Tennessean Elected to DNC Executive Committee

Press release from the Tennessee Democratic Party; August 29, 2013:

Will T. Cheek is only Tennessean on DNC Executive Committee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee will have a strong voice on the national Democratic Party’s top committee.

Will T. Cheek was elected last week to serve a second four-year term on the Democratic National Committee’s Executive Committee, the party’s top board of directors.

“From attacks on voters’ rights and our democracy to the never-ending assault on working families and women’s health care, the South has long been a hotbed for extreme legislation,” Cheek said. “As we work to protect and expand opportunity for working and middle class families, my goal is to make the challenges we face in the South a top priority for national Democratic Party leaders.”

Cheek, a member of the Democratic National Committee and its Southern Caucus, was re-elected to represent the Southern Caucus on the party’s top governing board at a meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz.
