The next meeting of the Columbia County Democratic Party will be on June 5 at the Columbia County Government Center Auditorium, Bldg. A, on Ronald Reagan Drive, Evans.
The social will begin at 6:30 PM and the meeting at 7:00 PM. This month we will be breaking up into 4 working groups, so that members can get involved in their areas of interest.
The groups will be led by the Vice chairs and are as follows:
Rules & Procedures (1st Vice Chair Sarah Moody).
Community Events ( 2nd Vice Chair Virginia Todman),
Fund Raising and Candidate Recruitment (3rd Vice Chair Sandy Partridge),
Membership & Publicity (4th Vice Chair Stewart Canady)
Please consider what topic you are interested in, and be ready to join the group with your suggestions and cooperation.
Also, please remember to bring your donation to Columbia County Cares. Children are now out of school, and no longer receiving school meals, so it is very important that we contribute what we can to help them get healthy meals during the summer break.
The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.
If you wish to attend, please contact Sarah Moody at Sarah.Moody527@comcast.net.
In just a few days, I’m coming to Atlanta to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic Party of Georgia’s State Dinner.I’ve been watching Georgia—especially the 6th Congressional District race. There is a fire burning in Georgia—and throughout this nation—and it’s growing. We’ve united to tell Donald Trump and his buddies that enough is enough, and we will never give them a free pass.We will resist.Now is not the time to play nice. Donald Trump ran on a platform of hate and fear, and now he’s governing the same way. The man who bragged about grabbing women now has influence to deny them of their basic rights. The man who praised Vladimir Putin is now surrounded by a cabinet that champions the Kremlin agenda and stonewalls investigations into their own shady ties to a hostile foreign government.But, thanks to members of the resistance—activists just like you—I am inspired and more determined than ever to hold these Republicans accountable. They can try and pull whatever stunts they want, but I am unbothered, unimpressed, and have zero tolerance for their agenda.We all have a role to play, and we must unite to get this country back on track. Step up, speak out, and join me for dinner on April 20th.Stay woke and see you on the 20th,Representative Maxine Waters
