South Country Unites Celebrates Inauguration Day


On Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021, members of South Country Unites, SCU, displayed yard signs in front of their homes to commemorate this very special day. They wanted to thank those committed, honest, hard working citizens, across 50 states and the District of Columbia, who made democracy happen. The members of SCU dedicated their display…

• “To all people who spoke up for justice and integrity

• To candidates for offices big and small, who believed that they can make a difference

• To campaign staffs, who in the time of COVID-19, planned and instituted a new, safer way of campaigning

• To petition carriers, door-knockers, phone and text bankers, letter writers – those who felt strongly that the best candidate must win

• To Boards of Elections in thousands of counties across our country who justly implemented voting laws, set up polling places, distributed ballots, hired and trained workers, and who counted and re-counted millions of votes under pressure

• To poll workers, who believed enough in free and fair elections to work 8 or 12 or 16 hour days with face masks and gloves, risking serious illness, to assure that each eligible citizen voted

• To the poll watchers who volunteered to assure that voters were treated fairly and laws were upheld

• To judges and public officials who sought to assure fair and free elections

• And to the voters, 161 million of us who made a voting plan and implemented it to assure that our voices were heard”

“The Members of SCU, THANK YOU! We honor your commitment and your hard work. May we all continue to work to support our fragile, 233 year old experiment in democracy. May we support President Biden and Vice President Harris as they and we, the people of the United States, address the difficult problems that lie before us.”
