Ready for the future


The Douglas County precinct caucuses on Saturday were a great success. Old and new friends battled the wind, rain, snow and even a closed Highway 88 to attend. The business of a caucus is primarily to pick a party’s candidate for the general election, and we have our candidate, President Barack Obama. Caucus delegates confirmed enthusiastic support for the President.

Very special thanks go to all the new Democrats for coming out to meet other Douglas Democrats; Katherine Winans and Nancy Downey for keeping the communications flowing; Jo Etta Brown for coordinating and training the temporary precinct chairs; and Melanie Meehan-Crossley, Beth Swanberg, Jan Walls and James Brown (who is first vice chair of the Nevada State Democratic Party) for handling registration. I want to extend special thanks to Ruth Strand for arranging catering and 88 Cups in Minden for the great food and service. I also thank The Record-Courier staff for their help publicizing the caucuses.

Our 2012 campaign has begun. We look forward to seeing all of those who attended on Saturday often during the next ninth months until Election Day. Working together – regardless of party– is what will move our economy and country forward.
