DWC STEERING COMMITTEE ELECTIONS:
Per the Bylaws the DWC Steering Commitee has selected two candidates to fill out our roster subsequent to confirmation by a vote of the membership. In Bridget Anderson and Ilana Stonebreaker we think we have found two young women who are passionate about our mission and can make a valuable contribution to our organization. You will get a chance to meet Bridget and Ilana at our Friday Breakfast Zoom. We’ll have time for brief introductions and a short Q&A before you vote.
Because we’re still meeting virtually we’ll hold this special election vote by email. All members in good standing will also receive a ballot and instructions in addition to this email. If you don’t get a ballot by this afternoon, but feel that you should have, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Votes will need to be submitted by midnight on Friday night to count.
Below are short statements and head shots for each candidate.
I’ve been engaged in local and statewide politics all my life. I have over six years of work in the Indiana Statehouse and six years working with statewide and national non-profits. I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in political science and am inspired by civic engagement as a means to improve lives. I’m a cheerleader for access, equity, and empowerment and believe that together people can solve problems. I am currently the Director at Patronicity, a crowdfunding platform designed to support creative placemaking projects around the country. It's powerful work that empowers hyper-local community development and investment. I'm a resident of rural Greene County where I live with my husband Christopher and my beautiful dog Gertie.
Ilana Stonebraker moved to Monroe County in January 2020 to become the Head of Business/SPEA Library at Indiana University. In 2018, she successfully ran for Tippecanoe County Council, becoming one of two first democrats elected to county council there in 23 years. She serves as a mentor to candidates through Run for Something and is passionate about supporting Millennial candidates.
THE INDIANA DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION:
This has been an unusual year and this year’s Indiana Democratic Party’s State Convention will be no exception. Because the Convention will be held virtually, everyone will get to be a fly on the wall in ways that they have not in the past.
The Ninth District Democrats have sent out a list of activities that you can view or participate in. Highlights include a “Let’s Turn Social Media Blue!” themed campaign which starts today… a televised 1/2 hour “State Convention Preview Show” at 5:30pm tonight – which you can watch online or on WISH TV, “Convention Conversations”, a “Pre-Convention Virtual Reception”, and Convention Day Events.Full details at https://mailchi.mp/916f2fce4462/djvgy1abp0-3834077
