Dear Editor:

Tuesday's primary election brought huge wins for women throughout Union County and for people who believe in true Democratic values everywhere.

We faced an uphill battle every step of the way that started with removing us, as incumbents, off the party line and even escalated to court battles simply to be allowed to run for re-election. After many, many years of service to our County Democratic Committee, it was certainly an eye-opening experience to find opposition within our own party trying to silence our voices.

Our victories would not be possible without the residents who turned out in historic numbers to vote in a primary election. Together, we successfully fought to keep our values and our leaders local.

The residents in the communities we lead, can always count on us to never back down from a fight, and to always fight for them.
