Havre Daily News: HHS junior tapped as Dems vice chair

A17-year-old Havre High School junior is now No. 2 in the Hill County Democratic party’s hierarchy.

Jacob Bachmeier, who is active in speech and debate, student council and Leadership High School, was tapped to be vice chair of Hill County Democrats at the annual convention Tuesday night.

Party officials said they’d bet he was the youngest party official in Montana.

Chair Brenda Skornogoski, who was unanimously re-elected Tuesday night, praised Bachmeier for his eagerness and knowledge of politics.
