State Central Committee

Bernard Schoenburg: Lack of meetings concerns some Democrats

The pay’s not great, but the meeting schedule is light. Still, seats on the Democratic State Central Committee in each of the three congressional districts that include Springfield are being contested in the Feb. 2 Democratic primary.
Democrats voting in the primary elect one man and one woman from each of the state’s 19 congressional districts to be on the committee, which is the official governing body of the Democratic Party. There is no pay.
And for more than a year, there has been no meeting. The party chairman is House Speaker MICHAEL MADIGAN, D-Chicago. As his spokesman STEVE BROWN recalls, the last formal meeting was before the 2008 Democratic National Convention, when the party had to name “superdelegates” to that conclave.
The lack of formal meetings bothers some.
