OC Democratic Party to make plans for National Tax Day March

Special to The Leader

The Orange County Democratic Party will be holding a meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, February 27 at Roberts Restaurant, 3720 West Park Ave., in Orange. Plans will be discussed for organizing a vigil in solidarity with the National Tax Day March scheduled for April 15.

“Americans, of all parties agree that our elected officials should focus on jobs, the economy, on national security and on access to affordable healthcare. In addition to these issues, Democrats are also focused on education, inequality, workplace safety, fair wages, environmental issues and progress in technological access,” Orange County Democratic Party Chair Deborah Mitchell said. “If every hard-working American and immigrant pay taxes, why shouldn’t the President of the United States? Everyone should pay their FAIR SHARE”

Anyone wanting to become candidates for the 2018 elections are invited to attend. Participants will begin receiving instructions on beginning basic organization of campaigns.

Questions may be addressed to the Orange County Democratic Chair, Deborah Mitchell, at (409) 882-9620, (409) 779-1744 or Email:   orange34texas@gmail.com.
