2/25/2020 Candidate Filing Opens For Statewide, Legislative, County Offices & Party Committeepeople

run4officeSt. Louis City’s 7th Ward needs a Democratic Party Committeeman and Committeewoman who work together to organize the ward. Absent that, it needs either a Committeeman or Committeewoman who shoulders the burden alone, as I did for seven years. Please be that team or that person who does the work- organizes an open ward organization, sponsors candidate and ballot issue forums and surveys, holds voter registration drives and GOTV canvasses. Currently, that is not happening because I resigned and the current Committeeman is only interested in going to other people’s meetings and campaign events, selfies, and scheming to obtain higher office. I will write more on this later.
