The Steering Committee is nominating two Honorary Co-Chairs for the upcoming Presidential Nominating Convention. They are the gender-balanced team of David Cobb and Colia Clark. They will be confirmed in 2 separate proposals. As you can see below, they are more than "honorary." They have important roles. This proposal is for confirmation of David Cobb, our 2004 Presidential nominee. See and
