If the Democratic Party wants to regain control of the state legislature as well as congressmen and senators, they need to make some basic changes! For a start, quit having so many committees and meetings and follow the example of Jesse Helms. Establish in each county a "HELP DESK" manned by volunteers from the local party and use the help desk concept to begin to develop a deep and sincere relationship between the party and the individual citizens in each county. A Help Desk will in the long run, produce a deeper relationship between the party and the people. County by county and slowly but surely!
