Wildes takes over Englewood Dems

Thomas succeeds Meisner as municipal chair

By David Wildstein

A week after winning the Democratic nomination for mayor of Englewood from off the line,  Michael Wildes has taken back control of the local Democratic party.

Wildes ally Theresa Thomas, who served as Englewood Democratic Municipal chair when Wildes was mayor, was returned to the post on Monday by a vote of 18-12.  She replaces Phil Meisner, who lost the mayoral primary to Wildes.

In addition to winning the mayoral nomination, Wildes also won enough county committee seats to flip the party to his side.

“I’m excited to congratulate Theresa Thomas, a longtime leader in our community and someone I’m proud to call a friend, on her return as Chairperson of the Englewood Democratic Committee,” Wildes said. “I look forward to working with Theresa and the members of the committee to fulfill our team’s goal of renewing Englewood and putting our city back on track.”
