We are very sad to report the passing of Dorothy Dean. She was 85 and had been ailing for some time.
Dorothy was a Democratic Precinct Chair and Election Judge in Oak Cliff for many decades, probably one of the half-dozen or so longest-serving ones we have had here in Dallas County. She was a leading activist beyond just her own precinct, serving as a member of the State Democratic Executive Committee, as 23rd Senatorial District Convention Chair, as delegate and committee member or chair many times at state and district conventions, as a member of the Dallas County Democratic Party Advisory Council and the DCDP Strategic Planning Committee, and as a key staffer and advisor in more campaigns than we could count.
I think I first met her when she was marking and giving out precinct maps for the hundreds of people who used to gather at the UAW Hall to walk the streets getting out the vote for good Democratic candidates in general elections and primaries. Later before and during my time as County Chair she was immensely helpful in finding and recruiting Precinct Chairs and Election Judges. She was one of the key figures in the history of the Dallas County Democratic Party. --Bill Howell, former DCDP County Chair

The Leadership Council is a special group within the Dallas County Democratic Party of elected officials who provide financial and leadership support to the party. Our elected officials understand that a strong local party is key to their own success during their initial election and subsequent re-elections. This financial support allows the party to provide more comprehensive voter outreach for candidates and develop expansive “Get Out The Vote” efforts. See the list at this page.
