It's been awhile since I've been active at the County Level, but there are some names there familiar even to an old-timer like me, along with an encouraging number of new ones.
Among the familiar, Javier Valdez was chair of the 43rd while I was chair of the 32nd LD, and has been a great deal since. I suspect he doesn't know what an inspiration he has been to how many Democrats, young and old, over the years. A special shout out to you, Javier. Congratulations and thanks for your continued service.
