Thank you to all who helped in the Nov. Election
We are all disappointed with the outcome of the November election. Turnout was dismal, in Greene County and throughout Missouri, and Democratic voters were apathetic.
Although we have a lot of work to do for 2016, I saw a number of things that we as Greene County Democrats should feel proud of. We had an incredible slate of Democratic candidates who were dedicated, smart and hardworking. It's very tough to run for office. These candidates turned their lives upside down, working day in and day out to get the Democratic message out. In forums, at community events and at the doors, our candidates were shining stars.
We also had an incredible base of support for our candidates. We had volunteers in the headquarters daily making phone calls and answering phones, entering data, writing postcards, addressing envelopes. Volunteers were out going door to door with candidates, putting out and picking up yard signs and writing letters to the editor. Close to 100 Democratic election judges spent over 14 hours on Election Day making sure that our elections stay fair.
And we should be proud that Greene County voters re-elected Charlie Norr. On election night, Charlie vowed to speak out every day about the things that Republicans are doing in the legislature that are hurting working families.
Now we should all join Charlie in holding the Republican legislature accountable for their ideas that hurt public education, access to health care and voting rights. The ideas that the Republican legislature will introduce in January will be proposals that continue to produce income inequality and contribute to our ever shrinking middle class. By organizing and speaking out- to our neighbors and to our community - we can and will be stronger in 2016.
