7 Races & Measures 2014 Including PCO Contests PCOs are elected to two year terms – November 2014 to November Term begins upon certification of the General Election.

8 Opportunities in 2014 Organize/run District caucus The best dry run well have before the 2016 presidential caucus/convention cycle. Refocus on our platform/values – why were Democrats Train PCOs & activists early in the year for precinct organizing & GOTV Recruit PCOs throughout the spring PCOs file May 12 – 16, 2014

9 Challenges in is a historic year on the election calendar in that there is not a traditional marquee race to rally around and build our effort out from as a centerpiece. We will need to create our own excitement and rallying points. Helping the 48 th defeat Rodney Tom is one exciting prospective action. PCO Recruitment Recruit PCOs throughout the winter and spring for all of the 46 th LD precincts Resolve vacancies and multiple filings as much as possible before filing week File PCOs in an organized fashion in May Welcome back to PCO Coordinator Michael Lorden
