Democrats in Laramie County say, "We ain't dead yet!"

This editorial cartoon on WyoFile illustrates the dilemma faced by badly outnumbered Dems in WY. But we Dems aren't ready to North Koreanize our state just yet. Read the comments on WyoFile:
From Joe Corrigan and Wendy Soto, Laramie County Democrats Grassroots Coalition:
Please join us at a “Meet the Candidates Open House” sponsored by the Laramie County Democrats Grassroots Coalition at the home of Joe Corrigan, Treasurer, 3626 Dover Road, Cheyenne, on Sunday, June 24, 1-5 p.m.

We've all heard fellow Democrats say, "I wish we had more people running on our side of the ticket," or, "I wish our party were stronger." As Wyoming Democrats we are accustomed to playing the role of underdog. However, in these trying times, when ultra conservatives would like to destroy the moderation which is the hallmark of Wyoming politics, we have no choice; we must become stronger NOW.

The truth is the Wyoming Democratic Party is strongest when we all get involved. We must back our candidates, volunteer our time and energy, donate a little of our hard earned cash, and give our candidates the encouragement and support they need to survive the campaign and more important, to win elections. One step in the right direction is to join us on June 24 to meet candidates and raise money for the Laramie County Democrats Grassroots Coalition. All money raised will go toward providing resources and support for our candidates. In return, you'll meet these impressive candidates, shake hands with some hard working elected officials, get to know energetic fellow Democrats, enjoy delicious refreshments, and have a good time!

We are suggesting a minimum donation of $25 for this event, but all donations will be greatly appreciated. If you can't attend the Open House but you want to show your support for the Laramie County Democrats Grassroots Coalition, please send your contribution to LCDGC at PO Box 2986, Cheyenne, Wyoming, 82003. We hope to see you on June 24!!!  
Please RSVP by calling Joe at 630.6192 or Wendy at 635.2609 by June 18, 2012.
