Exciting news! Congresswoman Deb Haaland of New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District will be our keynote speaker!
Elected in 2018, Congresswoman Haaland made history this November by being one of the first Native American women to ever be elected to Congress. As a first-year lawmaker, the Congresswoman has already been elected by her colleagues to serve as the “Freshman Class Representative” to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, the House Democratic Region VI Whip (which covers Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona), was appointed as Deputy Whip for the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and is one of three co-Chairs for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) 2020 Women LEAD initiative.
AND
Congressman Adam Schiff of California’s 28th Congressional District will be the Special Guest!
As Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Congressman Schiff has gained national notoriety for his expertise on foreign affairs and national security. Congressman Schiff was elected in 2000, and in addition to serving as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, co-founded the bipartisan Congressional Caucus for Freedom of the Press, and co-chairs a bipartisan study group on nuclear security.

House and Senate District officers – Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary - and SubDistrict officers – Captain and Co-Captain are elected. Each SubDistrict also selects a Finance Chair to be appointed.

In addition, SubDistrict representatives to a host of DPOD committees are selected – including Rules, Credentials, Platform, Permanent Organization, Fund-Raising, Public Policy, Diversity and Outreach, Technology, and Get-Out-The-Vote – essentially all of the moving parts of the Democratic Party of Denver. SubDistrict representatives to various State party committees are also selected. All crucially important as we move toward the 2020 general election – and a BLUE TSUNAMI!

Any REGISTERED DEMOCRAT is eligible to fill any of the roles in their respective SubDistrict.
