Please join us at one of the four listening posts across Muscatine County. Be ready to listen to your fellow Muscatine County residents and share your stories, opinions, ideas, and vision for a stronger democracy.

Don Paulson, Chairperson of the Muscatine County Democratic Central Committee, said, “This is an opportunity to hear about the hopes and concerns of the people in our community and build a stronger vision of how our community wants the Democratic Party to move forward.”
