What’s Happening in June

Make sure to mark your calendars! We’ve got some great events coming up this month.

Three Star Dinner – Saturday June 22nd at 6pm
We’ve reserved a table at this year’s TNDP Three Star Dinner in Nashville. The Three Star Dinner is the annual fundraising dinner for the Tennessee Democratic Party, underwriting the upcoming year’s programs and projects. This annual celebration attracts national speakers and brings Democrats together to get fired up for the work ahead!

This year’s keynote speaker is Senator Kyrsten Sinema. We’ve got eight open seats at the table so if you’re interested in attending, send us a message to let us know!

June Party Meeting – Saturday June 29th at Noon
Our June party meeting is set for Saturday June 29th at noon. Come out and hear from Jordan Wilkins, the newly elected chair of the  Tennessee Democratic Chairs Association! We’ll talk ideas for our community and plans for growing our local party. 

We’ll meet at the Municipal Auditorium at 110 Elk Avenue South – Fayetteville, TN 37334. If you’re on Facebook, please share our public event for this here!

As always, let us know if you have any questions on any of these events or anything else going on with our local Democratic party.

We hope to see you at one of those events in June!


Weekly Update for April 25th

Welcome to the weekly update newsletter for our Lincoln County Democratic Party!

Each week, you’ll get an update on what’s happening in our community. You’ll also see upcoming events and know what action you can take right now to make our community better.

Focus on Legislation – Vouchers

After being deadlocked 49-49 on the ESA school voucher bill, our state House passes the voucher bill 50-48.

In an unusually long vote that involved much arm twisting from the Republican leadership, Rep. Jason Zachary, of Knoxville, flipped his original no vote to a yes vote. Our own county representatives – Marsh and Tillis – also voted yes.

The voucher bill also passed in the Senate 20 – 13 with Senator Reeves voting in favor.

It’s now headed to conference to work out the differences between the two bills. That means the House and Senate will vote on it again. And it means we have to keep calling and emailing our reps – Senator Reeves, Representative Marsh, and Representative Tillis.

Head here to find their contact info.

A Look at the Research – Young Voters

CNN’s last town halls focused on questions from young voters. The reason is clear – the youth vote will have an even bigger impact in 2020 than it did in 2016.

For a good look at what 18 to 29 years old think about the current political landscape, check out the new research from Harvard here.

Upcoming Events – TNDP Elevate Summit

2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former Obama HUD chief Julián Castro will be the keynote speaker at the TNDP Elevate Summit 2019 on May 17-19! The Summit will include 3 days of workshops, meetings, speakers, networking, and more to elevate Tennessee Democrats and the values that we share.

We’ve got a group from our community headed to Murfreesboro to learn and connect with other parties around us. If you’d like to attend, please let us know by Monday April 29th!
