Statement from the Chair, Charlotte County Democratic Executive Committee

By Teresa Jenkins, Charlotte County DEC Chair

Last night we lost an extraordinary human being. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a role model, a woman’s rights champion, and an inspiration for many of us. While we remember all that she accomplished during her life and her time on the U.S. Supreme Court, we also despair over what her loss means for the future.

But we should not despair. We must work together to ensure her dying wish not to see her seat filled until after inauguration day is respected. You will be hearing more from us as to actions to take and vigils to attend. But right now, we need all of you to continue the work you are doing to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and protect the legacy of Justice Ginsburg.
