To the Editor;
The Marion Democratic Town Committee responded to the 2020 election by supporting Democratic causes and candidates across the country. The election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris is a big win for all of us, but their and our work is just beginning.
2021 is an important year both locally and nationally. We need to fight those states which have bills ready to make voting harder for everyone. This already has happened in Georgia, where mail-in voting, the number of voter boxes, and even supplying water to voters in line have been restricted in recent legislation. Our committee also is working along other states to abolish the electoral college.
In our own state we have issues with an unfair tax structure that favors millionaires, while low to moderate income families struggle to pay for child care. As a committee, we recently voted to support the “We the People Act,” which will eliminate corporate contributions in elections. Our Facebook page, named “Marion Democratic Town Committee,” shares interesting articles and posts relevant to our Democratic processes. Please “Like” it to stay up to date. Please get involved and contact your legislators about issues of importance to you.
If you would like to join the committee, or just want to get involved, please feel free to contact Sharon Matzek at 508-748-6905 or email@example.com and we’ll respond as quickly as possible.
