With the new year comes new beginnings. National Chair Jim Rex, who graciously, and wonderfully, stepped in to fill in for Brian Mistrot announced he would step down Dec 31. By unanimous vote of the National Committee Darcy Richardson was elected to fill his term.
National Vice Chair, Michael Burger, announced he is stepping down for personal reasons. The National Committee unanimously elected At-Large National Committee member Jonathan Etheridge to fill his term. A smooth transition of leadership is testimony to the strength of an organization. You may read the full announcements HERE.
Both terms will expire in 2023,
The Alliance Grows:
Our support base has grown in leaps and bounds, new leaders are arising and we are in dialogue with other parties regarding potential future mergers. Spread the word, like, share, follow and retweet us on social media
In what is an “off-year” in most states we will be putting an emphasis in strengthening our state affiliate program. 2021 will be dedicated to expanding and strengthening our grassroots state affiliate system to ensure that we have the foundation to enable our local, state, and federal candidates to compete effectively with the representatives of a duopoly that continues to cause harm to our nation.

- Looking Ahead, With Tim Cotton The Alliance Party’s National Political Director Tim Cotton drops by to talk about the Alliance Party’s plans and objectives for 2021. There’s a lot to accomplish in the new year. In general, there will be an emphasis on building the party from the bottom up. This begins at the local level, where getting the word out and getting people to talk about kitchen table issues will be emphasized. Of course, there will be a push for ballot access in as many states as possible. 2021 is also a convention year for the Alliance Party; we would like to host an in-person convention, but much depends on Covid restrictions.This is an informative interview that should help familiarize you with the direction for 2021, as 2020 disappears into the history books..
