Press Release from the Tennessee Democratic County Chairs Association
Our President is coming to visit Nashville!
Join us at a welcome rally for President Obama! We all know that not everyone will get into McGavock High School to hear the President’s speech, so let’s meet outside to show the spirit of Tennessee’s best values.
We’ll wave signs and cheer for the President and rally for the values we honor here in Tennessee: hard work, opportunity, and fairness. Bring your own homemade sign or help place hundreds of “FORWARD: Tennesseans for Obama” signs all around the area to make a great welcome for the President. Come early, any time after 11am, if you’d like to help with placing the hundreds of signs. It’s estimated that the President will be coming in sometime around 1pm and staying in town until after 3pm, but remember this is a fluid situation so times are approximate.
Tuesday night we heard our President reaffirm his commitment to making 2014, a true year of action. The State of the Union address outlined realistic reforms that will help build a stronger middle class, create jobs, and expand opportunity for all.
The President reminded us of one of our core values as Democrats and as Americans—if you work hard and play by the rules, you should have the chance to succeed.
Here in Tennessee we already stand for those values: hard work, opportunity, and fairness for all Tennesseans. And Democrats are standing up: in the State Legislature, in our communities, and right here in Middle Tennessee with grassroots with volunteers, activists and citizens like you.
