Alliance Party: Announcement!

The Alliance Party sent out the following press release on Tuesday:

One of the two National Vice Chair’s of the Alliance Party, Michael Burger, has announced that he is stepping down from the position effective Jan 10, 2021. As National Vice Chair of the Modern Whig Party, Michael was instrumental in bringing people together to Denver in October of 2018 to found the Alliance Party.

We are grateful for the work Mike has done, especially as the catalyst for many of the party mergers we have experienced. We have seen this party grow from an idea to a national contender in just a few short years. Although Mike will remain a supporter, we wish him all the best.

Mike has offered this statement, “It has been an honor to be a founding member and a National Vice-Chair for our growing party. I am looking forward to seeing the future growth and new candidates our party will have in the future. We have some very talented people in our party. Your new Vice-Chair is one of those people.

I encourage each of you to get involved in your state party. I also encourage you to become a monthly, recurring donor giving $5, $10, $20, or more monthly to support the work being done to grow our young great party.

I want to thank Brian Mistrot and James Rex for excepting the position of National Chair in the past. Also to Darcy Richardson for accepting the National Chair position now.

I will continue to support our party and the members of the National Committee. I hope each of you will do the same with your time and your donations.”

We are excited to announce that the Alliance Party National Committee voted unanimously to appoint Jonathan Etheridge to fulfill the term of National Vice Chair which expires in 2023. He will assume the position on Jan. 1, 2021.

Jonathan is a business, technology, and inclusion and diversity leader with experience in the healthcare, consumer packaged goods, and government industries. He holds an Executive MBA from Davenport University and is a graduate of executive certification programs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and University of California – Berkeley. Jonathan has over a decade of experience in policy research, development, and legislative advocacy on issues related to veterans, healthcare reform, technology, and privacy. He is a veteran of the United States Navy and a board or committee member of several organizations dedicated to the causes of veterans such as Operation Homefront, the Veterans Corporate Council, and the Disabled American Veterans. Prior to assuming the role of National Vice Chair of the Alliance Party, Jonathan was a State Chair and Regional Coordinator with the Modern Whigs and the Alliance Party following the merge, serving as an At-Large Member of the National Committee of the Alliance Party.

We are excited that Jonathan has accepted the position as we prepare to move to the next phase of our ascent as a major player in American politics.
