Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Marcel Groen was elected to the Democratic National Committee’s Executive Committee over the weekend.
“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,” Groen said.
The Executive Committee is made of about 70 members, and is in charge of the day-to-day operations of the party. Groen received the most votes to fill the Eastern Regional Caucus’ two seats for males on the Executive Committee. The Eastern Regional Caucus is made up of the states from Maine to D.C.
“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,” Groen said.
