Florida Keys Democrats Values
NEWS FROM THE CHAIR
Hello Keys Democrats!!!
What a year it has been! We have been recruiting and rebuilding! We held out first Precinct Leader training class last Saturday in Marathon. These folks were enthusiastic, asked good questions and are ready to get to work. We will be holding 2 more classes in the near future, but we need a break. The Holidays are here and we are planning to celebrate!
We have planned a Party for our December meeting at the Blue Room onDecember 11th. We have invited the Women’s March folks, NOW, ACLU, League of women voters, and I think I’m forgetting someone! We will be recognizing and celebrating the work of all these fine groups! Come join us, we will have Holiday appetizers and a cash Bar…6-8 PM
The folks east of the 7-mile bridge liked that idea as well and we are planning a joint party with the Middle Keys and Upper Keys Dems along with MKAN and UKAN! Somewhere in Islamorada or Tavernier onDecember 18th. More details to come real soon. So mark your calendars.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am grateful for all the new friends I have made and the folks who have joined with me to turn this county BLUE in 2018!
The Florida Keys Democrats are guided by the principles of social, environmental, and economic justice. Our values reflect our belief that The United States is a prosperous and modern country that will leave no citizen behind. We are committed to the freedoms and rights guaranteed to every citizen in the Constitution.
We support a Keys economy that allows our citizens to raise a family, own property, pay their bills, and play in our unique islands while living full, complete lives.
We believe affordable, high-quality healthcare is part of the American promise that grants the most access, to the most people, at the lowest price.
We support a healthy, sustainable and vibrant environment that is the bedrock of our economy. A healthy environment equals a healthy economy.
CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM
We are committed to reversing Citizens United and McCain-Feingold, legislation that allows large anonymous donations by corporations.
We believe in equal treatment for all persons regardless of: sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, or religion.
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.
DEFENSE AND BORDERS
Florida Keys Democrats believe in strong borders and a strong defense. We support the Constitution and laws of the United States of America. We support a strong defense that allows us to conduct our daily lives free from the fear of oppression or terrorism.
We support immigration policies that are fair to the US citizens and non-citizens who contribute to our unique economy. We support a fair and open path to citizenship for those who want to become US citizens.
Working to keep the Keys...the Keys.
128 miles of Blue ocean, Blue sky, and BLUE voters!
