Join us for the 16th Annual FDR Dinner featuring Congressman Joaquin Castro

The Summit County Democratic Party is thrilled to announce Congressman Joaquin Castro as the keynote speaker of the 16th Annual FDR Dinner to be held on Sunday, October 25th, at Todaro's Party Center in Akron.

Castro at the DNC!

Named by as one of the top 50 politicos to watch in the nation, Joaquin skyrocketed as a leading national Democratic voice after his appearance with his twin brother Julian at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. A member of the House Armed Services Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and an advocate for immigration reform, we look forward to hearing Congressman Castro’s motivating message to the battleground – Ohio!
