Harding elected TCDP chair

Tuesday, October 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Former Travis County Democratic Party Secretary Vincent Harding has been sworn in as the organization’s new chair. According to a statement about his election, Harding was overwhelmingly selected on Sept. 30 by the party’s Executive Committee of Precinct Chairs. On the topic of his election, he said, “I am truly honored to be the youngest person ever elected to serve as chair and only the second African-American. I know that I stand on the shoulders of giants, and I am committed to opening doors for those who will follow me. I look forward to working with all of our elected officials, precinct chairs, activists and anyone else who wants to come into the broad tent of the Democratic Party as we pursue liberty and justice for all.” Harding replaces outgoing Chair Jan Soifer. He has already moved to plan TCDP’s next forum, on the topic of immigration.
