Local Politics

All politics are local. Local gerrymandering and extreme politics in primaries have produced the unthinkable — state and national elections that don’t represent the wishes of the majority.  Get involved — 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 to let us know how you would like to help.

We are also looking for a Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteerism is the backbone and strength of the Charlevoix County Democratic Party.  Volunteers are the most important resource we have to help us accomplish our ultimate goal of electing Democrats.  The Volunteer Coordinator works to match the needs of the party with the skills and interests of volunteers.  Email us at democrats.charlevoix@gmail.com

Past Events:

Bergman Rally

Roughly 110 people, representing 11 different District 1 counties, attended the Rally outside the Perry hotel today as Congressman Bergman was inside speaking to the Chamber of Commerce.  At least another 30 of “ours” were inside at the luncheon.  Thanks to all for your energy, enthusiasm, and great signs!

Marches Around the World!

Thank you to the millions of people around the world who, on January 21, came together to raise our voices. But our march forward does not end here. Now is the time to get our friends, family and community together and MAKE HISTORY.
Join us in launching a new campaign:  10 Actions for the first 100 Days.  Learn More

March in Traverse City:

Here are a few things you can do right now to turn this energy into action.
1.  Join our Legislative Watch group.  This is an email group of Charlevoix Dems who are willing to call and/or send emails to both our State level representatives and our Federal representatives about impending legislative action.
2. If you haven’t heard of the Indivisible group, check out their website.  This group was started by former congressional Displaying aides and they provide effective, practical steps that can be taken to influence our representatives.   To give you an idea of their reach, last night I was on a MoveOn/Indivisible training/planning phone call with 25,000 participants.  Visit the Indivisible website and sign up for their action alerts.
