Democratic Party names vice chairperson

From Local Sources


The Dubois County Democratic Central Committee unanimously elected Huntingburg native Mikayla Granados, 23, as vice chairperson of the Party Dec. 12 at a special election called to fill a vacancy.

Since becoming active in the Democratic Party this year, Mikayla was instrumental in helping the Dubois County Democratic Party participate in the Latino Culture Fest in Huntingburg for the first time this year. She actively registered volunteers and voters, and distributed Spanish/English translations of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

As a result of her successful work recruiting new members, Granados was appointed to the Dubois County Democratic Party’s Steering Committee and was appointed a Precinct Committee Person for Patoka Township, Precinct 3 in September by Chairperson Mike Kendall.

Granados is studying for her bachelor’s degree in pre-law at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College near Terre Haute. She is a 2015 graduate of Southridge High School, where she was president of Key Club for two years.

She is currently employed as a material handler at OFS, where she maintains physical and computer inventory quality, quantity and location control.

She is the first Latino officer of the Dubois County Democratic Party.
