“Democrats have a lot to be proud of,” said J.D. Rice, Lowndes
County Democratic Party chairman.
“After all, Social Security
(Franklin Delano Roosevelt), Medicare and Medicaid (Lyndon Baines
Johnson) and the Affordable Care Act (Barack Obama) were all passed
under Democratic presidents.
The LCDP advocates for our health,
especially considering South Georgia Medical Center is a mainstay of
our local economy. LCDP also advocates for public transportation so
our residents can get to work, to the benefit of our businesses, as
both the chamber and the development authority also recommend.
LCDP’s platform includes equal and impartial justice under the law
and leaving the earth as safe, beautiful, and majestic as we found
it, so LCDP continues to advocate against the Sabal Trail pipeline and for solar power.
Help us make Lowndes County a more beautiful and better place to live for all.”
