Congratulations to Our Successful Democrats Starting 2023 Terms; Mercer County Democratic Convention
Dear Fellow Democrat, Happy New Year! Congratulations to all of our successful elected Democrats who have begun terms of office in 2023!
Today, we honor and celebrate the life and legacy of civil rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His powerful message of hope will forever be nationally enshrined in the words of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. We best honor his lofty vision and ideals, as today we celebrate and participate in a “Day of Service,” remembering his words, “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” Together, Let’s Keep Hope Alive!
