Guam - The Democratic Party of Guam's Central Executive Committee is scheduled to meet this evening. And according to acting chairman Darryl Taggerty, the meetings leading up to the Democratic Party's elections later this summer are crucial in order to foster a strong party come election season next year.

He told KUAM News, "It's quiet, there's no major campaigns going on so people are kind of sitting down and not being active. At this time, we need to mobilize the core democrats to come up with the leadership that's going to take us into 2014."  

Taggerty is the party's vice chair and has been serving as the head of the party since March. The party has selected Speaker Judi Won Pat to chair the Nominating Committee, which will hold its election in the last week of August. The CEC meanwhile made up of representatives from all the villages.
