Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chair Marcel L. Groen was elected to the Executive Committee of the Democratic National Committee. The Executive Committee consists of approximately 70 people and is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Democratic Party.
Chairman Groen received the most votes for the Eastern Regional Caucus’ two open seats for males on the committee. The Eastern Regional Caucus represents all states from D.C. to Maine, including Pennsylvania.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on the DNC’s Executive Committee, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together as a party,” said Chairman Groen. “In Pennsylvania, we are building our party’s infrastructure and harnessing the grassroots energy from people all across the state who are angry at the direction Donald Trump is taking this country. We are reminding people that Democrats are for growing the middle class, making sure that everyone that works hard can get ahead, and ensuring that everyone can afford to receive health care. I look forward to the prestigious opportunity to continue to build on our successes alongside fellow Democrats as we focus on building the party in 2017, 2018, and beyond.”
