CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR BERNIE DELEGATES TO THE
NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

On Saturday, June 18, Bernie Sanders delegates from CD1, 2 and 3 were elected to attend the National Democratic Convention in Philadelphia in July. And this past Saturday, June 25, the state at large delegates and PLEO’s were elected. This is a great privilege and honor and we know they will represent New Mexico well. From CD 1 we elected Teva Gabis-Levine, James David (JD) Mathews, and alternate Charles Powell. . Our women delegates elected were Sally-Alice Thompson and Gina Dennis. PLEO’s elected were Eleanor Chavez and John Padilla. At-large female delegates elected were Donna Swanson from Otero County and Kathleen Burke from Albuquerque. Stephen Verchinski from Albuquerque was elected male at-large. We have invited all of our local Bernie delegates to join us at our July meeting so that we can meet them, share their excitement, and have them meet Donna Smith. Names of CD2 and CD3 delegates have not been readily posted for us to share. Hillary Clinton delegates were also elected in separate caucuses, and we congratulate them also. There are 16 Hillary delegates, 14 Bernie delegates, and 9 “Super-delegates”, all of whom at this point have declared for Clinton, which has caused a lot of heartburn in our Feel the Bern ranks, since Bernie won 48.5% of the state vote (to Clinton’s 51.5)
