From the County Chair – Calling all Sandoval Democrats to our county party elections

by | Feb 4, 2023 | Message from the Chair

By Alex Piland, Chair, DPSC

Be a party animal!

Do you know why there is no Second Saturday luncheon in March? It’s time for our county party elections.

Ward meetings are held first to determine your precinct and ward leaders. These meetings will be on March 11, 12, and 18. Each precinct will also elect County Central Committee (CCC) members.

The CCC will meet on March 25 to elect Sandoval County party leaders including the Chair, First Vice-Chair, Second Vice-Chair and State Central Committee (SCC) members.

The SCC meeting will be held on April 22 to elect the officers of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.

Save these dates because we need you to participate and vote! You must be a registered Democrat for at least thirty days to vote in any of these elections. You will also need to know your precinct and ward to participate.

To confirm your precinct and ward, visit this website: https://voterportal.servis.sos.

Once you have determined your precinct, go to the following link https://sandovaldemocrats.or g/wards-and-precincts/ to find your ward. You will see ward maps with the precincts listed after each map and a description.

We will publish links to register for these meetings as soon as we receive them from DPNM. Be sure to register as soon as possible as our credentialing team will need to vet people who plan on voting.

We need as many people as possible to attend our online precinct/ward and CCC meetings. Please consider volunteering to run for any of these positions. I know I preach to the choir when I say that one of our fundamental values as Democrats is fair and open elections. Our system works when people— good people like you— volunteer to help make our party stronger.

Democrats deliver!

Democrats really turned out for our Martin Luther King Day of Service to help Annunciation House’s infants at the border. Sandoval Democrats donated 70 packages of wipes, 20 containers of formula, 22 plastic baby bottles, 8 bottle brushes, and 2,370 diapers! Well done, Democrats! Your generosity is incredible. Thank you for helping.

The Sandoval County Federation of Democratic Women continues to pack weekend lunch kits for hungry children. If you are interested in helping, please contact me at I will happily get you connected to this group.

Attend our events!

February’s First Friday will host our two Democratic County Commissioners, Kathy Bruch, and the newly appointed District 5 Commissioner, Josh Jones. Join us at the Range Cafe in the Town of Bernalillo to see what triumphs and challenges face our commissioners!

At press, we have not yet confirmed our guest speaker for Second Saturday; however, M’Tucci’s in Rio Rancho is excited to offer us a buffet-style lunch.

Our Last Saturday of the month coffee get-together in January was a success, so we will have it again on  February 25. This is a social event with no program. I hope to see you there.

This year is off to a positive start, and I thank all of you!
