CULLMAN – The Cullman County Democrats, alongside the North Central Alabama Young Democrats (NCAYD), are hosting their monthly meeting tonight, with special guest, Alabama State Rep. Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham. Todd represents District 54 in downtown Birmingham.
NCAYD will hold officer elections at 6 p.m., and the Cullman County Democratic Party will hold its meeting following NCAYD at 6:30. Those who are interested in joining NCAYD are encouraged to attend the 6 p.m. meeting and stay afterward to hear from the county party and Todd.
Both meetings will take place at the Cullman County Democratic Headquarters at Cullman Democratic Headquarters 415 Second Ave. SW in Cullman.
“We are very happy to have Representative Patricia Todd join us,” stated Roger Duke, vice-president of NCAYD.
“It's time to have Democrats on that ballot,’ said Duke, as he explained why he asked Todd to come to Cullman.
Duke linked Todd’s story to the story of the Alabama Democratic Party.
“This woman has fought against all odds to be where she is. She was told by many she couldn't do it, not only because she is female but a proud member of the LGBTQ family,” said Duke. “She is a very strong woman. We are very happy to have her join us to discuss the troubles she faced running for office, and how we can improve locally as a party.”
