2019 DAJ National Officer Candidate Statements

The 2019 Democrats Abroad Japan (DAJ) Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) would like to share the Candidate Statements submitted by those running for National Officer positions.

The Candidates’ Statements are available as downloadable PDF files at the link below and on the DAJ Facebook community page (http://www.facebook.com/DemocratsAbroadJapan/). Other written and video Candidate Statements may be posted in mid-May.

Voting for National Election positions will commence on May 19 and conclude on June 14. Ballots will be made available to all DAJ members on May 19.

We have an interesting group of people running and hope you will review these statements in preparation for the Sunday, May 19 Meet the Candidates events being held throughout Japan. The NEC will post details about these events on a DAJ MeetUp! event page (forthcoming) and the DAJ Facebook Meet The Candidates Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/274970940051279/

We encourage all DAJ members to join us on May 19 so that you may take an active role in these National Officer elections. It will be a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people and to find out more about the people who will guide us to victory in the 2020 elections.

Events will be held in Kansai, Tokai and Kanto areas. However, even if you are not able to join in person, you may participate online. If you would like to hold a Meet the Candidates Event in your area, please contact the 2019 NEC before May 12 so we will help you get everything organized. Contact the 2019 NEC with any questions at [email protected]

We look forward to an engaging discussion with the candidates on May 19!
