The Marion County Democrats are now under new leadership. Anita Martin was elected Chair on March 24th during a Democratic Central Committee Meeting. Martin tells KNIA KRLS news she’s still acquainting herself with her duties and hoping to do her best for the County Democrats. She says she has jumped into the position with both feet and wants to see more people involved in the Central Committee. Other officers include Tarry Vant Hof as Vice Chair, Sheila Weldon as Secretary and Ron Long as Treasurer. Committee officers are elected every two years by a majority vote.
