Tenth Dems: Thank you, Candidates

The Tenth Dems, the organization of Democrats throughout the Tenth Congressional district, has released this letter to all the Democratic candidates in the April 2 election:

Dear Friend,

Democracy takes a lot of work. And, in a lot of ways, keeping it strong can be pretty hard.

It's especially difficult to put yourself out there as a candidate. While it's never been easy, being in the public eye in today's political climate takes a lot of courage.

Thanks to everyone who threw their hat in the ring in the April 2nd elections so voters could have choices and public offices could be filled. Win or lose, you deserve a lot of credit--and our thanks.

We're so glad to have people like you dedicated to playing such an important part in making our democracy work.

This is not where our thanks ends. One of our favorite get-togethers has been the Tenth Dems Candidate Appreciation event.

We're in the process of planning another one for May. If you'd like to help plan this event, please contact us.
