Warm congratulations and a Blue Jersey Woo Hoo! to Babs Casbar Siperstein, who broke ground again just a few minutes ago by her election to the DNC’s Executive Committee. That vote came at the DNC Fall Meeting in Chicago. Babs, the first out transgender person in the DNC’s history now rises to help lead the national Democrats, joining its top-most leadership committee.
Babs has been a member of the Blue Jersey community since 2006. Last night, before the vote, I wrote about Babs and her journey to bring understanding of transgender issues to the Democratic Party. She’s absolutely a ground-breaker. It’s great news.
There are now two New Jerseyans on the DNC Exec. Committee. Babs joins Tonio Burgos in that work. Babs sent us a jubilant email a few minutes ago. But we’re looking forward to hearing more of this story when she gets back from Chicago.
