Close to 30 people came to May’s district 2 meeting, which was held at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. June Jones, from Organizing for America, and Linda Haney, KCDP Chairperson, spoke. A potluck dinner was served; additionally, a district secretary and sergeant-at-arms were elected. Voter registration efforts were discussed, and a committee to address this issue was formed, headed by Bernice Curtis and Linda Cartwright. Rick Staples challenged everyone to bring someone new to the next meeting so work could continue to build the Democratic party in district 2.
We had a wonderful and well-attended convention and welcomed many new members and leaders. Thank you to all who stepped up to run!
Congratulations to our new officers….
Chair, Linda Haney
Vice-Chair, Cameron Brooks
Secretary, Mary Wilson
Treasurer, Jerome Miller
I want to thank Knox County Democrats for allowing me to be Chair the last four years, it was an honor. I also want to thank the hundreds of folks who served and volunteered with the party, you guys ROCK!
I am looking forward to supporting Linda Haney and her team in the next two years!
