Thanks to the support of hundreds of people we are accumulating funds to run a 30 second TV spot. We are budgeting with care because in addition to TV we want to continue to use print media to get our message across and to force, if neccessary, those responsible at the DNC to adhere to their own rules, procedures and democratic principles for an open convention where Senator Clinton has the same opportunity to be voted on by super delegates as Senator Obama since, as the DNC should know, democratic principles are bigger and more important than any particular candidate's personal ambitions.
Leah D. Daughtry (pictured right) is the CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee. According to the official DNCC website:
The Reverend Leah D. Daughtry is currently Chief of Staff of the Democratic National Committee and leads the DNC’s outreach to faith communities. Daughtry held various senior posts at the United States Department of Labor during the Clinton Administration, including Senior Advisor to the Secretary, Chief of Staff, and lastly, Acting Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management, with oversight for the development of the Department’s management programs and policies, including responsibility for the Department’s $35 billion budget. Daughtry also served on the Clinton-Gore 1992 Transition Team, as Managing Director of the 1992 Democratic National Convention, and as Legislative Assistant to U.S. Congressman Edolphus “Ed” Towns.Perhaps Reverend Daughtry will address our concerns.
