As a trustee on the Democratic Leadership Council, Connie Milstein believes in the goals of the DLC. The following brief descriptions should give you an idea of what the DLC’s goals are:
A Successful Agenda of Reform and Improvement– Through research and education via the publishing of reports, cutting-edge solutions, hosting working sessions and forums we will advance the reforms we support on the major challenges facing us today, such as health-care reform, education, energy, trade, economic and fiscal long-term responsibility, and more.
A Belief in Pragmatism and Not Ideology– We believe we need to look past party politics and ideology and concentrate on finding practical solutions to the issues we all agree are urgent. We want all Americans to work together to achieve our goals of a better life for all.
Get the Country Moving Again– Employing reform with responsibility we want to move past the inertia of current politics. We hope to aggressively reach out to promote our ideas and the goal of reform. We plan on working jointly and closely with the White House, Cabinet and the Congress.
