2019 Biennial Reorganization (ReOrg) of the Democratic Party of Denver

Saturday, February 09, 2019

South High School
1700 E. Louisiana Ave, Denver 80210

Registration begins at noon
The meeting runs from 1:00pm - 4:45pm

During February of each odd-numbered year, the DPoD undergoes a reorganization,  in which all elected positions in the county party (with the exception of PCPs, who are elected at caucus) are up for election/re-election to a 2-year term. This includes the 4 county officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer), the officers of each House sub-district (Captain, Co-Captain, and appointed Finance Chair), and the officers of each House and Senate District (Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary).

In addition, members are elected or appointed to a variety of County-wide committees, as well as the State Executive and State Central committees.

You don’t need to be a PCP or other member of the County Central Committee to run for these positions. You do need to be a registered Democrat in the relevant district or sub-district. You can find your Senate District, House District, and House Sub-district on our precinct finder.

Only members of the Democratic Party of Denver Central Committee can vote at ReOrg.

The currently announced candidates for County Party offices are:

  • Chair:  Melissa Johnsen
  • Vice-Chair:
    • Dr. Kari Bell
    • Marc Kamin
  • Secretary: Jarrod Munger
  • Treasurer: Jon Mesick

Anyone else who is interested in running for a County officer position should email a statement of their intent to run, to Mike Cerbo at [email protected] .  For anyone who notifies the Chair at least 21 days before ReOrg (by January 19, 2019) that they intend to run for a County office, the County Party will send out a 1-page statement/flyer (that you provide) about your candidacy when we send the official call to ReOrg. For anyone who notifies the Chair at least 7 days before ReOrg (by Feb 2, 2019), your name will appear as a candidate for County office on the printed ballot. We also accept nominations from the floor during ReOrg.
