March to Fix the Fund

CCDCC MSEA CEA

 

Since 2012, $1.7 billion has gone into the Education Trust Fund from casino revenues, but it hasn’t increased funding for schools and students as intended. Instead, the same amount of money that was already going to education was redirected to other areas of the budget. That means all of the additional gambling revenues have resulted in no change to the education budget.

We want the General Assembly to pass the Fix the Fund Act to make sure that money goes where it was intended – to increase school funding. This would result in an additional $500 million in school funding annually, a significant step toward closing the $3 billion gap.

Join the March to Fix the Fund on March 19th. A boxed dinner will be provided, as well as busses departing from Huntingtown High School at 5pm, sharp. Sign up here by March 12th to ride the Calvert bus and pick your food option.

The Calvert County Democratic Central Committee has had a small group working on issues development for the last year. The goal of the Task Force is to provide Democratic candidates background knowledge on a range of issues which may be of importance to their constituents, but may not be in their specific background. They determinedly avoid taking a stance on any of these issues so that the candidates have the room to develop their own positions and speak to how they feel about the issue.

Throughout the first half of the year the Issues Task Force focused on the issue of addiction with an emphasis on the opioid epidemic. By identifying the stakeholders on the issue in Calvert County, interviewing them, building background through research, and coalescing those pieces together, the team was able to put together a document which summarizes the problems, the attempts at solutions in the past, and the hypotheses for solutions in the future. From here, candidates can read the information and come to their own conclusions about the extent of the issue and the solutions they will propose

In September, the issues team made the final interim report on addiction. Members of the Women’s Club very kindly agreed to take over the maintenance of the addiction issue to keep the report and files current for the candidates moving forward. This was accomplished through those Club representatives joining the task force along with two representatives from the Riverside Club. That addition helps provide freedom to the team to pursue additional issues, while also bringing new thoughts and perspectives to the team going forward. The Democratic Central Committee is very appreciative of both clubs joining this important effort.

In October, the team had grown to the point that it was feasible to handle two issues concurrently. They began by tackling affordable housing and then added education. While both of these issues are very broad in their own right, both could play very large roles in the 2018 elections in Calvert County. The Central Committee is working hard to ensure that Calvert Democratic candidates are well-prepared for any questions voters may pose.

CCDCC Geberal Assembly

We’re nearly through the first month of the 2018 General Assembly Session. There was cause to celebrate early with the General Assembly over-ride of Gov. Hogan’s veto for the Maryland Healthy Families Act. But there’s still a lot of work to be done. So far, this session has seen bills filed on issues concerning: rape survivors and kit testing, automatic voter registration, protections for public information requests, and many others. We’re working to keep you informed on the decisions that will affect your life. Check out a summary of some of the legislation presented so far to stay current on the issues you care about most. And be sure you know who your representatives are and how to get in touch with them.

CCDCC Democratic Club

The Calvert Democratic Club is reaching out to registered Democrats who voted in 2016 but not in 2014 to see what issues matter to them and encourage them to come out for this year's mid-term elections. We've had two sessions so far at the Central Committee office in Prince Frederick and both have gotten a great response. If you've never made calls before, don't be afraid to give it a try. We know it can seem intimidating, but it's also rewarding to talk to fellow Democrats who are fired up about what's going on locally and nationally. Several volunteers at this week's Club meeting talked about their experiences at the last two sessions, and all of them said it was easier than they thought and that any nervousness faded away pretty quickly. And remember that you won't be making calls alone, and that someone will be there to walk you through any issues. A new volunteer can get trained on the system and ready to make calls in about 10 minutes. There are a lot of Democrats who didn't vote in 2014 that we need to get in touch with, so even if you can only sign up for one session a month, or can only make it for an hour, please consider pitching in.

The Club will be hosting two sessions a week - Sundays from 12-2pm and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm. You can sign up for an upcoming session here.

The Democratic Central Committee has dedicated its largest room to getting out the vote in 2018. Thanks to several Committee members’ work and a generous donation of equipment from IBEW International, we’ve modernized our network to handle group phone-banking so you can start reaching out to your voters.

We’ve got five workstations set up, each with its own phone line, headphones, and a VAN connected computer. MDVAN (VoteBuilder) is a browser- and app-based software that allows campaigns and committees from across the state to access information about voters and volunteers, and to easily create walk lists and call lists. VAN allows users to break down a voting district by geography making it easy to create canvassing turfs. It can also organize voter information by voting history, party affiliation, age, and many other criteria.

CCDCC Office

 

If you’re a Democrat running for office or know someone who is, schedule a work session today with our office staff. We've got people willing to help make calls and we will make sure that you and your volunteers are set-up and trained to start phone-banking in your district.

The Calvert County Democratic Central Committee is working hard to ensure that we get Democrats elected in 2018. If you have any ideas or would like to help Turn Calvert Blue, we'd love to hear from you. Contact us today

You may have already seen some cars in Calvert County featuring a bumper sticker with the slogan “HEAL AMERICA.” This new slogan is an attempt to demonstrate that Democrats are in Calvert and ready to work to work to ease the divide evident in our politics and our nation.

Heal America

HEAL AMERICA is a rallying cry for Democrats which defines a VISION for all Americans. It will take all of us working together to move forward with compassionate and responsible action.

The lack of civility caused by political extremes has brought our national problem-solving to a screeching halt. Through compromise, we again can raise the good of the country over political idealism.

Once we have restored honest and civil political discourse, the country can get on with the tasks necessary to keep it great. They include:

  • Fixing healthcare
  • Repairing infrastructure
  • Providing jobs and training
  • Reforming campaign finance
  • Making education effective
  • Sustaining Social Security
  • Strengthening foreign relations
  • Reducing drug use
  • Caring for the environment
  • Guaranteeing equal rights

HEAL AMERICA - Put Americans to work with jobs and training programs.
HEAL AMERICA - Focus on disease prevention and effective addiction programs to reduce the burden of treatment and rehabilitation.
HEAL AMERICA - Cooperate and compromise to solve critical problems.

To get your free bumper sticker, stop by any of our upcoming meetings, or the Democratic Headquarters during office hours (Mon., Wed., and Fri. from 12:30 to 3pm) and pick yours up! Contact us with questions or for more information.
