Message from the Chair

I’m going to make this brief, because not only is March petition-passing time, we have a congressional district that might look very different when the stakeholders are finished with it! It keeps a committee chair busy from dawn til dusk.

But I wanted to take time to send a shout-out to TCDC members who are carrying petitions for us. In a world where social media has just about replaced face-to-face socializing, members who perform this task are doing more than collecting signatures: They are our ambassadors, using each door-knock as an opportunity to speak with Democratic voters across Tompkins County. Door-step conversations can address misconceptions about who we are, what we believe and why we feel so passionately that the Democratic Party does the best job of representing the values and concerns of everyday Americans.

These priceless connections are only possible because of the commitment of our members.
