Picture of President Ken Martin

I am honored to have been elected by my peers to serve in this position. The role of president of the ASDC and Vice Chair of the DNC allows me to play a unique part in the future of my Party.

In working closely with State Party Chairs from across the country, I know that we can accomplish a great deal including electing Democrats at every level of government, being a voice for those who feel they aren’t heard, and growing our Party and encouraging participation from people from all walks of life. As long as we have a society where everyone doesn’t have the same opportunities to succeed, our work is not done. Thankfully, I know that Democrats are not afraid of a little hard work.

There is no doubt in my mind that the battle during the Trump Administration will be difficult. But we are lucky to have great Progressive leaders like Chairman Tom Perez and Deputy Chairman Keith Ellison guiding the way. I look forward to working with my fellow State Party Chairs and our Party leadership as we tackle the challenges ahead.
