This will be a short newsletter. At this moment—probably like you—I am watching, white-knuckled and all, the outcome of the Georgia election, animated by MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki (see Leslie Jones’ twitter feed and #KornackiThirstcontinues). Tomorrow, we’ll learn just how desperate Trump and his acolytes are to betray 81 million Americans who clearly made their choice of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Anything can happen, it seems.
Just a heads-up though: we hope to begin a series of Zoom sessions in February that will investigate Knox County voter data from the 2020 election, strategize local elections, and more. We will send out an email once the dates/times have been set.
While we’re on the topic, if you’re interested in running for your village or council seat—or another position down the road—please let us know! We need good Democrats to run for office so that we can begin building for the future. Write us at info@knoxcountydems.org. (Deadline for petitions to run for a partisan position in 2021 is February 3!)
