Yellow Dog Democrats

Pearl River County met its goal of 12 new members into the Yellow Dog Democrats.  This means a steady income from that membership.  As promised, the State Party will share 40% of the dues collected from our local committee.  Even though the contest is over, any new Yellow Dog Member will be credited to us, and we will receive money back on all current and future members.  I hope you will consider supporting your Mississippi and Pearl River County Democrats by joining us as a Yellow Dogs.  There are many options to join.  If you are interested, contact Agnes.
