  • [01] Democrats Abroad announces renewed country com't for Greece

    WASINGTON D.C. (ANA-MPA) -- The Democrats Abroad organisation on Tuesday approved the refounding of the Democrats Abroad Greece (DAGR) as a country committee, according to a relevant press release here.

    Founded in 1964, Democrats Abroad is the official overseas branch of America's Democratic Party, which represents Americans living abroad.

    The Greek chapter had an active committee from 1986 until 2008.

    "It is particularly meaningful to welcome back Democrats Abroad Greece, as we recognize that it is the birthplace of modern democracy. With Yvette Jarvisā leadership, DAGR will bring both energy and enthusiasm to the entire organization and do all that it can to help get democrats elected to Congress this year," said Christine Schon Marques, the international chairwoman for Democrats Abroad.

    Yvette Jarvis, a long-time resident of Greece and a current adviser to the Athens municipality, will serve as the DAGR's chairwoman.

    The DAGR's current executive committee will consist of Jarvis, Alec Mally, Brady Kiesling, John A. Bacalis, Nicholas J. Pisaris, Lyn Waldie and Kostas Zafirakis.
