JOIN US FOR OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS AND GET INVOLVED

 

First Tuesday of each Month. Dyersburg State Community College- Community Room. 

Hwy 51, Covington, TN 7 PM

 

Tennessee Democrats know Tipton County voters are looking for a clear agenda that provides for economic opportunity. We know that Tipton County voters want a reason to feel good about the future. We know that Tipton County voters want their elected officials to have their back — no matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, or where you live.

Tennessee Democrats are fighting for A BETTER FUTURE for you and your family:

  • Where our children have the opportunity to receive a high-quality public education that fits their vision for a better future including universal Pre-K programs, affordable college, and career and technical education pathways.

  • Where everyone can afford healthcare and medicine and has access to a doctor and a nearby emergency room – Medicaid expansion and no more rural hospital closures.

  • Where a growing economy creates good-paying jobs so that you can all pursue your dreams, educate your children, and live and retire with security.

  • Partnerships between businesses and working families that create good-paying jobs and sustain economic growth and opportunity.

  • Make it easier for businesses to interact with government, make investments, create jobs, hire more workers, and increase wages – and we will hold them accountable if they break their promise to do so.

  • Investment in our kids, our schools, our roads, bridges and public transport systems, our workers, and our businesses. We are committed to strengthening job creation and the economy to build a better future for all.

  • Invest in a rural economy that is built to last.

  • A well-run and fiscally responsible government that is not intrusive, oppressive, or wasteful.

  • Common sense regulations that protect our children, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and our treasured public lakes, rivers, mountains, and caves.

  • The protection of every Tennessean from discrimination or injustice for any reason or at any time on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.

  • We will have your back no matter who you are, what you look like, or where you live

 LIST OF ISSUES

EDUCATION

Democrats support a vibrant and well-funded public education system.

Democrats want the highest standards for every child & school, where every parent is involved and teachers nurture children’s minds.

The global marketplace gets more competitive every day, so we need to expand opportunities for higher education and job training. Democrats are committed to more young Tennesseans with college degrees and more students prepared for budding industries with specific job skills.

EQUAL PAY

Currently women earn only about 77 cents for every dollar a man earns for the same job. Democrats fight to ensure that employers do not discriminate against women by paying them less for the same work.

Democrats want to strengthen our equal pay laws so that women have the tools they need to fight back against pay discrimination.

HEALTHCARE

No one should go bankrupt just because they get sick.

Democrats have fought for the simple idea that everyone should have some basic security in health care. 650,000 Tenneseeans live without medical insurance.  This must change!

We believe all Tennesseans should have access to affordable health care.

ENVIRONMENT

We support a healthy, sustainable environment, not just for the country, but for Tennessee and Tipton County.

DIVERSITY

We support a diverse, colorful Tennessee, where everyone can be who they are and feel at home.  Your choices are your choices.

PHOTO ID TO VOTE

As Republican politicians try to make it harder to vote, Democrats are working to expand access to the polls. Democrats want a system of elections that is accessible, open, and fair — a system that ensures that every eligible person can cast a vote and that every lawfully cast vote is counted.
