30 Days and Counting

Not long JAB highlighted the low light of a Dan Ramos speech. Today, Just Another Blog highlights Carla Vela.

She has declared her principal focus is to empower the County Executive Committee and the minority community in San Antonio. Her platform is being a respected leader in the county party, reforming the local party structure, creating a unified and cohesive Democratic Party, supporting GOTV for all Democratic candidates in the county.

This is a platform to get behind. The old paradox in San Antonio is the money for the party is in the south and the votes are all in the north. Vela seems to be aware of this and knows she cannot tackle it herself, but intends to listen to and recruit new precinct chairs.

She has the backing of long time activist and leaders like Jamie Lewis, Charles Tucker, Judy Hall, Former Party Chair Gabe Quintanilla, SDEC members Zada True-Courage and Ann Marie Schroeder, Sally Bolster, Gail Beagle, and many more.

Her platform is impressive and well thought out and her endorses are equally notable. With only one month until Bexar County has a new chair it is time to take note of those who want to lead and those who want to empower the county to make change. The latter should be our county chair.
