TKC MUST READ!!! CHAIRMAN WRABEC OF JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATS SLAMS PREZ TRUMP CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE!!!
Local Democratic Party leadership has suffered setbacks in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fundraisers, meetups and organizing sessions have been delayed as the stay-at-home order takes hold.
Missouri State Rep. Joe Runions enduring COVID-19 hit home for Jackson County Democrats as they ramp up criticism of Prez Trump despite the Commander-In-Chief enjoying a polling uptick.
Take a look at debatable links from both sides of the aisle:
Bloomberg: Trump’s Handling of Coronavirus Approved by 60% in Gallup Poll
Fox News: Biden holds 3-point edge over Trump in White House race: poll
CNBC: Trump wants ‘packed churches’ and economy open again on Easter despite the deadly threat of coronavirus
Accordingly, in a recent newsletter, the leader of the largest group of local Democratic Party loyalists takes aim at the President and launches an important condemnation that we've highlighted and think deserves consideration as part of the local discourse . . . Checkit:
A Statement from Chairman Wrabec
As I write this letter to our Democratic Committee, we are all concerned for the health of our State Representative and Committee member Hon. Joe Runions who has been diagnosed with the CoronaVirus. This hits home for all of us.
Joe is dedicated to his family, the IBEW, Labor, the Democratic Party and is a friend to all. While this global health disaster is touching everyone worldwide, I have kept waiting for the President of the United States to have a Fireside Chat to reassure our country and have some hope. This is not a Democrat or Republican Virus as this Virus is Nonpolitical and it will strike and kill no matter your political beliefs.
"In January of 2020, President Trump had information from his National Security Council that told him 165 million people worldwide could die and the US Economy could be affected by $3 trillion dollars from the CoronaVirus. President Trump’s response was, “IT’S A DEMOCRATIC HOAX!” Tell that to the families that lost loved ones and can’t have a funeral."
Many of our Democratic processes for Caucuses and Delegate Selections are now different than it has ever been in History. Many of our Democratic Candidates and Organizations have had to cancel meetings, fundraising events and door knocking because of this Virus. Our own Democratic Committee is having to change dates for our meetings and fundraising activities including the annual Truman Gala. Our office is closed but we will be working remotely.
I’m calling on all Committee members to be Empowered and Share the Democratic Energy that is from within and under our control to achieve the Goals we all believe in. Trust your Democratic thoughts and act on it. We need you now!
May God Help the United States of America and the World!
Paul J. Wrabec
