New Year's Resolutions for the DPG

It's that time of the year again. You know, the time when the guilt over the indulgences of Christmas creeps up on us, and we resolve to swear off sugar, get back to the gym and in general tame one or more of our vices. Seldom do New Year's Resolutions "take", but, still, this is a good time for assessment and an opportunity for change. Since change is something that the DPG must do in order to become effective, over the next few days, I'm going to post a few suggested New Year's resolutions for the DPG. I do this recognizing that this is an organization to which I, and many of you, belong. So, this is less about what I think "they" should do, and more about what I think "we" should do. I will post one resolution a day for the next few days. Please chime in with your comments and your own proposed "resolutions" for the party. I will move the best of the lot to the front page.

Here's mine for today:

The Democratic Party of Georgia will do a better job of building relationships, and we will no longer neglect our best 'natural resource' for candidate recruitment.

Instead, we will reach out to locally elected Democrats and Democratic organizations in all 159 Georgia counties (sheriff's, county commissioners, school board members and others). We will come to the table with resources to help build mutually beneficial relationships, better coordinate candidate recruitment, field planning and GOTV efforts.

Now, what's your suggestion?
