Habersham County Democratic Party Meeting
The HCDP will hold our second quarterly meeting on Tuesday, June 6 at the library in Cornelia. Special guest speaker will be Rob Mishler, secretary of Greening Georgia Caucus to the Democratic Party of Georgia. Rob will be discussing the Greening Georgia Environmental Caucus and their mission and goals they have planned for Georgia.

Will also have a special announcement from the Jon Ossoff Campaign. Several party officers attended the GDP Blue School and will report on updates on the GDP Blue School. Plans will be made at this meeting to search for Democratic candidates for the 2018 Habersham County elections. Will also be electing members of the Habersham County Board of Elections and Registrations at Tuesday’s meeting.

County Election and Voter Registration Board. Nominations
We also will be holding a special election to vote on our representative to the Habersham County Election and Voter Registration Board. Nominations will be taken from the floor to fill this position.

Rally for Healthcare
Doug Collins voted to strip over 20,000 residents from our 9th district of their healthcare while approving a $800 billion tax break to the rich. It is clear that Representative Collins does not represent the larger need of the citizens of Georgia’s 9th so the Lumpkin County Democrats and FRIENDS have organized a ACHA (House Healthcare “Plan”) rally at Collins office in Gainsville on Tuesday, May 30th from 10am to 12 noon. Collins office is located at 210 Washington Street, NW, Gainesville, GA. Just off the downtown Gainesville square.

All Democrats from the 9th District are welcome to join this Rally for Healthcare. Bring your own sign to let Collins know how you feel about his decision to exclude thousands and thousands of Georgians from affordable healthcare.
