Democrats Continue to Show Strong Presence in Lee's Summit
A key commitment the JCDC has made for this decade is re-establishing and solidifying our presence in Lee's Summit. We quickly were able to show results of this strategy by flipping a State House district from one of the most conservative members of the legislature to a smooth win for Rep. Keri Ingle in House District 35. Auditor Galloway also won the city by a comfortable margin which contributed to her landslide victory in 2018. But the work is never done and we are determined to show our presence at major events in this suburb so we can grow for several election cycles to come.
Little things like meeting voters directly at large community events makes a difference because is shows that we are here and that it's ok to be a Democrat, no matter where you live. For the second year, we welcomed citizens to the JCDC booth at Lee's Summit Downtown Days which attracts thousands of visitors over a three day weekend. We signed up dozens of volunteers and registered a number of voters. Thanks to all who participated and we'll certainly be back next year!
