WELCOME to the website of the Charlevoix County Democratic Party. We’re here to help you stay informed, take action, contribute, participate in the political process, and make your voice heard.
Kicking off 2014: February 18 Meet and Greet
Save the date! Gary Peters, MDP-endorsed candidate for retiring Senator Carl Levin’s position, will meet with us at the Boyne District Library, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
Also joining us will be Jerry Cannon, who is seeking to unseat Dr. Benishek in Michigan’s 1stCongressional District.
As you know, both races are critical to the balance of power in the U.S. Congress. Let’s show our support for these great candidates!
Everyone is welcome. The meeting will begin promptly at 5:30, but the room is available at 5:15 so come early, enjoy a hot cup of coffee, and a chat with your friends and neighbors.
Please help us plan light refreshments for this event by letting us know you plan to attend. Email us at email@example.com or call us at 231-753-8411 and leave a message. Thanks!
All politics are local. You’ve heard it before, but it has never been more true. Local gerrymandering and extreme politics in primaries have produced the unthinkable — state and national elections that don’t represent the wishes of the majority. Stay involved between presidential elections — you CAN make a difference. And have fun at the same time.
Call or email and we’ll get back to you. Or click here CALL ME to let us know what interests you.

September 16 Ask the Doctor
More than 70 people attended our meeting at the Charlevoix Public Library, where we heard about the Affordable Care Act.
As you know, the health exchanges are up and running. It’s time to find the best private insurance deal for you. If you’re having trouble getting into the system, it’s because so many people — millions! — are trying to get there at the same time. The exchanges are up 24 hours a day, so try at night, or just wait a week or two. It’s like driving through Charlevoix in the summer — don’t head down Bridge Street in the middle of the day at the half hour!
August 19 Meet and Greet
In early June, we met Mark Totten, candidate for Attorney General, over breakfast.
Then on August 19, nearly 80 people from Charlevoix County had the opportunity to meet with Mark Schauer, Democratic candidate for Governor, and Jerry Cannon, Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 1st Congressional District.
We’re happy to be able to host these events early in the 2014 election cycle, so that voters can make informed decisions when election time arrives.

Fun, Charlevoix County Dems Style
Hesitating? Wondering whether it’s really fun? Here are some pictures of Charlevoix County Dems at Venetian and the Boyne City Fourth of July Parades, where we were cheered by the crowds.
October 14 – Red Mesa Meeting & Margaritas
Next general membership meeting is October 14. We’ll meet at 5:30 for dinner (Dutch) at the Red Mesa in Boyne City. Spend the evening with fellow Dems. Get to know each other! Dinner will be followed by a short business meeting beginning at 6:30.
At the meeting you will have the opportunity to review the work of the executive committee, provide input for the 2014 election cycle, and preview our new by-laws.
Can’t make dinner? That’s fine — join us at 6:30 for the meeting.
Please let us know by email if you’re coming so we can prepare Red Mesa. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our garage sales are legendary. We’re planning ahead for the upcoming mid-term elections. The next sale is scheduled for June of 2014, but you can start getting donations ready now. Give us a call if you have something that requires storage till then.
