President Rob Weiss's Letter to Membership - 12/13/07

Hi Dems,

My name is Rob Weiss, and I’m extremely proud to serve you as the newly elected President of Princeton College Democrats.

We can’t thank enough outgoing president Julia Brower, who, as our diligent and effective leader for the past two years, has put College Democrats on track to an even brighter future. But though we’re all extremely sad to see her go, I know we’re equally excited about the prospects for this year.

The national scene sure bodes well. The 2008 election promises to be the most exciting and historic we’ve yet witnessed in our lives, with Democrats poised to take the White House and expand majorities in Congress. Students across the nation are more politically engaged than ever before. And after a miserable Bush presidency, we Democrats have the opportunity to do so much good: healing our country’s divisions, restoring the world’s faith in America’s leadership, caring for our most needy, and together squaring up to confront the big challenges our nation faces.

On campus, we’ve got reason to be psyched too. Our team of officers is a great mix of experienced leaders and energetic newcomers. Liberal-leaning students outweigh conservatives at Princeton by at least 3-1, and College Democrats has many times the size and strength of our Republican counterpart. We count among our membership the leaders of the USG and of many student groups; we have connections with local, state, and national campaigns and officials, and innumerable other resources at our fingertips.

So with that, I encourage you to check out the College Dems 2008 Guiding Principles for a preview of where we’re going to go this year, and how we’re going to get there.

Please get in touch with me (rmweiss@princeton.edu) or any of our other officers to share your thoughts, ideas, or questions. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Democratically yours,


Here we will feature a blog integrated from blogger.com. For more information about becoming a blogger for the Princeton University College Democrats, please check out this page.
