Keep Moving Forward

As we move forward from the excitement of the inauguration, the work ahead begins, guided by our Democratic principles. Our focus must include monitoring and holding accountable those who are elected to our state and county-level government, arguably the levels of government that have the most impact on our daily lives.  We must speak out about attacks on public education, the need for better  teacher pay, the lack of access to healthcare , the failures of Medicaid block grants and the pervasive poverty that leaves people homeless and hungry in our communities. We must move forward with a commitment to our Democratic Platform.

I want to thank all the individuals of the Democratic Party who have spent a lifetime showing up to champion causes greater than themselves while inspiring and leading a new generation to carry the torch forward. Through economic downturns, socio-political turmoil, the rise of the 24-hour news cycle, the unmasking of white supremacy, and, yes, even former President Donald Trump, you were there. Not only did we survive; we have emerged stronger and more focused than ever before. No matter when you joined our movement, thank you for being here now.

Join us in our mission to elect more Democrats locally, support truth and justice, hold the powerful to account, and undertake the difficult work of dismantling the systems of institutionalized racism and white supremacy. We are ready to get back to work.  Are you ready? Join us on February 12 to Speak Your Voice. Watch for more exciting announcements in the coming days about how you can be involved

Keep Moving Forward,
