Written for a 2015 Thunderclap campaign in promotion of Mississippi State Senate Democratic candidate Cristen Hemmins.
Cristen Hemmins is many things: a small business owner, a mother of three, a community leader, and now, a reliable and relatable candidate for Mississippi District 9 State Senate. As our next state senator, Cristen will prioritize adequate funding for Mississippi public education , ensuring that our teachers and schools gain access to the resources they need to help our kids succeed. This is Cristen’s proposal for the future, and voters are jumping aboard. To date, we’ve raised over $85,000 and more than 50 campaign volunteers have stepped up to help make sure we get out the vote and elect Cristen on November 3rd. The question is, when that day comes, where will you be?
As Mississippi Democrats, we’ve been through a lot. The gerrymandering. The electoral losses. The candidates who promise one thing, only to do the opposite in public office. But together, as committed Cristen Hemmins voters, we can turn the tides and offer District 9 a fighting chance for a brighter tomorrow. Your participation in this Thunderclap will help remind your friends, your neighbors, and your colleagues that together, we can win this election.
