Rebuilding the Party

"Rebuilding the Democratic Party"...a day-long workshop in Lafayette on January 12, 2007, followed the first grassroots convention in New Orleans in 2005, "Beaucoup Blues," and it was organized by Beaucoup Blues participants Mike Stagg in Lafayette, Vicki Lancaster in Baton Rouge and Deborah Langhoff in New Orleans.  The identified need to fill Party seats with committed democrats was the focus of this event at the Clifton Chenier Center Auditorium, and panel topics included:

  • Revitalizing Parish Executive Committees and the February 9th party seat elections
  • Developing Democratic Media
  • Relevance of the opinions of Louisiana Democrats to Party initiatives
  • Creating a movement within the Democratic State Central Committee to focus on Party-building
