By Jim Gangitano, Volusia County State Committeeman January 2017
It Has Been Called the Most Interesting Election Since November.
I ran for election in December to be Volusia County’s new Democratic State Committeeman to bring Florida Democratic Party (FDP) resources to Volusia County and improve the FDP. Since then, my resolve to be a catalyst for FDP change has only strengthened. I am very pleased to be working with my colleague and friend, State Committeewoman Joan Lane, to advance our shared goals.
Change is needed because Democrats could be winning more elections than we are. Florida is a purple state and Volusia is a purple county. Florida Democrats went into the November election with a slight advantage in voter registration, and in Volusia County, we also went into the election with a slight registration advantage. We also have outstanding Democratic leadership and club members in Volusia County, who organized a small army of volunteers.
