The Newaygo County Democratic Party (NCDP) invites all interested people to its first general meeting of 2019 on Monday, January 14, from 6pm to 7pm. It will be held at Spanky’s Pizza, 1042 W Main Street, Fremont. A social “meet & greet” will be held prior to the meeting at 5:30pm.
“Last year our Newaygo County community members expressed loud and clear what their concerns are: affordable health care without precondition restrictions, funding our public schools so all of our children receive quality education, keeping Michigan’s environment free from contamination, and assuring livable wages that will support families are just a few,” states Teresa Kpachavi, Vice Chair of NCDP.
“Our schools, healthcare and environment are being weakened through new laws passed by our current administration. These changes are happening at both the state and national levels and will negatively impact the quality of life for ourselves and our children for decades to come. Education and action are the keys to keeping changes in check and to assure multi-partisan input that speaks to the concerns of all people,” added Sally Wagoner of the Communications Committee.
“We invite community members to tell us how the Democratic Party can support their needs and concerns in our political system, both locally and nationally. We will work together to hold our representatives accountable to the people, and not put personal or corporate interests above the needs of our communities,” added Teresa. “Newaygo County had one of the biggest voter turn outs in recent history last November. Keeping up that momentum through education and action is needed to making sure our voices are heard and our votes counted.”
The Newaygo County Democratic Party holds monthly meetings on the 2nd Monday of every month. For more information visit the website at www.newaygocodems.org; call 231.709.9007; or sign up for e-news, firstname.lastname@example.org
