Perez asks for Democratic Party staff resignations

Posted March 30, 2017

A committee advising Perez is interviewing staff members in order to help decide how the party will be restructured in the future. Progressive activists, angered by Wasserman Schultz, called for wholesale changes at the DNC during the 2016 election. "The process was started before the election of the new chair". Perez also is expected to bring some of his top aides who worked for him when he was former President Barack Obama's labor secretary.

Veteran party operative Donna Brazile acted as interim chairman before Perez was elected.

What's next for Perez and the Democrats?

Perez began remaking the party two weeks ago, appointing a 30-member transition advisory committee that spans the gamut of Democratic interests.

"What we're trying to do is culture change", Perez told NBC News between stops of a listening tour in Michigan Friday. "We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet". The party moved to the left with Sanders' candidacy and the question was how much clout the liberal left will have once Perez gets done.

Delev was again on target 15 minutes later, firing home from 20 yards out, and there was to be no way back for the Dutch. The Dutch FA said recent results left the team with difficulty qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation .

During an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe Wednesday, Sanders said the party needs a "top-down overhaul" and to become a "grassroots party".

"I know that Donald Trump talked a mean game about job creation".

Earlier this month, Perez held a meeting to discuss the issue with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sanders, both of whom supported Ellison in the DNC chair race, along with Ellison, Sanders aides Jeff Weaver and Larry Cohen, and others. In the years ahead, we must strengthen our team, and our bench, from the ground up.

Perez is now working with a 30-member advisory committee - which includes elected officials, as well as activists like Deray McKesson of Black Lives Matter - to determine how the party will be structured going forward. NBC News reports there were progressive complaints about the make-up of the committee which led to some additional progressives being added.
