Message from the Chair
Today is not a day that you need to hear anything from me. Instead, I encourage you to take some time to hear directly from six members of the GWCDP who have served our country over the decades. While their experiences are as varied as our nation overall they were all asked the same question at the end of the video yet had very similar responses.
Do you have 12 minutes that you can spare to hear their words today?
Thank you to the following who contributed their time to this video and to all who have heeded the call to serve our country. We are forever in your debt.
Sloan Griffin, Jr – Dr. Bob Phillips – Claudia Thomas
Chad Farrell – Frank Koczwara – David Gaskin

Volunteer of the Month award
November Volunteers of the Month announced
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Democratic Party. We were thrilled to recognize Claudia Thomas and Chad Farrell as our Volunteers of the Month for November! They attended their first Breakfast Meeting just this past July but since then they’ve been instrumental in the success of the Floyd’s Fish Fry and have assisted with Breakfast Meetings since. Thank you for your contribution to the cause!
Upcoming Elections & Voting Rights
SC Senate Redistricting
In a surprising proposal, a major shifting of Senate territories has been shared by the SC Senate staff. Greenwood County, which was mostly in District 10 except for a little “finger” that comes down from Anderson, would be fully in District 10 in the new proposal.
