Indiana Democratic Party 8-17-19 Weekly Radio Address Podcast

Chairman John Zody and the Indiana Democratic Party Weekly Radio Address Podcast:

The municipal elections are our chance to build our bench of candidates for years to come – starting with next year, in 2020. The people you vote for this year will be our future governors and members of the Indiana General Assembly. They create a pipeline of Democrats that leads all the way to the highest offices in the state and nation.

TRANSCRIPT:

This is Chairman John Zody, bringing you the weekly podcast for the Indiana Democratic Party.

As of today (Saturday), we are 80 days out from the 2019 municipal elections. 

Democrats running for local office all over Indiana are out knocking doors, fundraising, and meeting with community members to prove that they are up to the job. They are engaged and passionate, but it still it won’t be enough without your help.

There are 122 cities across the state of Indiana, and Indiana Democrats have more than 840 Democrats running for local office across those cities – and in our many towns.

We must ensure Hoosier voters know that turning out to vote – if you’re eligible to do so this year – means we need people spreading the word about all the great work our candidates are doing in our cities and towns.

Fortunately, the Indiana Democratic Party has a great bench of exciting, diverse, and energetic candidates to lead us to victory this year.

We have more than 300 women running for office including 13 women running to be the mayor of their city. In addition, there are over 140 diverse candidates and about 80 young candidates running on the Democratic ticket this year.

Local elections have the most direct impact on people’s quality of life, so it is vital that the people who hold these offices understand the lives of everyday Hoosiers and can help move them forward. 

Our local elected officials are the ones on the ground keeping our communities safe, maintaining roads, keeping housing costs down, and making sure that our cities are full of healthy, happy people.

The municipal elections are our chance to build our bench of candidates for years to come – starting with next year, in 2020. The people you vote for this year will be our future governors and members of the Indiana General Assembly. They create a pipeline of Democrats that leads all the way to the highest offices in the state and nation.

We know that our Democratic candidates are the ones to lead our cities and towns forward, so we need your help to bring them over the finish line. Go out and volunteer for your local Democrats running for office. Visit indems.org/join to stay up to date on all the opportunities in your area over the next 80 days.

And please follow the IDP on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Simply search INDems – that’s I-N-D-E-M-S on those social media platforms, and follow us to get the latest news about our candidates and what we’re doing to hold our counterparts at the Statehouse and in Washington accountable. 

Thank you for listening.
