At their regular meeting Monday, the Tompkins County Democratic Committee unanimously elected Dryden Democratic Chair Jim Gustafson to replace retiring Irene Stein as Chair of the Committee. Stein stepped down February 1 after nearly 30 years in the chairmanship.

Stein, who served as City Chair before taking her seat as Committee Chair, gave her annual State of the Committee report, ending by saying, "It's been nearly 30 years in this chairmanship. I'm not sure who I am now, but I guess I'll find myself!"

A collection of county legislators from the past and today came forward to present her with gifts and celebrate her mentorship.

Jim Gustafson came to the committee after working on the Obama campaign and rapidly rose to chair Dryden's Democratic Committee, serving through a series of successful elections there in the village and town. He was a Tompkins County co-chair of Tracy Mitrano's Congressional campaign, conducting phone banks and supervising activities in the campaign office last fall. He has served on TCDC's Issues Committee and Political Action Team.
