Questions & Answers

1. What would you do to increase the number of voters registered in your party?

As Volunteer Coordinator in my first term in office, I organized Voter Registration activities across the county. I register voters in my precinct, support other voter registration activities, and hold voter registration events at my family's church and school.

2. What would you do to help the campaigns of candidates of your party?

The County Central Committee has the power of endorsement to lend official support to candidates. As a member of the committee, I review the recommendations of the endorsement committee and temper those with my own experience and knowledge of the candidates. In addition, I support candidates both monetarily and through phone-banking or precinct-walking. Also, through my church I organize candidates' forums that allow the voters to compare each candidate's position on key issues and make an informed choice.

3. Why did you become a member of this political party?

I became a Democrat because I grew up in a Democratic family. I remain a Democrat because the social justice values I was brought up with both at home and in my church align most closely with the ideals of the Democratic Party
