August 2021

Hey, Democrats!

We are VERY excited about Sullivan County Democratic Party’s Reorganization August 14.

Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Hendrell Remus is joining us to meet people during registration, masked and at least 6 feet away, and then to speak briefly before our reorganization begins. This is a GREAT opportunity for all of us Democrats in Sullivan County to get to know our state party chair and other TNDP officers who come with him.

 Our reorganization is August 14 at Bluff City Boardwalk and Pavilion AND on Zoom. In order to vote at the reorg, you must be registered to vote in Sullivan County and be a Democrat, or at least Democratic-leaning. If you’re attending in person, registration begins at 10:00 and ends at 11:00. You will need a photo ID. I will send out a separate email with instructions for registration if you want to attend on Zoom. 

If you’re still unclear about what reorganization is, it’s your chance as an SCDP member to elect the people you want to represent you as SCDP officers and executive committee members. It’s your chance to have a real voice in your local Democratic Party.

Reorganization is also a chance to meet those of us who have been your leadership the last two years, to meet those who want to be leaders the next two years, and to volunteer to become a part of SCDP leadership yourself. It’s really the nuts and bolts of the Democratic Party.

Reorganization is every two years, and it’s always fun! You get to eat, you get to vote, you get to be with other local Democrats, and you get to experience that special energy of being with like-minded people!

Please join us August 14 in person or on Zoom to support your local party and to get to know Hendrell, your TNDP Chair! We had already planned an outdoor event because of Covid before this latest surge, and we will still follow all CDC guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety. 

SCDP’s next meeting will be immediately after the reorganization at the Pavilion and on Zoom. We had planned for our September 20th meeting to be at our headquarters (2530 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol); it looks like we will probably have Zoom meetings for the foreseeable future. I’ll let you know for sure in the September newsletter. Maybe a miracle will happen by then and the unvaccinated 65% around here will all stop prolonging and worsening this pandemic by getting their vaccines and following CDC guidelines. Where there’s life, there’s hope.

Speaking of hope, hoping to see you on the 14th!
