It is with a heavy heart that we enter 2017. We cannot, however, allow this disappointment to define us. We have to dust ourselves off and look towards the important elections which are coming up; the Mayoral race in Cape Coral, the Florida Senatorial race and the Florida Governor’s race. Now more than ever we have to work for a Democratic outcome in all races.
It is most important that we work harder to stem the tide of the Republican wave. We have to explain to our fellow citizens that we offer a better future for them and that we keep their interests and concerns foremost in mind, that we do hear them. The bitter lessons we have learned in 2016 must insure our commitment to the voters with a clear, positive message. They may not have listened in 2016, but they will soon realize with the broken promises of this new administration, that the Democrats do stand behind them and will provide them with the alternatives to the problems so many of us face.
The Democratic Party of Lee County wishes you all a safe and prosperous New Year.
Yoseph Tedros, Chair
