Hello Fellow Democrats,
The 2016 elections have now passed. While the results were disappointing on the state and national level, Democrats won every single one of their races locally. We could not have done so without the hard work of the hundreds of people who came out to knock on doors, make phone calls, register voters, give rides to the polls, and contributed financially to Democratic campaigns.
The election is behind us, but our hardest work lies ahead. We are going to build on our success locally and push back against the exclusionary agenda of the GOP on the State and federal level. We will support our local Democratic leaders as they serve as a model for progressive leadership in Indiana. We will find new ways preserve and expand our grassroots network and use it as a vehicle for positive social change.
We can’t do any of this without you.
With no elections in 2017, it is an opportunity to build our momentum, expand our base, and engage our community with new ideas for organization and mobilization. More than ever, we need you to volunteer. We need good folks to make contributions, no matter how small, to strength our coalition of community allies.
Keep the faith, and keeping fighting for Democratic values. We have a lot of work to do!
Chairman, Monroe County Democratic Party
