The Democratic Black Caucus of South Carolina will host “A Community Conversation with Deval Patrick” on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm at My House Restaurant Bar and Grill located at 7205 Two Notch Rd, Columbia, SC 29223.
Tuesday’s event will mark the first official campaign stop in South Carolina for the former Massachusetts Governor since officially entering the 2020 Democratic presidential race. The program will include an opportunity to meet the candidate followed by a moderated conversation with local community members, democratic activists, and minority business owners.
“This is a great opportunity for those who may not be familiar with Gov. Patrick to come out to meet with him and see where he stands on the issues,” says Johnnie Cordero, Chairman of the Democratic Black Caucus of South Carolina.
Cordero goes on to say that the cornerstone of our freedom is having a choice. “I said it before and I’ll say it again. The more, the better. The fact that we have an unprecedented amount of democratic candidates running for President is not a hindrance or a disadvantage to the party, it’s a well-needed exercise in democracy. Democratic voters now have a drove (a group of donkeys) of candidates with an array of policy ideas that run the entire length of the political spectrum. This means our democracy is still healthy, and this is especially important now, that our basic principles of freedom are being threatened by a president that does not respect or value the democratic process.”
