Haskell County Democrats in Action

Haskell County Democrats held a successful fundraiser Saturday night at Stigler, with almost 100 people in attendance at the Kiamichi Career Tech center. Sen. Richard Lerblance (above) described the lack of leadership from the Republican House over the past two years, and encouraged a high voter turnout November 7. Haskell County gave Brad Henry 60% of their vote four years ago, and this year's support should be even stronger.

I had the pleasure of meeting Doyle Hamm of Keota, a World War II veteran who spent 208 days as a prisoner of war after being shot and left for dead. He's a solid Democrat who will turn 82 the day after the election. Let's give him a great birthday present with a Democratic sweep! He and all our veterans deserve our thanks and support.

County officers Kim Risenhoover, Glen Kates and Sally Barnett and a host of good volunteers put on a great event. Gale and Pat Maxwell (right) are two of the great Democrats who make things happen in Stigler. Keep up the good work, folks!
