We Are In The Home Stretch

by Adam Gutcheon, DTC Chairman

Many of you reading this message have had your political awakening in the past four years, as the malignance of Donald Trump has made plain the stakes of politics. If that’s the case for you, now is the moment your political involvement has been building up to. Now is the time to work like hell. It’s been an exhausting four years, but the next four will be a thousand times more calamitous if we do not succeed.

My own political awakening occurred in 1994, when Republicans won both houses of Congress and Newt Gingrich was elevated to Speaker of the House. Much of what we now take for granted about the Republican approach to power was invented or perfected by Gingrich. Newt flamed out quickly; four years later, he was gone. But his legacy remains to this day. When Joe Biden is sworn in four months from now, the worst will be over (for the moment, anyway). But Trump, too, will leave a malign influence behind him. Others will pick up his playbook.

While we have about five weeks of intensive campaigning ahead of us, the hard work is just beginning. It will take a concerted effort over many years to rebuild our democracy and keep at bay the illiberal forces arrayed against it. Will you join me in that work?

What can you do?

Attend our DTC Meeting on Thursday, October 1, 7:00 p.m.

The Windsor Democratic Town Committee will meet this Thursday via Zoom. We will hear from our elected officials and candidates, DTC subcommittees, and speakers Umaru Saleh and Marc Bradley. Dr. Saleh is a longtime WDTC member and Marc is chair of CT for Biden. They will discuss what we each can do to make sure Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th president on January 20th, 2021. Please join us!
