The Loudoun County Democratic Committee held its biannual reorganization Saturday, December 7, welcoming members to a new term and selecting new leadership. In the first official meeting of the 2014/2015 term, members elected Valerie Suzdak as Chair, Larry Roeder and Randy Ihara as Vice Chairs, Jackie Johnson as Secretary, and Kannan Srinivasan as Treasurer.
Ms. Suzdak served as LCDC Secretary for most of 2013, and previously served as Vice Chair of the Loudoun County Young Democrats. Mr. Ihara was Dulles District Chair last term, and has previously served as a Vice Chair of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee. Mr. Roeder ran for Dulles District Supervisor in 2011, and served in the State Department for 35 years before retiring in 2005. Mrs. Johnson has served in various ministries in McLean Bible Church, including the Access Ministry which served parishioners with special needs, and was very active in her husband Monte Johnson’s campaign for Delegate. Mr. Srinivasan is a CPA and Treasurer of Capital IIT – an alumni association of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) for Greater Washington DC.
“This is the most diverse group of officers in LCDC history,” Suzdak said, “and the opportunity to energize Loudoun’s growing constituencies is in our grasp. If we reach for it, we will turn Loudoun as blue as Fairfax, and this leadership team is committed to making that a reality.”
