Young Democrats of Mississippi hold Biannual Convention in Rankin County

Young Democrats (2 of which are co-authors for this blog) had an exciting weekend in the backyard of our most conservative friends in the state during the biannual convention at Brandon City Hall.

Congressman Travis Childers speaks to Young Dems of Mississippi

Speakers at the event included a moving invocation by Democratic Trust director Brandon Jones, State Senator David Blount, YDA Veep Louis Elrod, Democratic Party Chair Rickey Cole and Congressman Travis Childers.  By the end of the event, I think I can speak for everyone when I say this group of Young Dems were ready to work.

New officers include everyone’s favorite Democratic foil and Cottonmouth blogger Ryan Brown (Brandon) as the new YDMS president, and the following:

Vice President: Ouida Meruvia (Philadelphia)
Secretary: Hunter Pace (Oxford)
Treasurer: Will Godfrey (Natchez)
National Committeewoman: Sherika Harvey (Kosciusko)
National Committeeman: Sean Higgins (Ole Miss)

William Faulkner once wrote, “To understand the world you must first understand a place like Mississippi,” and when I saw that diverse group come together in to discuss how we can make our state a better place for all, I was personally proud to be a part of it.
