Vote to save democracy and stand up for Democratic values in Williamson County
There’s a lot more at stake in the 2022 elections than holding on to the Democratic majority in Congress.
Here in Williamson County we have a chance to rebuild political power by electing Democrats to state and local office. The ballot is made up of more than 30 seats in 2022, from school board to County Mayor, State House Representatives and Congressional Representatives. Democrats will be running for office up and down the ballot and we have a chance to elect people who will stand up for equity and inclusion, science, democracy and work to improve our communities. These seats can carry more weight than congressional elections, as people in these positions make impactful decisions about school funding, public health policies, development, infrastructure and so many more issues that impact our lives on a daily basis. This is our chance to make our Democratic voice heard in Williamson County.
