GLBT representation grows on Davidson Co Democratic Party Exec Committee


Congratulations to Nancy VanReece and Ryan Ellis, two of the newest members of the GLBT community to hold seats on the Davidson County Executive Committee. The two were selected at last night's meeting. VanReece serves as the District 4 committeewoman and Ellis serves as the District 29 committeeman. Both were TEP district captains of their respective districts in the 2009 effort to pass the Metro non-discrimination ordinance. Ellis is the incoming Vice President of TEP.

They join Shane Burkett, committeeman for District 12, and Marisa Richmond, committeewoman for District 23, on the executive committee--both of whom were on the ballot in the recent Davidson County Primary.
