The Los Alamos Democratic Party monthly meeting is slated for 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 8 in Building 5 at UNM-LA.
Democratic State Party Chair Marg Elliston is scheduled to attend.
Elliston is a Corrales resident who was elected chair of the Democratic Party of Sandoval County five years ago. In that time, she focused on working collaboratively and inclusively. She helped lead a strong executive committee, successfully ensured the organization had the resources to reach their goals and boosted excitement and enthusiasm throughout the county.
Elliston worked to grow a volunteer-based campaign headquarters, which worked diligently to elect local and statewide Democratic nominees. She is a long-time advocate for women and children, starting her volunteer lobbying at the New Mexico State Legislature in 1978. She raised her family in Corrales where she still lives with her husband Fred Harris.
