*** FRANCINE BUSBY to RUN For CHAIR of the San Diego County Democratic Party  2013
Part of her Announcement:
After eight years of service, Jess Durfee has decided not to run again for Party Chair. While we will feel the loss of his leadership as Chair, he will continue to serve San Diego, California and the national Party as an elected member of the Democratic National Committee.   After much thought and encouragement over the past year, I have decided to run for Chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party. I have worked closely with Jess and the SDCDP staff, Party leaders, elected officials, candidates and donors.  I have served in many capacities from being a candidate, fundraiser, consultant and volunteer to being elected to as vice-chair, convention delegate.  Through this process, I have built personal relationships with Democrats throughout the county. I encourage you to consider running to be a member of the Central Committee and joining me in the leadership of the San Diego County Democratic Party.  I look forward to serving you and to working with you. Thank you for your continued support, Francine Busby
