Pearl River County Democrats and Federation of Democratic Women Hit the Ground Running

     If you ever wanted to get excited about politics in Mississippi, it’s time.  We have an exciting field of candidates to fill Mississippi’s Congressional seats from all Districts and the Senate.  The next few weeks leading up to the Senatorial Primary on June 5th will be filled with getting our message to all citizens of Pearl River county.  Our first endeavor will be our informational booth at the Picayune Street Fair April 6 & 7.  Volunteers are needed to man the booth on both days.  Please consider taking an hour or two.  It’s fun!                     

     Next up, the Federation of Democratic Women’s Spring Yard Sale will be Saturday, April 14 from 8 – 3.  Volunteers and sale items are needed.  If you can help on either count, please contact Agnes or Ruthie at the numbers below. 

     May 19th brings our Ice Cream Social which will provide the citizens of Pearl River County an opportunity to meet our 4th Congressional Candidate Jeramey Anderson, and our Senatorial candidates as well.  We are also designing a PRC shirt that we can where to our events.  Again, if you are interested, please contact Ruthie. 

     This is an exciting time in Mississippi this federal election season.  And if that is not enough, former Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy has announced his candidacy for the Senate seat being vacated by Thad Cochran.  This candidacy will thrust Mississippi into the national spotlight since Pres. Bill Clinton has agreed to be a part of Sec. Espy’s campaign.  At the recent Mississippi Democratic Party meeting in Jackson, Espy revealed that other high profile individuals will be joining his campaign. 

     Yes, this is going to be an exciting elections season and one we hope will catapult us into statewide wins in 2019.  If you need assistance with Democratic Party issues, please contact Agnes Dalton at 601-746-6020 or  If you need information regarding the Federation of Democratic Women, please contact Ruthie Long at 985-788-1158 or

The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on.  – President Barack Obama
