The Democratic National Committee announced the members of two panels tasked with putting together the party’s platform for the next four years, including Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., and Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Chaired by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, the Platform Drafting Committee will meet in full July 27-29 in Minneapolis, where members of the public can pitch their suggestions to the panel. The DNC has launched a website to receive entries until July 20.

The group of 15 includes Frank and former Reps. Tony Coehlo, D-Calif., and Robert Wexler, D-Fla. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is serving as a nonvoting member of the committee.

 

The full committee will then meeting August 10-12 in Detroit, where members will vote on a platform to present to convention delegates in Charlotte, N.C., come September. Booker will chair this committee in part.

The convention’s rules committee, which meets the weekend before the Sept. 3 convention, will be chaired in part by Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

In May, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that the legalization of gay marriage likely would be on the party platform.
