Dan Parker announced late in 2011 that he was going to resign. After talking with some of the key candidates, he then decided to take the position back to get the party through the 2012 elections and rescinded his resignation.
Zody was unopposed as Chair. Cordelia Lewis Burks is back as Vice Chair. Vera Mileusnic is the new Secretary, and Sherrianne Stradley is the new Treasurer.
