Democrats host barbecue,
VALDOSTA — Food, fellowship and festivities are on the agenda
for th[e] Lowndes County Democratic Party meeting this week.
The event will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 6, at Mathis
Municipal Auditorium, 2300 N. Ashley St., according to an
organizational press release. Tickets are $25 each and may be
purchased from any Lowndes County Democratic Party committee member
or at the door.
Health insurance should be for financial security,
including the 600,000 Georgians currently uninsured,
and the Affordable Care Act is helping make that happen,
said Liz Johnson at her general campaign
kickoff meeting in Valdosta.
Injuries, illness, old age, accidents, fire: insurance can help with
all of those.
25,000 veterans and 7,000 of their spouses would be covered by Medicaid expansion.
It also helps if there are local hospitals, but several rural
Georgia hospitals have closed recently.
We need a new insurance commissioner: Liz Johnson.
Both statewide and Lowndes County
nonbinding questions will be on the primary ballot May 20th,
so remember to turn out and vote in the primary.
Everyone in Lowndes County who takes a Democratic primary ballot can vote on these questions.
That’s the same date as the special election
for Lowndes County Commission District 5,
so be sure to vote for that, too, either
in your precinct on May 20th
(you can find your polling place online through Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page)
or at the Board of Elections in early voting April 28 – May 16.
