3rd Monday Meet and Greet, June 19th with Candidate for Congress, Vanessa Adia was another newsworthy event!

RECAP:  Another month, another great meeting for the Wise County Democratic Party!  We had solid attendance for our June 19th social, and once again reporter, David Talley, from the Wise County Messenger showed up and then published our story in Wednesday’s paper (thank you, David!).  Vanessa Adia, candidate for U.S. Congress (District 12 vs. Kay Granger), traveled up from Fort Worth to hear voters’ concerns and share her ideas to improve health care, public education, and rebuild the middle class.  It was very exciting to have a candidate for Congress visit Wise County.  Vanessa will probably visit us again before the 2018 election, and if you would like to work on her campaign, please contact WCDP Chair Janet Akers-Amos through the Contact Us page on this website.

Several hundred dollars were donated by local Democrats to Vanessa’s campaign Monday night, but if you would like to donate, you can do so online at her campaign website https://www.vanessaadia.com/.



The Wise County Democrats will host US Representative (District 12) Candidate, Vanessa Adia.  She will share her reasons for running for office at this time and her plans for the district.  Please invite your friends who would like to MAKE AMERICA SMART AGAIN.  This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and voice your concerns with the candidate.


The foundation of her entire campaign and position on issues is to give every person in our great nation equal access and opportunity to pursue liberty, health, and happiness by tearing down the barriers to the freedom that allows individuals to be their best selves and live their lives to the fullest.  – Vanessa’s website and Facebook page


Note:  Wise County is divided between two US congressional districts currently represented by Republicans Kay Granger (District 12) and Mac Thornberry (District 13).  The gentleman who is running for Mac Thornberry’s seat will be visiting Wise County soon.  Click here for a map of Texas districts (zoom in to see ours).
