Parmley to speak at Pickens County Democratic meeting

CENTRAL — The Pickens County Democratic Party will hold its monthly meeting on February 19 at the Central-Clemson Regional Branch of the Library System.
The meeting is a change in both date and location from the organization’s normal second Saturday gathering.
The library is location is 105 Commons Way in Central, and the meeting will begin promptly at 9 a.m. Guest speaker will be Jay Parmley, the Executive Director of the S.C. Democratic Party. Prior to his sojurn in S.C., Parmley served as Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party.
Parmley initially came to South Carolina on loan from the National Democratic party in 2007 to organize the implementation of VoteBuilder. 
Parmley stayed and helped successfully lead the S.C. party as Democrats experienced a record turnout in the 2008 primary and general election contests.
Parmley was instrumental in planning the state party GOTV effort last year, which contributed to Sen. Vincent Sheheen receiving the second largest yield of any democratic candidate for governor in the southeastern United States.
Parmley will be offering his observations on last November’s results and various other issues confronting democrats and South Carolinians in general.
