AndyBenedettoWe’re in the final stretch of what seems like a very long election cycle. With Election Day in sight, there are a few important things to keep in mind.

First, we have to finish strong. When you receive this Newsletter, there will be very little time left in the campaigns, but it is a crucial time, so dedicate yourself to reenergizing, recommitting, and finishing the job.

Second, there are plenty of activities and events in the days ahead. Some of these are campaign-related, but there are two that I want to highlight that are Marathon County Democratic Party-related. There will be an Election Night Watch Party on November 8th at Sconnie’s starting at 7. The large Northwest room is reserved for us. Please show up to have some fun.

The other event is our November Membership Meeting on the 17th. This is an important one as we will be nominating and electing our leaders for the next two years.

Finally, it’s worth keeping in mind that elections are just a pause in the political process. Regardless of outcome, the same things that we were organizing and working for before the election need to continue to be fought for after the election. Nothing is ever settled—not civil rights, not peace, not women’s rights, not environmental justice, not racial justice—everything must be committed toover and over, generation to generation. This is our continued fight.
