Greetings, fellow Madison County Democrats! I wish I had a nickel for every time someone said, “What’s that website address for the Madison County Democrats again? I forgot!”
So, in effort to improve communication and visibility of the website, I’m turning it into a blog site from which I can send regular updates about meetings, events, and timely topics. See how it works? If you clicked the link in your email or on Facebook, it took you to the website. Welcome!
Please check out the upcoming events listed below, each with a link out to the corresponding Facebook event if you’d like to RSVP. I hope to see you all there.
