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.  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 to let us know how you would like to help.

Every four years is when we elect Township officials.  It’s time to get some Democrats on the ballot in our County! The Charlevoix Dems will help anyone who is willing to run. Think about running for Township Trustee. It is at this level of government that you can have immediate impact on issues directly affecting you and your neighbors. Again, let us know and we will help you get started. This is also the time when we elect all our County positions, from Clerk to Commissioner. Are you willing to run?

 Contact me and let’s talk. The filing deadline for Township and County races is April 19. As in other election years, the Char Dems will be visible and active: Parades, Stroll the Streets, Candidate events, our garage sale.  As it gets closer to the election we will open an office and stage our intense Get-Out-The-Vote effort – making phone calls, knocking on doors, putting out our signs. The Charlevoix Dems are an amazing group.

 I know that I can count on each and every one of you to step up, get involved and work together to elect Democrats in 2016!
