News from the Chair
I know that many of you are returning to a changed world. It can be overwhelming. But I also know this. We in the Keys live in a very unique and close knit community. Neighbors help each other without asking your political views. Food and hugs are shared without reservation. We realize that we are all in this together. We will survive and be stronger for it.
Be sure to make those initial calls to your insurance companies and get your claims moving forward. Take lots of pictures before you start clean-up. Be careful to not get injured and don't be afraid to ask for help.
The Keys Dems have cancelled all our September events and want to make sure our local leaders are ready and able to get back to our cause. I have been reaching out to our Board members and Precinct leaders and if you have not heard from me, please shoot me an email and let me know your status and if you need some help.
We have work to do, but we must take care of our families and homes and jobs first.
I will be in touch, now that I have internet service again! Yippee, it's the little things.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
We support criminal justice reforms to reduce the number of non-violent persons incarcerated in prison and allow them to support their families; live productive lives and contribute to our diverse Keys economy.
