The Williamson County Democratic Party (WCDP) held its biennial reorganization convention Saturday, electing new party leadership and discussing strategy for how local Democrats can follow in the footsteps of neighboring Georgia and help turn Tennessee blue.
Dr. Jenn Foley is the newly elected party chair and is a current member of the Tennessee Democratic Party executive committee. A former candidate for the Tennessee State Legislature, she said she would like to see the WCDP produce more elected leaders and will focus her efforts on recruiting and fundraising to support more local candidates.
“I think we have a lot of potential here in Williamson County and in the state as Democrats,” Foley said. “It’s a long road sometimes, but I truly believe that in the coming years we’re going to secure major victories locally and statewide, and I look forward to helping create the structure to make that happen.”
Joining Foley on the party’s executive committee are Courtenay Rogers as vice chair, Grant Marsh as secretary and Robert Britton as treasurer. Additionally, Wanda Bruce Graham was tapped to represent the Williamson County Democratic Women while Molly Volker will represent the Williamson County Young Democrats. Two representatives from each of Williamson County’s 12 districts were also selected as district captains.
“Just as those who came before us, the new leadership team is united in our commitment to listening to our communities, investing in our grassroots, embracing our diverse voices, and continuing our tradition of being the party of the people,” Foley said.
