Warwick Democratic Committee's Annual Fundraiser 2021
The Warwick Democratic Committee held its annual fundraiser at the Landmark Inn on Sunday, July 25th. 50 donors attended and were inspired by a rousing Keynote presentation by Terry Anderson, the American journalist who was held captive in Lebanon by Shiite Hezbollah militants for over 6 years. Anderson is a veteran of the US Marine Corps, a decorated journalist, and a lifelong Democrat. He currently resides in Greenwood Lake.
Local resident Joan Tirrel and also the Latino Democrats of Orange County were presented with awards for their outstanding contributions to the Democratic Party in 2021.
The Warwick NY Democratic Committee would like to thank all those who took the time to sign the petitions needed to get our candidates on the November 2021 ballot.
We collected nearly three times the minimum number needed to put our candidates - Jennifer Echevarria, Steve Rubin and Greg Galluccio onto the ballot. We have a lot of campaigning to do between now and November. Let's get out the vote!
Our committee had a great month of March. In conjunction with petition gathering, we had an Irish Soda Bread sale which raised money for our committee to support candidates. We collected signatures at Stage law Firm giving voters opportunity to meet our three great candidates. Volunteers were able to obtain almost 3 times the number needed for our candidates to get on the Ballot.
During our second weekend, we conducted a food drive and collected food and money donations of $500 which will be distributed to the local food pantries.
The generosity and hard work of our committee members makes me proud to belong to this great group.
Chair, Warwick NY Democratic Committee
