After his election, Sheinberg told the DTC, “I am honored and humbled to serve as your Chairman. I look forward to working with all of you to continue to elect Democrats in our town, state and nation who will reflect our values, supporting strong schools, maintaining services, and being fiscally responsible.” Sheinberg thanked Heather Dean, outgoing Chairman, for her service.
