Meet Our New Party Chair, Anna Langthorn
In her first party leadership role, Anna served as the president of the Young Democrats of Oklahoma for two years. During her tenure, she led young Democrats to champion a ballot initiative in Bartlesville, knock more than 20,000 doors as part of a GOTV effort for Kathy Taylor, and take the largest delegation in the United States to the National Young Democrats of America convention in 2013.
Anna has put her passion for Democratic politics into action, knocking doors everywhere from Oklahoma City to Tulsa and Tahlequah to McLoud. She has worked for a diverse group of candidates including Native, Latina, Asian-American, black, transgender and gay candidates–making sure everyone has the chance to have their voice heard in the political process. She has taken charge of recruiting candidates and managing races at all levels, from municipal to state races. Anna has also worked on a number of Cherokee Nation tribal council races, in addition to her role as Deputy Campaign Manager for the successful re-election of Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. Regarded by her peers as an expert in the field, Anna brings a successful history of fundraising, targeting, and recruiting. A native Oklahoman and life-long Democrat, Anna hopes to use her campaign proficiency and drive to build a more resilient and effective program that encourages engagement statewide and ultimately helps elect more Democrats.
