Solidarity,

 

Michael Golojuch, Jr.
