Barry Walker, of Bethpage, was elected the new Chairman of the Sumner County Democratic Party this past Saturday.
“I’m excited to be leading SCDP because as we enter into a midterm election season, I know there are many people in Sumner County who are as enthusiastic as I am about protecting and preserving our Democratic values,” said Walker.
SCDP held its biennial reorganization Saturday at the Sumner County Administration Building, where new Chairman Walker shared some thoughts on the state of Tennessee politics.
“In Tennessee there is still a persistence to disenfranchise voters, punish struggling families by making life more difficult than they already are based on a child’s school grades, relax regulations on drug suppliers which could result in the type of tragedies recently experienced by Tennesseans after receiving tainted injections, and to make a gun the quick solution to a problem rather than a last resort. We can do better than that as a society and I believe the Democratic values we adhere to can improve our county and our state,” said Walker.
A new slate of Executive Officers was elected, too. Kaye Kemnitz, of Cottontown, was elected Executive Vice Chair. Lexie Smith, of Gallatin, was elected Treasurer. Eric Hall, of Hendersonville, was elected Secretary. Zach Young, of Goodlettsville, was elected Communications Officer.
Regional Vice Chairs were also elected by each region at the reorganization convention. Bonnie Fussell and Gordon Meadors will serve as the Portland RVPs. Larry and Darlene Hodges will serve as the North Sumner RVPs. Dragan Kirjas and Tiffany Rivera will serve as the Gallatin RVPs. Maria Brewer and John Lankford will serve as Hendersonville RVPs.

Join us for a fun time watching “The Company” starring Chris O’Donnell and Michael Keaton.
“Handsomely mounted, epic in scope, and featuring an outstanding cast, TNT’s The Company might restore some much-needed luster to the image of the Central Intelligence Agency (then again, perhaps not). Based on Robert Littell’s popular historical novel of the same name, the show commingles real and invented characters as it traces the CIA’s role in several major events, from the earliest days of the Cold War through the collapse of the Soviet Union, with particular attention given to the division of Berlin into East and West in the 1950s, the anti-Communist uprising in mid-’50s Hungary, and the disastrous Bay of Pigs operation in the early ’60s.”

Koch Brothers Exposed is a hard-hitting investigation of the 1% at its very worst. This full-length documentary film on Charles and David Koch—two of the world’s richest and most powerful men—is the latest from acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed, Rethink Afghanistan). The billionaire brothers bankroll a vast network of organizations that work to undermine the interests of the 99% on issues ranging from Social Security to the environment to civil rights. This film uncovers the Kochs’ corruption—and points the way to how Americans can reclaim their democracy.
