Meet-the-Candidates A Big Success - Roane State Campus, 20 March 2014 PDF Print E-mail

In keeping with our philosophy that our job is to expose you to candidates so you can investigate and decide who or why to vote for them, the Loudon County Democrat Party hosted a Meet-the-Candidates program at Roane State Campus in Lenoir City on Thursday, 20 March 2014.

During this event, we met and listened to six Democratic candidates: two local, two federal, and two state.

The local candidates were Earlena Maples for District 2-A Loudon Co Commissioner, and Joe Kneiser for State House District 32.

The federal candidates were Terry Adams and Gordon Ball for US Senate (Lamar Alexander's seat). During the program, they only had 7 minutes to speak, followed by a brief question and answer session. However, Adams and Ball will both will speak again at our Bean Dinner on April 25th, so please join us at 5:30PM at the Visitors Center in Lenoir City. You will have the opportunity to ask them questions and learn more about their positions on various issues. We have also invited Larry Crim who has declared his candidacy for US Senate, and Gary Davis who is seeking support for this seat as a write-in candidate.

During the Meet-the-Candidates program, we were also honored to present US candidates Cheri Siler (State Senate 7) and Representative Gloria Johnson (State House 13). In her race for State Senate 7, Cheri Siler is facing a Libertarian opponent as well as the incumbent Stacy Campfield. And we were very happy to learn that Gloria Johnson is the #1 most sought-after Republican target to remove from office! Both Siler and Johnson are very qualified Knox-district(s) candidates who we should/could financially support - let's get more Democrats in Nashville!

Thank you to all these candidates for participating in our program.

Stuart Starr - New Chair of the Loudon County Democratic Party PDF Print E-mail

At the Loudon County Democratic Party meeting on 16 January 2014, our past Chair, Sam Bledsoe, stepped down and the Vice-Chair, Stuart Starr, accepted the position of Chair of the Loudon County Democratic Party (LCDP).

When Sam Bledsoe agreed to take the Chair position in March of 2013, we knew he would only be able to work in this role for a limited time due to other commitments. We thank him for stepping up, and wish him all the very best in the future.

Stuart Starr is fairly new to the LCDP, but has graciously accepted the role. He is a long standing Democrat, however, and is asking for local Democrats to help him at this new task.
