Videos: LCDP BBQ 2017-07-06

Lowndes County Democratic Party meetings are always informative and even inspiring. In May, we had Corey Hull, of the Valdosta-Lowndes Metroplitan Planning Organization (VLMPO), who updated us on public transportation.

At our July Annual BBQ we were joined by a number of local Democratic candidates who shared with us why they were running for office. We were also joined by Sarah Todd, Democratic Party of Georgia Vice Chair for County Parties, and Claudia Collier, Democratic Party of Georgia Greening Chair. You’ve already seen a few pictures from the BBQ. Here are videos from that fine day, July 6, 2017.

  • Dr. Amanda Hall from Baytree Animal Hospital,
  • Dr. Tom Aiello from the VSU History Department,
  • Ashlie Prain from the VSU Anthropology Club,
  • and Michelle Williams from the Pixel Fund Rescue.
