Time to get past party labels and talk about issues

-A A +A

I want to give a shout-out to all the folks who voted for Democratic candidates in past elections. I would like to appeal to those who didn’t but might consider doing so this time around. Your Roane County Democratic Party is alive and well.

We hold monthly meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Greenwood School, Greenwood Street, Kingston (next to the new baseball field). And we have an active Facebook page for the county Democrats where you can read articles and exchange ideas.

It’s time to get past party labels and talk about issues: What are we doing about health coverage in this country? How can we help our state that ranks 50th in voter turnout? What can we do in our own county about educating the next generation?

We live in divisive times and definitely need to mend.

I hope to see you on May 10 where you might find a political home.
