THE WEEK IN REVIEW
The holiday season is in full swing, and that means festivals, parties, and parades! On Tuesday evening Thomasina shared holiday cheer with the Greene County Democrats at their holiday gathering in Linton City Park, and joined the Spencer County Democrats at their Christmas party in Chrisney on Thursday evening.
On Saturday, Thomasina started the day at 9:00 AM marching with the Owen County Democrats in Spencer, where she received the surprise of an early Christmas present: a “political candidate” Barbie doll that looks just like her!
Thomasina's next stop was in Rockport, marching with the Spencer County Democrats, followed by a visit to Perry County for Tell City's Christmas parade.
Thomasina wrapped up the evening lighting her “Hope in 8” holiday wreath, which will be on display in downtown Spencer throughout the holidays.
DID YOU KNOW?
To quote Charles Dickens, this is a season “when Want is keenly felt, and Abundance rejoices.” Sadly, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that over 15% of IN 8th Congressional District families with children under 18 years old live below the poverty level, while the United Way of Central Indiana estimates that 38% of Hoosiers struggle to afford the basics.
As a lifelong resident of our district, Thomasina understands the hardships our less fortunate families endure. She stands with workers and their families to improve wages and living conditions for all.
