The Knox County Democratic Party was out in force during the weekend of June 22 and 23rd, outreaching to community members at the Kuumba festival and PrideFest 2013. Dozens of new volunteers signed up to be a part of the party, as well as registered to vote. Thanks to all who made this past weekend a success!

Much thanks and appreciation goes out to the 4th and 9th district Democrats for their road cleaning efforts.
The 4th District had its Adopt – A – Road cleanup of a two mile section of Northshore Dr. on Saturday morning, June 8th, 2013. Cindy Taylor, from the Shopper News, was present to cover the event. During the two and a half hour cleanup we collected 18 bags of trash and other loose scraps (such as old highway signs!) Eric Mcanly took photos to distribute on social media to the “PickinUpTennessee” project sponsored by Scenic Tennessee (#PknUpTn). Several passing motorists voiced their approval of our efforts.
Twice per year the KCDP 9th District “South of the River Democrats” led by Jim Sessions and Debbie Helsley, clean up a well traveled two mile area in South Knoxville. This Adopt A Road project entitles the group to their own permanent identifying road signs on both ends of the project. After the morning of work, the group eats lunch together at a near by restaurant. Several of the KCDP Districts have Adopt A Road projects which provides publicity for Democrats as they show their concern for the community.

Over 20 people attended the 3rd/4th district democrats meeting at the West Knox Library on Tuesday, May 28th to hear Cameron Brooks, KCDP Vice Chair speak about the history of United Campus Workers organizing efforts at UT Knoxville and elsewhere in the state. A representative from OFA told us about the upcoming OFA activites, including the May 30th National Day of Action on immigration reform. A lively discussion about union organizing, education, and issues facing the KCDP followed. We also celebrated the efforts of Lorraine Hart as former 4th District Rep and 3rd/4th District Democrats Club organizer. A big thanks to Lorraine!
