Marion County Democrats Support Stronger Unemployment; Womens’ Issues

Marion County Democrats attended their party caucuses this week. Anita Martin, Marion County Democrat chairperson says some of the items the party will support will be strengthening unemployment compensation and simplifying conditions needed to confirm employment discrimination; the rights of women to make their own reproductive health choices and to give birth as they choose – whether that be in a hospital setting or with a doula or midwife. She adds that it was relatively low-attended, and would like someone from the townships of Melcher-Dallas, Indiana, Washington, Pella 2 and 3 to call her at 218-4699 to get those townships represented. Martin says the next step is to get the platform put together, then the county convention is March 8.
