County Conventions:

Congratulations to fellow Stonewall Democrat, Susie Prueter, on her election as the 2nd Vice-Chair of the Charleston County Democratic Party! Way to go Susie!

If you are aware of other fellow Stonewall Democrats (or Stonewall Friends) that were elected to County positions, please contact Susie with that information (prueter@bellsouth.net).

Democracy for America Training:

Want to know the “ends and outs” of creating a winning campaign? Want to know how to better serve our local friends who are running for office? Then please consider attending the Democracy for America Training Academy being offered at The College of Charleston on April 12th and 13th. The cost of the training has been reduced to only $30 due to sponsorships by several local organizations, including the SC Stonewall Democrats! Additional scholarships are available if needed – contact Mike Schwarzott (mikeschwarzott@comcast.net) for information.

State Convention:

The State Democratic Party Convention will be held in Columbia on May 3rd. Several Counties still have available Delegate and Alternate Delegate openings. We need as many Stonewall and Stonewall Friends in attendance at the Convention to ensure openly GLBT people are elected as Delegates to the National Convention. Several Stonewall members are running for these hotly contested delegates positions. So, let’s get out and support them!

If you’d like to attend the State Convention, contact your local County Democrattic Party and sign up as a Delegate. Also, please let us know that you will be there by contacting Keith Riddle (KRiddle595@aol.com).

Be on the lookout for the unveiling of the new South Carolina Stonewall Democrat website – Coming Soon!
