We at Northeast Tennessee DSA are proud to announce our endorsement of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States. Our endorsement comes from a common interest in key issues: the demand of Medicare for all Americans, the promotion of an organized and self-determining workforce, and support for a Green New Deal to make our economy both fair and sustainable. The people of East Tennessee have been responsive to these ideas in the past. We are proud that in the 2016 Democratic primary, Unicoi, Washington and Carter counties went to Bernie Sanders, and that support has only grown since.
Our members look forward to partnering with the Sanders campaign locally to help the people of Northeast Tennessee move forward on these issues. We hope that such partnership will bring renewed vision and confidence to Tennesseans to assert meaningful control over our own lives, and we look forward to continuing the work of grassroots movement building to make that dream a reality. It will take time and effort to win that struggle against the wealthy elite, but we move forward together with the Sanders campaign, undeterred. The path before us is clear: We have a future to win.
