HOUSTON STONEWALL YOUNG DEMOCRATS SUPPORT CHAIRMAN BOYD RICHIE’S CALL FOR DAN RAMOS TO RESIGN AS BEXAR COUNTY PARTY CHAIR
Houston, TX – The Houston Stonewall Young Democrats (HSYD) stand with Texas Democratic Party Chairman Boyd Richie and other Democratic party leaders in calling for the resignation of Dan Ramos as Bexar County Democratic Party Chair.
After remarks directed at the San Antonio Stonewall Democrats wherein Ramos likened Stonewall Democrats to “the Nazi Party”, Ramos held a press conference today standing by his outrageous statement and indicating he had no intention of resigning from his position.
“HSYD withheld comments on Mr. Ramos’ remarks until after the press conference he held today. It’s regrettable to see him standing by his bigoted remarks and refusing to step down.” said HSYD President Robert Shipman. “The Democratic Party is about bringing people together and while all Democrats may not agree on every issue, we should always respect each other and recognize that the work we do is to advance equality and democracy. Mr. Ramos clearly does not embrace that spirit.”
