Eric Lipsetts, the first vice president of The Villages Democratic Club who put together the event, said the meeting was important because “this is the opportunity for people who have never heard her before to be introduced to her or for people who heard her before and have them reinforce their opinion, so they’ll be ready to work for her in the course of the election.”

Demings mission is “to make sure that every man, every woman, every boy, and every girl regardless of who they are, the color of their skin, how much money they may have, their sexual orientation and identity, or religion will have an opportunity to succeed.”
