Thank you for electing me to be your new Chair of the Marathon County Dems!

The fall elections are over. We certainly did not get the outcomes that we worked hard for. Yes, it is discouraging. If you are like me, you are tired of losing. Keep in mind, the fight is far from over. It is easy to say Democrats are not good listeners and that we should have seen this coming. I prefer to think that far too many people would rather take words at face value and not do the research. Believing in the magic belongs in our holiday season, not our politics. We must remain committed to working on what we value: public education, good jobs, health care, equality for all, and our environment; to name a few.

Shortly after we were elected, Nancy Fisker (first chair), Kody Hart (second chair) and I met and talked about goal setting; we decided that going forward we will be inclusive and keep strong communication with our party members. We have exciting events in the works; so stay tuned!

We have many committees already in progress that you can join. We will get them listed and you can sign up if you choose. In the upcoming months, we hope to add more committees. We want your voice to be heard. We hope you will find your niche! Help make the Marathon Dems and Friends the strongest and best group out there.

Above all, please come; be engaged in the spirit of friendship and shared values!

Yours in the fight,

~Nancy Stencil
