TNDP CHAIRWOMAN MARY MANCINI RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT FOR THE KICKOFF OF HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

“Tennessee is a better and stronger community because of the cultural, artistic, and economic contributions of its diverse people. As we kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, the Tennessee Democratic Party honors the strength and significant contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Tenensseans. We recommit to supporting and electing Hispanic and Latinx public servants who wish to represent the great state of Tennessee up and down the ballot.

This year, for the first time ever, we’re in the position to send a member of this vibrant community to the state house. When elected in District 97, the Unstoppable Gabby Salinas will represent the people in the district well by standing up for Medicaid expansion, fully funded public schools, and an economy that works for everyone. We look forward to Gabby’s historic election to the Tennessee State House.” – Mary Mancini, TNDP Chairwoman
