FCDP defends neighborhood Democratic leaders

The Franklin County Democratic Party has taken a stand for the 141 neighborhood Democratic leaders who voted unanimously to endorse John O'Grady for Commissioner.

As John said in remarks after the debate today, "This was never about whether or not there should be a primary. It was about who the party endorsed in this race."

The Party was prompted to respond by negative campaign mailings and campaign statements from Mrs. Lazarus' campaign. According to the FCDP, the party's hardworking volunteer leaders were referred to a "a small group of politicians," "part of the party machine," and "party bosses."
