My name is Matthew Kilburn and I’m the new President of the Idaho Young Democrats. I wanted to reach out to Democrats of all ages to talk about IDYD, as well as a plan for 2018 to help move Idaho forward. I’m reaching out because we cannot do it on our own, and we are so excited to start getting people involved!
What an honor it is to have been elected President of IDYD. I am coming into leadership at a time when young people are needed more than ever. We know that young people get things done. As a caucus of the Idaho Democratic Party, I understand that this job requires respect and hard work and I will try to not just represent young Dems in Idaho, but make sure IDYD represents the party we belong to.
Ultimately, I’m hoping that I can leave IDYD in a better position than when I arrived. But I can’t do this alone. I need your help to reach our end of the year goal for 2017 of $5,000 to make sure we start off 2018 with a bang! Click here to help us reach that goal.
IDYD is an organization that is focused on training young people (36 and under) to help Idaho Democrats get elected to office. We are also focused on helping young people run for office. We were able to help young Dems last month to get elected by organizing voter registration drives and days of action, as well as providing volunteers. In 2016, we were the only state chapter to hire field fellows. Hiring field fellows won’t be cheap, so help us reach our fundraising goal to get ready for hiring field fellows by clicking here.
Our goals are big for 2018, but I know that we can reach them together! Here are our goals for 2018:
· $50,000 fundraising goal
· Hire 4 field fellows and 2 interns
· Endorsement program for candidates
· Membership growth
· Local chapter days of action
· Get Dems elected all over Idaho!
Although our goals are bold, I know that together we can reach them to help get Idaho Dems elected. 2018 are incredibly important and IDYD will get young people involved so we go into the year ready to fight. Click here to help pitch in toward our 2017 end of the year goal of $5,000.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
Matt Kilburn, President
Idaho Young Democrats
