Forrester Elected to DNC Executive Committee

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chip Forrester, the chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party, accepted a larger role in the national Democratic Party Friday with his election to a governing body with national influence.

Forrester will serve a term on the Democratic National Committee’s Executive Committee, the policy-making arm and governing body of the national party.

Forrester was elected unanimously to the DNC Executive Committee at a meeting of the Association of State Democratic Chairs. He will serve as that group’s Southern Chair on the DNC Executive Committee and will work as a representative for the region.

The new role will give Tennessee a more powerful voice in national affairs and policy decisions, particularly during the upcoming 2012 election.

“I am honored to have the unanimous support of my colleagues, other state chairs and vice chairs, who have expressed their confidence in me by electing me to this important national position on our party’s Executive Committee,” Forrester said. “I have promised them that I will faithfully ensure that state parties are heard and their needs addressed at DNC Executive Committee meetings.”
