Morano stays as Pasco Democrats' chair



Despite being sweptMorano in the November election, the Pasco Democratic Party will keep Alison Morano as its chairwoman, as she easily won another term this month.

Though the party lost its races, Democrats improved their performance from the 2004 election. The party also gained a County Commission seat two years ago. Morano is active in the party's Netroots activities and the state chairs organization.

In fact, the toughest part of Morano's re-election might have been after the vote. Executive committee members deadlocked 22-22 in the vice chair's race. So Morano had to cast the deciding vote for Brian Reach over incumbent Cal Branche.

"I decided solely on the facts of what their plan is to help us in the county," said Morano.
