Indiana Democratic Party 6-20-20 Weekly Radio Address Podcast

Chairman John Zody and the Indiana Democratic Party 6-20-20 Weekly Radio Address Podcast:

Although we are turning a corner on seasons, we have remained focused on the November election this fall and our desire to see vote-by-mail strengthened through once again having “no fault” absentee voting. Vote by mail works – evidenced by the fact that nearly ten times the number of Hoosiers voted by mail in the June 2 primary than during the primary in 2016.

TRANSCRIPT:

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

As we officially enter summer, Indiana Democrats are looking back at an unprecedented spring. We remember all those lost to and afflicted with COVID-19 and continue to encourage safe health practices for all Hoosiers.

Following the movement of the state’s May primary to June 2, we held our first-ever virtual Hoosier Hospitality Dinner and State Democratic Convention. In doing so, we want to thank all of our state convention delegates, as well as Democrats from around the state for their flexibility during this time. We proudly nominated former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel as our next Attorney General of Indiana, and we will send a historically diverse delegation to represent us at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Although we are turning a corner on seasons, we have remained focused on the November election this fall and our desire to see vote-by-mail strengthened through once again having “no fault” absentee voting. Vote by mail works – evidenced by the fact that nearly ten times the number of Hoosiers voted by mail in the June 2 primary than during the primary in 2016. We continue to believe this method of voting is the safest way to do so, not only to protect voters, but also to the many poll workers being protected across the state who help voters on and before Election Day.

We will continue to push for these conversations and hope you will join us in supporting that effort. We must ensure the right to vote is expanding, and expanding safely, because the issues facing our state are too important to accept anything less.

We must break the supermajority in the House of Representatives and pick up seats in the Indiana Senate. Woody Myers and Linda Lawson for Governor and Lt. Governor have an effective message that can get through to Hoosiers with your help – and it’s time we end the disgraceful tenure of Curtis Hill and elect Jonathan Weinzapfel Attorney General. To hold our counterparts effective in Washington, DC, electing new Members of Congress and getting Joe Biden in the White House can ensure the days ahead of us are better than the ones passed – filled with constant controversy and division from the Trump White House.

Only by doing these things together will we move our state and nation forward. Sign up to join us at www.indems.org/join, and we’ll get you plugged in to an effort this year. 

Through focusing on wages, public education, accessible, affordable healthcare, voting rights and equality – we can get the job done by leading with our values.

Thank you for listening.
