Due to the relocation of my family to Denmark this summer, I must announce that I will step down as Chair of the Hamburg Chapter of DA Germany. I, therefore, call for a special election of chapter chair to lead the Democrats Abroad Hamburg chapter through the very important 2020 election and serve out the rest of this term. I am so glad to have gotten to know so many of you over the last three years and I have been honored to serve as your chapter chair these last few months. I thank you all for your friendship, encouragement, and support. This is an amazing, welcoming, caring, and active community that I know will continue to grow and do great things. Even though I will no longer be a part of DA Germany-Hamburg, I will remain active in Democrats Abroad. I wish you nothing but the best and I am sure we will meet again.
