WASHINGTON — Today, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee announced the addition of three new members to the DLCC Board of Directors. North Carolina House Democratic Leader Robert Reives, California Senator Monique Limón, and Iowa House Democratic Leader Jennifer Konfrst will join the DLCC Board of Directors ahead of the most important election cycle in state legislative campaign history.
Drawn from legislative leaders across the country, the DLCC’s board is the national governing body of the committee.
Among other responsibilities, the DLCC’s board members:
- Provide strategic thought partnership around DLCC’s strategy and goals.
- Review organizational performance.
- Represent DLCC and its mission within the party to the media and donors.
- Provide tangible examples of the critical work that Democratic leadership is doing in states.
Most importantly, the DLCC board is integral to driving Democrats’ nationwide strategy to win elections in state legislatures. These new board members bring expertise from across the country – their insights will help us reach every community and build Democratic power in 2024 and beyond. The DLCC is poised to make this year our most successful year yet in winning state legislatures.
Leader Robert Reives was elected to the North Carolina House in 2014. As a former prosecutor and a current attorney, Robert has a clear eye toward protecting those who are marginalized, vulnerable, and oppressed. That same approach informs how he leads as a state representative. Robert immediately took on leadership roles upon entering the General Assembly, and he was elected to serve as the House Democratic Leader in 2020.
Senator Monique Limón was elected to the California Senate in November 2020. Born and raised in the 19th Senate District, Monique has worked continuously to serve the community she now represents as an educator, leader, and advocate for causes advancing the quality of life in her community. Before joining the Senate, Monique served for four years as the assemblymember for the region.
Leader Jennifer Konfrst is serving her third term in the Iowa House of Representatives. She served as the House Minority Whip during the 2021 legislative session after which she was elected as the House Democratic Leader, becoming the first woman to hold the post. Her work in the legislature focuses on public education, health care, workers’ rights, affordable housing, and supporting families.
New York Senate President Pro Tempore and Majority Leader and DLCC Chair Andrea Stewart-Cousins issued the following statement:
“As chair of the DLCC Board of Directors, I know Leader Reives, Senator Limón, and Leader Konfrst are excellent additions to our team. Our board prides itself on ensuring we bring leaders together who have experience from every corner of the country, and these new members bring diverse insights that will strengthen the DLCC as a whole. As we strategize for winning state legislative races in 2024 and beyond, I’m excited we have the team in place to make this year one of our most successful years yet in electing Democrats and building state power. 2024 is the year of the states and we have the team and resources in place to make consequential gains for communities across the country.”
DLCC President Heather Williams issued the following statement:
“I’m excited to welcome Leader Reives, Senator Limón, and Leader Konfrst to the DLCC Board in this monumental year for state legislatures. Our board members hail from every corner of the country, and their diverse insights and experiences are instrumental to shaping our national strategy. With these qualified board leaders at the helm, our team is poised to build on our momentum from 2022 and 2023 and win more Democratic majorities in 2024. Together, we can elect Democrats and protect fundamental freedoms in communities across the country.”
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures and building state infrastructure. Over the last decade, we have fought cycle-over-cycle to gain a dozen new legislative chamber majorities and we are leading the effort to bring national attention and investment to our ballot level. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and have the closest connections to Americans’ day-to-day lives. From protecting fundamental freedoms and voting rights to growing the middle class, the DLCC and state legislators are moving the Democratic agenda forward and shaping the future of this country.
