Weekends of Action (Jan. 13 & 14 and Jan. 27 & 28)

Iowans across the district are ready to get politically involved!  In order to re-engage 2016 caucus goers and invite them to the 2018 caucuses, the IDP is helping organize weekends of action in every county in the district!  If you're interested in hosting or organizing an action, please follow out the following  FORM.  

 Join activists from across Iowa as we meet on January 6th to energize and prepare for the upcoming state session. The afternoon will be filled with guest speakers and panel discussions on a variety of topics concerning local and state issues. This is also a great way to network and meet with other activists in the state.”  For more information, visit the event page HERE.

Putting People First

Over 60 Winneshiek Democrats enjoyed the music of Maritza at the Aug 27th Garden Party. They also heard comments from Supervisors John Beard, Mark Kuhn, and Dean Thompson. 
Maritza is a popular quartet both locally and nationally. Democrats will hear three of the talented musicians playing the melodies of Eastern Europe. Its website describes some of its repertoire as “ twisting rhythmic line dance tunes from Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia and Greece.”
