July 2019 Newsletter - Mon Dems

July 2019 Newsletter

It’s a challenging time in our country, and it’s going to take all of us, working together, to turn things around. Local and state elections matter as much as national ones. Are you ready to get involved?

If you haven’t yet been to a Mon County Democrats meeting, or you haven’t been for a while, join us! 2020 is fast approaching, and primary campaigns are starting to get rolling. Many hands make light work, and many hands are needed to elect Democrats up and down the ballot.

Mon County Democrats kicked off summer with the Fourth of July Parade and our summer cleanup of Morgan Run Road, which we’ve officially adopted. Lots of other events are coming up, so see the calendar of events, and watch your email and social media for these and other opportunities to get involved.

Finally, if you’re a Democratic elected official or candidate for office in Monongalia County, or if you’re helping plan a local event for a Democratic candidate for state or national office – let us know about your events, and we’ll be glad to share the information in this newsletter. The deadline to submit information is the 15th of each month. Contact susancasewv@gmail.com.
