The Grant County Democratic Party is pleased to announce that Cristina Cook has been elected its new Secretary.
A caucus of eligible Precinct Committee representatives convened on the evening of Dec. 14, 2023, to fill the fill the vacancy left by the resignation of previous Secretary Torri Williams. Cook was the only candidate on the ballot at the caucus.
Cook has served as an election worker for the Grant County Democratic Party for the past few elections, and was involved with the Democratic Party previously as Secretary in Cass County.
Cook is a teacher at Marion High School, where she teaches Spanish and sponsors the Latino Student Alliance club. She hopes that in this new role as Secretary she can offer students the chance to get involved with local polotics and campaigns, voter registration, election work, and more.
Before moving to Indiana in 2010, she was a school teacher in Mexico, where she is originally from.
"As a woman, single mother, immigrant, and educated person of color, I share the values of the Democratic Party and I’m committed to fight for progress, equality, education, the environment, and social causes," she said.
We are happy to welcome her to the Central Committee here in Grant County! She will serve out the current term, which runs through the Indiana Democratic Party’s next quadrennial reorganization in March 2025.
The full Central Committee now consists of Chair Patricia Gibson, Vice Chair Tom Roop, Secretary Cristina Cook, and Treasurer Geoff Williams. We are grateful to all of these volunteers for their essential work to propel the Grant County Democratic Party forward!
The Grant County Democratic Party is actively seeking volunteers to help with campaigns, to serve as Precinct Chairs, and to help with other Party building tasks. We are also seeking election workers for the upcoming General Election. Anyone interested in any of this work should email email@example.com, or visit www.grantcountydems.com for more information.
