About the Democratic Leaders and Alumni Council

The DMO Democratic Leaders and Alumni Council is formed to provide both ongoing engagement opportunities for Democratic Municipal Officials who have moved on to serve in another office, or who no longer hold pubic office, and for Democratic Leaders who recognize the value of developing the effectiveness of Democratic Municipal Officials to serve as the local voice of the Democratic Party and the “bench” for candidates to county, state and federal office.


Message from Alumni Council Chair Lou La Monte

I’m hoping this message finds you and your family safe and well in these difficult times. I’m also hoping you remember me, Lou La Monte, Former Mayor of Malibu. I am now Chair of the DMO Alumni Council, and I would like to invite you to be a member of our national network of former elected officials. Your term as an elected leader may be complete for now, but your job as a Democratic Leader continues.

This Alumni Council brings decades of combined political experience, expertise and countless government and professional relationships to our organization.  We plan to expand our long-standing relationships across the country and use our valuable experience to benefit DMO and our members.

Defeating Donald Trump. Recovering from COVID-19. Restoring the Economy. Public Safety.  Infrastructure.  Voter Protection.  Climate Change. Immigration. Labor. Gun Control. Pre-emption. Sustainable Water Affordability (NationalDMO.org/WaterSecurity). Preparing for the next Pandemic and Getting Democrats Elected. These are some of the many issues DMOs are working on across the nation.

The DMO Alumni Council now has a voice on the National Board and DMO depends on our Alumni to connect, empower, and engage Democratic municipal officials across the country, particularly at the State Chapter level. As a member, you will have the opportunity to be part of the DMO Alumni Leadership Team or an Active Circle Member.

Please consider joining us on the DMO Alumni Council. If you have questions or would like to learn more about the DMO Alumni Council or The Strong Cities Alliance or The Strong Cities Alliance Educational Fund, please contact me or you can reach Barbara Moore at 312-758-1818 or by email at Barbara.Moore@NationalDMO. Thank you and stay safe.
