Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price Delivers Letter of Resignation

Source: Iowa Democratic Party Press Release.

Dear Members of the Iowa Democratic Party State Central Committee,

Serving as Chair of the Iowa Democratic Party has been one of the greatest honors of my life.

When I took over this party, we were still reeling from a bruising 2016 election cycle. Many people locally and across the country believed that Democrats in Iowa were dead, and that we would never see victories again.

Over the course of 2017 and 2018, I was so proud to work with the members of our state central committee, our county chairs, activists, and volunteers to build real momentum across the state. In the end, we proved the naysayers wrong by flipping seven seats in the Iowa House, winning three statewide seats, and winning three of four congressional seats – sending the first women from Iowa to the House in the process.

While we could have rested on our laurels, we got back to work. Over the last 15 months, Democrats across the state came together to build out our 2020 caucuses. Our amazing staff fanned out across the state to build infrastructure in all 99 counties – even in places where local parties had gone dormant or didn’t exist at all. We worked to implement sweeping changes to our process that increased accessibility and participation for Iowans across the state and the globe...

1. As an Iowan and long-time caucus-goer, YAYYYYY!

The IDP has lost it's compass. It has become an urban-centric institution buffeted by countless entities seeking to feed at the trough and profit. In the wake of centralization, the center of the organization has grown increasingly distant from the peripheral county organizations; in turn, this has alienated and weakened a great many of the party's county organizations.

At a time when most Democrats are aware of the perils of technology, e.g., incursion, manipulation, security, trust, etc., the genius of the organization chose to cast its lot with an obscure tech startup named "Shadow, Inc."

Would you do important biz with a firm that goes by that name?

Good riddance, Troy Price! Holy %#@*.

RANT...end.

2. This is a sad but necessary outcome

Of a bungled caucus. The buck stops there.

6. WOW. Someone actually took responsibility. How quaint.

OF COURSE it was a democrat.

He did the right thing. That was a cluster fuck (is that one or two words?) of major proportions. SOMEONE's head had to roll.
