His Email to Committee Members
|June 18, 2022|
Committee Members and Friends,
After considerable thought over the past few months, I have decided to step down as the Saratoga County Democratic Committee Chair.
During my term as Chair, now at almost 11 years to the date, I have had the pleasure to work with so many people who stand up for the tremendous values our party stands for, from elected officials, candidates, and committee members to volunteers.
The County turns further from red to blue every year. We now have an Assembly district based in our county with a tremendous Democratic representative in Carrie Woerner; an excellent Congressional representative who represents most of the County and who will represent the whole county starting next year in Paul Tonko; and a Senate District covering our whole county which was won by President Biden by approximately 9 percent. We have many exceptional candidates this year, including candidates for DA, 112th Assembly, State Supreme Court, and hopefully for the brand-new Family Court seat. In addition, Assemblymember John McDonald and the complete statewide slate of Democratic candidates seeking election and re-election will add to our successes.
I want to thank each one of you for the assistance and guidance over the years. Without all of you, none of this would be possible.
I will be working with the Executive Committee to ensure a smooth transition and provide any assistance.
|Todd M. Kerner, Chair|
