The Democratic Governors Association is a political organization which is independent and voluntary. It was organized to offer support to all the Democratic governors across the United States.
Connie Milstein is the treasurer of DGA, whose function will be crucial as the elections of 2010 loom closer. Especially pressing will be the redistricting process in many states which can have a huge effect on election outcomes for congress and other legislative races to last the entire decade to come. The DGA is the only organization today which is able to and striving towards blocking the threatened manipulation of the redistricting process by the Republican Party.
Also provided by the DGA to its members is expert advice on policy, conducting several conferences a year on a variety of extremely relevant subjects including biotechnology and life sciences, and the impact on the economy of the new energy technologies.
Also crucial for the governors, the DGA participates in election campaigns on all levels, including bringing to the campaigns sources of funding and other resources plus helping deliver and articulate the candidates and Party’s distinct message.
