Welcome

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.

Join One Of  Our Working Groups

Ok – we all know that this last election was bitterly disappointing. But, we have a few things to be proud of here in Charlevoix County.  First of all, when comparing 2014 results to 2010 results there was improvement in the democratic vote in Charlevoix County.  In almost every race, the Republican vote went down while our vote went up!  We are making progress.  Secondly, we had an amazing group of volunteers.  We actually had more volunteers in 2014 than in 2012 – a presidential year.  And because of that, we knocked on more doors, made more phone calls and covered more shifts in the office than ever before.  We are growing as a party.  So, let’s keep it going.  We need to continue building a strong foundation for our Charlevoix County Democratic Party (CCDP).  Here are some ways you can get involved.

We need people to join our four standing committees:
1. The Membership Committee – working to grow and sustain our party membership.  
2. The Political Organizing  Committee –  focusing recruiting local candidates to run in 2016.
3. The Fundraising Committee – critical to our ability to function in 2016.
4. The Youth Outreach Committee – finding way to get young people involved in the political process.

We also have two openings on our Executive Committee, which is the group that sets the direction of the CCDP for the next two years.  I know that you have the talent, energy and time to be a valuable asset to one of these committee – join us!
Thanks and let me know where you can contribute, Kris Busk, Chair Charlevoix County Dems 231.675.8752

Local Politics

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 to let us know how you would like to help.
