OCDP Convention: New Officers and Selfies!


After speaking to our OCDP 2014 County Convention, Lt Governor-candidate Bakari Sellers was persuaded to take a selfie ... so not only was this young man's speech a thoughtful focus on issues and problem-solving, but his openness and ability to listen and enjoy this political process were impressive. We got your back, Bakari!   For more information about his experience and stance on issues, please check his campaign website:  http://sellers2014.com

Newly elected officers for Oconee Democrats: left to right, Carl Fortson, alternate executive committeeman; Derek Lampe, 3rd vice chair; Joel Arnold, 2nd vice chair; Ellis Hughes, executive committeewoman; Ken Marsh, executive committeeman; Al Gaines, 1st vice chair; Linda Holt, alternate executive chairwoman; Bruce Marshall, secretary, and Rosellen Aleguire, chair. Not pictured is David Harshbarger, treasurer.

There were also eight resolutions presented and approved by the group.  Once the language is finalized on these petitions, they will be posted on this website for everyone's perusal.  These resolutions will be presented to the SC Democratic Party Convention in May for state-wide review.

County Convention Features Bakari Sellers

Join Oconee Democrats as we elect new officers and delegates to the SCDP May convention and talk about resolutions to propose in that statewide convention. Time for all to plan for the critical fall election. Everyone is welcome.

Our keynote speaker is SC Rep. Bakari Sellers who is running for SC Lt. Governor. Come meet this dynamic young man!

A resident of Denmark, Sellers has served in the South Carolina Statehouse since 2006. At the time of his election he was the youngest serving member of the House of Representatives, and in the years since has proven to be one of the body’s most effective leaders.

The son of civil rights leader Dr. Cleveland Sellers and Gwendolyn Sellers, Bakari learned at a young age the importance of public service. He was Student Government Association President and a member of the Board of Trustees at Morehouse College and earned his JD from the University of South Carolina.
