Port Orange – Volusia Young Democrats
April 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
April Monthly Meeting
Please join us as early at 6pm where you can order dinner and drinks before our meeting begins at 6:30!
This month our guest speakers will be Dr. Katie Tripp who’s running for Florida House District 25, and Neil Henrichsen who’s running for Florida House District 27.
Katie: “For the past ten years, as the Director of Science and Conservation for the Save the Manatee organization, I have worked at the local, state, and federal levels to advocate for our natural environment in Florida. All too often, I have felt that my concerns and those of other citizens, have fallen on deaf ears. I am not a person who complains. If I encounter something I don’t like or agree with, I actively work to change it. I don’t believe in “politics” or that elected office is only for the wealthy and privileged. I do believe in public service, hard work, and leading by example, which is why I am running for this office.”
Neil: “I have been a tireless advocate for working people and families as a lawyer as well as through involvement with the Volusia County Democratic Party and Florida Democratic Party. As a concerned father, husband, and community-spirited activist, I will roll up my sleeves to get the job done for the people. I will bring a strong voice to Tallahassee advocating for a progressive agenda to make the lives of working people and families in Volusia County better. We will all be better off when people who work earn enough to support a family, when everyone has an opportunity for a quality public education, and when our environment is safe and clean.”
