rats bow to pressure, change Passover plans,” the JTNews didn’t credit Jeremy Sher, a Democratic Party activist, former State Democrats technology director, and a member of the Jewish Democratic Caucus, with putting together the movetheconvention.com Web site in just over a day with full support of his company, Hang-wire. Also, while the article mentioned, generally, “Jewish Democratic activists,” credit should specifically be given to Jeremy, Rainer Adkins, David Kaplan, Alan Corwin, Linda Clifton, Tobi Braverman and David Chassin. Without their sounding the alarm, and their dedication to supporting the Democratic Party and to ensuring the inclusion of the Jewish community, no one would have recognized the conflict until it was too late to do anything about it.
JTNews readers should know that all of those involved greatly appreciated State Democratic Party chair Dwight Pelz’s decision to support rescheduling the conventions. We look forward to a meeting soon with Mr. Pelz to propose a simple calendaring process for the future. We are sure Mr. Pelz will demonstrate his leadership once more and work with us to ensure that this kind of conflict does not occur again.
