Dallas County Democrats Elect New Leadership

On Monday March 13th the Dallas County Democratic Central Committee elected a new chairperson to lead the county party for the next two years.  Adel’s, Bryce Smith was elected Monday to succeed county chairwoman Vicki Adams, who opted against seeking another two-year term.

“This is the start of a new and exciting chapter for Democrats in Dallas County,” Smith said after his election.  “Dallas county is going to play a significant role in the upcoming midterm election both at the state and federal level!  Smith most recently ran for the Iowa House of Representatives in the 19th District.  “Although my end goal was not achieved [winning] we as Democrats made great strides in turn out, voter registration and fielding good candidates.” Smith stated.

Smith said one of his goals as the new county chair is to unify the party, and he hopes to get local Democrats energized and active in their communities starting as local as the street they live on.

“We’ve got to keep the energy up and growing for the next 18 months,” Smith says, “Being only 25, openly gay, and a small business owner, there is so much at stake, not just for me, but everyone across Dallas county, I refuse to sit on the sidelines and let others take control of my future!”  He said the county party must play a more active role in recruiting and training local candidates, engaging young voters and welcoming those who are new to the county.

Smith’s activism and organizing has followed him since high school, as a student council member, then through college at the University of Northern Iowa where he was also a part of student government, he helped run local and state races through the 2012 and 2014 cycles and most recently ran for the Iowa House and hosted Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at his small business in Adel before the 2016 Caucus.

Smith is joined by vice chair: Mindy Knause, Dave McFarland, Marcia Wanamaker, Secretary: Austin Haywood and Treasurer: Art Behn.
