On Tuesday, Dec. 14, United States Senator Joe Manchin III will join with Democratic Party leaders for a special Virtual 2021 Roosevelt-Kennedy Celebration. During the Celebration, Gloria Martin from Greenbrier County will receive special recognition in honoring her as one of West Virginia’s Outstanding Democrats of the Year. This hardworking Democrat was selected by County Democratic leaders for her efforts and dedication to the Democratic Party in her county.
Karen Coria, a Putnam County Democratic leader and coordinator of the 36th Annual Awards Celebration indicated that the award was established to recognize local party officials and volunteers whom Democratic leaders feel have contributed most to the party’s efforts.
“Our goal is to recognize these special individuals who have distinguished themselves by contributing to our society, by working within the framework of our democracy and political party system,” Coria said. “The efforts of the honoree demonstrate the importance of the work of every person in affecting the outcome of local, state and national races. These people play a crucial role in the electoral process.”
