To The Point: MDP Chair Brandon Dillon on post-election

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Decision 2016 is over, well at least the election part is, but what happened? What was the outcome? Why was the outcome?

Rick Albin sat down to talk with the Chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party Brandon Dillon.

“I’m going to paraphrase the great labor organizer Joe Hill, ‘don’t mourn, organize.’ Take a little time but I think that time is over now, a week, regroup, get your boots back on because we have a lot of work to do.

“Protesting is a healthy part of democracy and I think it’s an outlet for people who are frustrated but we’ve got to take the energy that people have, people who are frustrated may not participate in the this election. People who didn’t really understand the consequences need to come together, we need to all unite,” Dillion said.

Dillon continues to talk about the next battle facing his party.

“2018 is going to be a critical year in Michigan. It’s going to be an important year as a referendum on the Trump Presidency so we don’t have a choice. We get up, dust ourselves off, we get back to work, we come back stronger, that’s what I hoping  we’ll be able to do.”
