Over the last year, the Alicante chapter was extremely busy getting out the vote. From global phone banking to our “Why I Vote” member-stories, we kept the candle burning at both ends. We assembled Our Voices, Our Future media platforms, to reach out to younger generations. Both campaigns were used to create digital ads to bolster membership and get out the vote. Our members donated to Democrats Abroad and to campaigns across the US.
On June 12, 2021 the Alicante chapter elected a new executive committee formed by Daniel Garcia (chair), Diane Longo (vice chair), Tammy Teschner (secretary), and Brett Spector (treasurer) [click to expand]. The new committee will partner with DA Global to implement our organization’s worldwide goals and objectives. The committee is excited to move forward and determined to increase membership. We plan to create and/or assist with future get-out-the-vote campaigns! The goal for next year’s midterm election is to improve our Democratic majority in the House and Senate, in order to pass meaningful legislation and support the Biden–Harris administration.
IT'S TIME FOR YOUR 2021 DA ALICANTE CHAPTER ELECTION AND
It’s time to vote for your DA Alicante (DAA) 2021-2023 Executive Committee! Voting for your leadership here is just as important as in the US. Our chapter depends on the participation of our members and we need your vote!
The candidates running for office understand how important our chapter is for getting out the vote, keeping you informed and engaged! They also know that every vote counts in the US and abroad! Midterms are around the corner and we need to elect chapter officials that can adapt easily and hit the ground running. As a chapter we need to help and support DA Spain, DA Global, the DNC and the Biden-Harris administration! The Democratic party depends on political engagement of our members as we renew our group for the continuous fight for a better USA.
