Elected to serve were: County Chairperson Teri Bleuel; Vice-Chairperson Steve Gore; Secretary Michael Fulton; and Treasurer Linda Welty.
"This is an exciting time for our party," said Bleuel, "and I am honored to serve. We are energized and ready to move Brown County forward by electing dedicated and hardworking public servants."
Bleuel thanked retiring officers Jim Gredy, Mary Ann Walker, Evelyn Kent and Maxine Bailey for their years of hard work. "They have built a strong foundation for us all, and we will continue to build on it."
Meetings of the Brown County Democratic Central Committee are open to the public and are held the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Brown County Office Building in Nashville.

A Blast From the Past
Truman's Words Ring True
From The New York Times - September 20, 1964 - Harry S. Truman, a man not known for mincing words, had this to say in advice to Hubert Humphrey:
This September, that advice will be 46 years old.
Now, in 2013, family farms are being replaced by corporate agribusiness. American homes are being foreclosed. Labor unions have shrunk to a shadow of their former selves. Workers' wages stagnate while corporate executive bonuses, made possible by taxpayer bailouts, have become stratospheric. Jobs are shipped overseas while unemployment rises. School funding is cut. Health care reform is beaten back by corporate insurance special interests. The cost of every utility rises while the infrastructure to provide it decays. Centralization of government and its privatization decreases services to people while enriching the friends of officeholders. The concentration of wealth in the hands of a very few cuts away at the middle class. And George W. Bush's Supreme Court says corporations can spend as much as they want to influence elections, as if corporations were people.
In the middle of it all stands the Republican Party, backed by those corporate interests, saying "no" to every attempt to bring some fairness, some balance, some change of direction to this culture of greed and "me first" entitlement.
It's time we listened to President Truman. Bipartisanship is seen by Republicans as weakness - nothing more than another opportunity to manipulate our government to benefit themselves and their friends.
It's time for Democrats to remember that we stand for the people, including and especially those who can't afford to buy their right to be heard. They are counting on us to stand up for them. They are counting on us to fight.
It's 2013, Harry, and we're not bipartisan.
It's 2013, and we're Democrats.
If the opposition doesn't care about working together for the good of all, we'll do it ourselves.

Voter Registration is Open
IMPORTANT: Voters should be aware that the Bureau of Motor Vehicles has revoked the drivers licenses of many Indiana citizens whose names differ from their Social Security records. Remember, Indiana still requires citizens to show some form of ID (most often a drivers license or state-issued ID card) to vote. Since the State of Indiana seems determined to do all it can to disenfranchise its citizens, be sure to check with the Clerk to see that your registration is still on file. If your drivers license has been cancelled because of a mismatch with Social Security records, you should also consider contacting the Indiana Civil Liberties Union, which is challenging the action of the BMV. The ICLU telephone number is (317) 635-4059. GUARD YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE!
