Indian River County Democrats Get a Jumpstart on 2018 Campaign

Vero Beach, FL, April 27, 2017– Today, the Democrats of Indian River County kicked off their efforts for the 2018 campaign and beyond by launching a new web presence and embarking on countywide canvassing.

Democratic Chairwoman, Cate Wenzing emphasized the urgency of starting early given the consequences of this next election.  Wenzing said, “Faced with an extreme agenda at the national level, this election is especially important for the working families and seniors of Indian River County.”

Wenzing further noted, “The recent assaults on healthcare, the environment, and education, along with President Trump’s proposed budget that favors the wealthy at the expense of working Americans, have a direct effect on the residents of our county.”

Examples of these impacts were presented earlier in the month at a county-wide listening session hosted by the Young Democrats of Indian River and attended by Commissioners Solari and O’Bryan, as well as a representative from Erin Grall’s office.

Wenzing said, “We hope our new website can provide an accurate, up-to-date source of information on these and many other issues that the citizens of Indian River County care about.  We are working hard to give a voice to democratic values.”

In addition, she said that Democratic volunteers would be fanning out across the county talking with residents and listening to their concerns,  “We want to develop proposals that reflect the specific needs of our local residents.”
