BOSTON-(September 16, 2003)-Massachusetts Democratic Future, the Commonwealth's local chapter of the Young Democrats of America (YDA), today announced that board member Clinton Bench was elected to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at the 2003 YDA national convention.
Bench formerly served as the national secretary for YDA and was elected to the office of Democratic National Committeeman at the organization's 2003 convention in Buffalo, NY on August 15, 2003.He has also served as chair of YDA's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Caucus, and for two terms as chair of Massachusetts Democratic Future (MDF).
"DNC Committeeman is one of the most prestigious offices in YDA because of the opportunity it provides to meet with Democratic party leaders on a national level.I can't think of anyone who is more deserving of this experience or more qualified to represent issues important to young voters than Clinton Bench," said Jonathan Chines, current Chair of MDF."I am pleased that Clinton was elected to this office and I think he will be able to serve the party well, particularly in helping to welcome other DNC members and young delegates to Boston for the 2004 convention," Chines continued.
Bench is part of a diverse new team of YDA leaders representing many racial and ethnic groups and all regions of the United States who were elected at the 2003 convention.Under the leadership of new YDA president Chris Gallaway of Kansas, they plan to restructure the way that the national organization provides support to its state and local chapters by developing fundraising partnerships and an expanded program to place youth coordinators in key states for the 2004 elections.Over 30 Massachusetts delegates attended the YDA convention, making the Commonwealth's delegation the sixth largest at the event, and turning in a unanimous vote for Bench's run for the DNC Committeeman position.
"Clinton has done a lot to support political activism among young people in Massachusetts and nationally and to support the ideals of the Democratic party, and he will be able to do even more to promote youth involvement in the party in his new role," said Evan Rauch, Northeast Regional Director for YDA.
