It is again approaching time for County-level Democratic Party Elections. We desperately need Party leaders who are willing to work because there is much work to be done.
We need to engage our young people and show them the way of a two party system so that we will not have a situation like what we had in 2016 in which too many stayed home. We have to help them to understand that sometimes we have to pick a side even if it is not the ideal path they would prefer. They must be educated to weigh the issues at hand and make a choice that will provide the best outcome.
In Greenwood, we as a community are faring pretty well but there is always room for improvement. We the people need to get back in the habit of paying attention to what is going on in our local, state, and federal governing agencies. We need more to attend the meetings, subscribe to the local newspaper, tune in to the local news channels, and be engaged in social media. Leaders have obviously taken advantage of our inattentiveness and enriched themselves at the taxpayers’ expense.
I have taken the advice of President Obama and gotten involved. I want to take this opportunity to announce that I will be running for a second term as Chair of the Greenwood County Democratic Party. I humbly request your support on March 3rd 2018 to continue the work we’ve begun to better the lives of Greenwood County Citizens: On the local level (where we live) as well as at State and Federal levels.
We are having a Precinct Committee Meeting (including Temporary or Permanent Precinct Presidents) this coming Monday, January 8th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Veteran’s Room at our County Library.
Anyone who has already said they would be a Temporary Leader and those that want to serve as a Temporary Leader (until Precinct Elections are held in their Precinct) are strongly urged to attend. You must live in the Precinct in order to be a leader and we have open positions for following:
