PLYMOUTH — The Indiana 2nd Congressional District Democratic Party met virtually on Saturday, March 13, for its quadrennial reorganizational meeting to elect officers of the central committee.
Democratic county chairs and vice-chairs re-elected Michelle Livinghouse as their district chair for the 2021-25 term. She was first elected by a caucus in February 2020, filling a vacancy left by Bryan Tanner. Prior to district chair, Livinghouse has served as vice-chair for the 2nd district and Democratic chair for Marshall County.
Also elected were Vice-Chair Chad Harris of Wabash, Secretary Chad Crabtree of Elkhart, and Treasurer James Gardner of Goshen.
“I am excited to bring new energy and activism to the 2nd District Democratic Party,” said Crabtree. “I encourage others across the 10 counties to join us in helping to elect Democrats so we can raise the minimum wage, increase public teacher salaries, protect Indiana’s environment and invest in high paying quality jobs.”
Livinghouse and Harris will serve on the State Central Committee and will elect the next chair of the Indiana Democratic Party on Saturday, March 20.
Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District comprises the counties of Elkhart, Kosciusko, Fulton, LaPorte, Marshall, Miami, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke and Wabash.
