The following is NOT an endorsement of any campaign, only a post informing of an upcoming candidate event in Columbus:

Friend,

We hope you will join us and other supporters for the opening of the Tomlinson 2020 Columbus Campaign Headquarters.

RSVP to join us on Saturday, November 2 at 10:00 AM ET at 1870 Midtown Drive, Columbus, Georgia to help us officially launch the winning effort to send Perdue packing!

 Teresa got her start in politics in Columbus, where she ultimately won a four-way race for an open mayoral seat with 68% of the vote. She became the first woman elected as Mayor of Columbus and the first mayor re-elected in a contested contest since the city’s consolidation in 1971.

Teresa knows how to win tough elections and knows how to govern well. She has what it takes to beat David Perdue and fight for all of us in Washington, D.C. Join us on Saturday and help us flip Georgia blue in 2020.

We look forward to seeing you at our Campaign HQ grand opening.

Thank you,

—Team Tomlinson

On Monday night, July 29, at approximately 9 pm, white supremacists plastered neo-Nazi posters on and around Temple Israel on Wildwood Avenue. Choosing not to give publicity to such a vile cause, we’ve instead opted to express our support for Temple Israel and our Jewish friends here in Muscogee County. 

The Muscogee County Democratic Committee stands together with the Columbus community in support of our Jewish brothers and sisters, and with Temple Israel. Ours is a loving and inclusive city and we will allow NO space for anti-Semites, Nazis nor white supremacists.

“Community is society with a human face – the place where we know we’re not alone”

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

Temple Israel is not alone in Columbus, Georgia. Please count on the Muscogee County Democrats as friends and allies against hatred and ignorance.

Laura Walker, MCDC Chair
