P.S. THANK YOU to everyone who helped make last week’s 14th District Democrats Annual Dinner such a success! It truly was the biggest (and best) political event of the season. A special thank you to our Keynote Speaker, the dynamic Congresswoman Joyce Beatty of Ohio. As anyone who was there can attest, she brought the house down and gave a stellar address.
