Members of the Waukesha County Democratic Party voted for their 2017 leadership team Thursday, Nov. 17, electing the youngest party Chair in the history of the Waukesha County Party.

Two-term Vice Chair Matt Lowe was elected as the new Chair of the Party. At age 25, Lowe becomes the youngest elected Chair in the history of the Waukesha County Democratic Party, and the youngest serving in the state of Wisconsin.

Joining Lowe on the executive committee is newly elected Vice Chair Ted Wentzel, Secretary Anne Meyer and, reelected for her second term, Jennifer Neuman as treasurer.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be elected as Chair of this amazing Party. Scott did such a fantastic job as Chair the last two years and I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow our Party” Lowe said.

“I could not be more excited for this upcoming year. We are going to be in the community more than ever. I look forward to spending time at farmers markets, parades and community events, talking to folks about the values and goals of the Democratic Party. With Donald Trump in the White House, I am confident the differences between the two parties will be more apparent than ever” Lowe said.

The Waukesha County Democratic Party is the third largest Democratic Party in Wisconsin, with over 70,000 Democratic supporters. The Party's office is located in downtown Waukesha, 336 Wisconsin Ave.
