Representative Dembowski Attends Democratic National Convention

State Representative Nancy Dembowski

Democrat State Representative Nancy Dembowski, of Knox, is one of six-thousand delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

She said First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech Tuesday night was emotional.

“It was just an incredible speech by the First Lady,” commented Dembowski. “It was just so sincere and so emotional I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. We saw some other just incredibly good speeches. The whole convention seems to be, or least much of Tuesday night, was about inclusion and how the party stands for everyone.”

Dembowski said that one thing that stood out during Tuesday night’s activities was discussion on women and equal pay for equal work.

“The law that was passed, the Lily Ledbetter Law, is an illustration of that and she spoke in person,” said Dembowski. “That was amazing for a woman to have the courage that she had to do what she did which will benefit so many women for the rest of their lives.”

Former President Bill Clinton spoke during the Convention last night along with Elizabeth Warren. Tonight, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will make their acceptance speeches.

Dembowski was asked what she hopes to take away from the Democratic National Convention.

“I hope to take away the experience of being here,” she said. “The process, how it works–I found it very, very inspirational and I’m just really pleased that I had the opportunity to be here.”
