County Chair Announces Retirement
The following is a statement from Davis County Democratic Party Chair Brett Garner:
Due to family and job situations that will require a move out of Davis County, I will not run for another term as chair of the Davis County Democratic Party.
I cannot describe in words the deep gratitude I for the blessings and experiences I received from the people of our county and party. I especially want to thank our executive committee, central committee, and our 2012 candidates for their friendship, which I hope will continue. It has been an amazing honor to serve as chair, and if there were a possibility of staying in the county, I would definitely make another run.
However, that does not appear likely, and as all our positions are volunteer and unpaid, I must prioritize my family and job requirements above it.
I do plan on remaining chair for the remainder of my term. As we prepare for our organizing convention in the spring, I look forward to many qualified Democrats seeking to serve as chair and the other executive offices. I welcome anyone considering seeking an office to talk about it with me, and I will fully support our next chair.
