"People of ALL ages and backgrounds deserve to have a place in our Party's leadership."

Dyana Limon-Mercado

I believe in grassroots leadership, equity, and accessibility. 

I’m Dyana Limon-Mercado and I’m running for Travis County Democratic Party Chair because people like me and you – working class people, young people, people of color, and people of all ages and backgrounds who have been leading grassroots work in their communities – asked me to run. They asked me to run because I care deeply about the future of our Democratic Party and the future of Travis County. I have the skills to get the job done, and I have the vision and values to lead us forward.

Travis County and the Democratic Party pride themselves on being diverse communities where all are welcome, yet leadership positions and decision making power continue to be held by few. We deserve better and we can do better. The past year of resistance has shown us that others are ready to step up and lead, that we can and should be leading with our values, and that a grassroots-up approach is the future of our movement.


What I Want to Implement


There needs to be a process to offer and hear solutions. We must ensure that everyone understands the rules when a decision is made collectively as a body.

Once a process is defined, we need clear decisions on where to go for the future. How do we prepare for that? By setting strategic priorities that build relationships with certain communities, improve local turnout in those communities, and connect with other close counties to build our strength.

Once decisions are made, we must have a plan to put rubber to the road.
