Dear fellow members of the Multnomah County Democrats, I am officially announcing my candidacy to become the next Chair of our county party. My decision to run for this position is because I believe that I can bring a new kind of energy to our efforts. Since joining our party, I was elected a PCP in 2018 and then again in 2020. I was also elected to be the District Leader in House District 52 and became the Chair of our Community Action Committee. I am also a member of our Racial Inclusivity Workgroup and the New Deal Democrats. As your Chair, it will be my duty to serve the interests of our members, to help lay out new paths for civic engagement, and to see grassroots democracy thrive in Multnomah County. I humbly ask for your vote, but more importantly I am asking for your support. It is time to reimagine what it means to be a party for the people. Let us work together to create an atmosphere where all future Democrats will feel welcome, wanted, and needed. www.juliofororegon.com
