After 4 long years of living through a presidency like none other, we all look forward to a new beginning - a president who cares about the citizens of our country, who will do whatever necessary to stop the spread of a deadly virus. He will listen to the science, encourage mask use and work to get vaccines available. I am so excited that both houses of Congress are Democratic and that they quickly passed bills to help the average person affected by this pandemic.
However, our local governments are controlled by Republicans. For too long (longer than I can remember), there have been no Democrats on our Town Board. The lack of transparency is glaring, the lackluster response to the state mandates to the BLM movement troubles us. We hope to have a strong Democratic slate this year and will make inroads. Our committee will also support county Democratic legislative candidates and County wide candidates.
This year we have seen BLM marches and rallies in Warwick as well as a Biden/Harris car parade. The Warwick Democratic committee has come out of the shadows. We have a voice.
