Brown County Democrats are Back, and Better Than Ever

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Welcome Back Party! Nearly 100 of us Brown County Democrats gathered on a stormy night in June to celebrate our wins together in-person for the first time in 15 months. Members were vaxxed, relaxed, and ready to party 🎉

There was much to celebrate! In the fall, volunteers made thousands of phone calls to voters and distributed 30,000 yard signs to help win the state for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. In a few short months, the Biden Administration has already vaccinated close to 70 percent of adults and will cut child poverty in half in the U.S.

During the Spring elections, we helped Dr. Jill Underly win Brown County by ten points—and the state by 15—in her State Superintendent race. Plus, we supported more than a dozen local progressives in running for office.

Through it all, membership in the Democratic Party of Brown County grew by 40 percent!

There were many new faces at our Welcome Back Party and many familiar friends who we‘ve missed over the past year. We had the privilege of wishing our favorite State Senator, Dave Hansen, a happy retirement after 20 years of service in the Wisconsin Legislature.

And we welcomed our newest Democratic leader, State Assembly Representative Kristina Shelton, who got us fired up to re-elect Democratic Governor Tony Evers in Fall 2022!
