Democrats to host video
The Arcadia Democratic Committee will be showing a video – “Koch Brothers Exposed” at their regular meeting on Tuesday, May 29 at 7 p.m. at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Main Street, Newark in the Guild Room.

The Koch Brothers are plutocrats --  oil and gas billionaires, ready to buy any congressman, fund any lie, fight any law,  bust any union, despoil any landscape and shirk any tax burden.

Specifically they have pushed voter ID laws which are designed to keep Democrats from voting, started a campaign to privatize Social Security and other activities which are against the best interest of a majority of Americans from both political parties.

We invite any interested individuals to attend. If you have any questions feel free to call Liz Indick (Arcadia Democratic Committee Chairperson) at 315-331-4879 or via email at  HYPERLINK "mailto:elzind@rochester.rr.com" elzind@rochester.rr.com.
