Francine Busby won a second two-year term as Chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party on Tuesday, outlining plans for the organization and progress for local Democrats in a high-energy, high-turnout 2015-2016 campaign cycle. Reelected unopposed at a Central Committee meeting after one other declared candidate withdrew in the interest of Party unity, she embraced the call to ramp up the the organization's communications, policy advocacy, and grassroots organizing efforts.
“Ultimately, the observed ballot count did not change the outcome," said County Democratic Party Chair Francine Busby. "But during that process, we were deeply concerned to see the Registrar of Voters refuse to open numerous legitimate ballots due to minor technicalities. The stakes are much greater than a single race: this is about our Constitutional right as Americans. The voters of San Diego County deserve better.”
