2019 leadership

On a cold wintery day at the end of January 2019, Quad Cities Democratic Socialists of America members made their way to the basement meeting room of the Davenport Library to discuss goals for the upcoming year and elect new officers for the local chapter. The meeting started off with introductions as we welcomed Christoffer Lammer-Heindel and Christine Darr visiting from the Dubuque DSA Chapter. We also welcomed several prospective members for which this was their first meeting reminding those who are new to consider signing up for automatic monthly dues through which a certain percentage of dues goes to the chapter.

After introductions, the chapter meeting moved on to nominations for the executive board. After compiling the nominations from the nominating committee and taking nominations from the floor we ended up with five members nominated for the five positions. Nominations were as follows: AJ Reed for Chair, Kelly Kruse for Vice-Chair, Amber Rajcevich for Secretary, Dan Foley for Treasurer, and James Blue for Sergeant at Arms. Being that only one person was nominated for each position a motion was made to accept the positions by acclimation to which a friendly amendment was made to postpone voting until after several agenda items had been addressed.[2]

Council run


In April 2017, Quad Cities Democratic Socialists of America member Dylan Parker was elected to the Rock Island City Council, 5th Ward aAlderman, with Democratic Socialists of America support.
