Calvert Democrats at Halloween in the Garden

Posted 30 October 2017

Calvert Democrats and Candidate for Commissioner, Holly Budd, were at Anne Marie Gardens on October 28th as they hosted their 18th Annual Halloween in the Garden. Volunteers were there to hand out candy to the kids and talk about the local Democratic Party to the parents. A big thank you goes out to everyone who donated bags of candy for the event. There was plenty, and the varieties were very popular with the costume-clad youth.

Also very popular was the literature at the booth. Lots of parents were interested in the events and actions of local democrats. Flyers and info sheets flew off the table and plenty of people expressed an interest in getting engaged. Be sure you know when our next meetings are and invite your neighbors. From the conversations we had at Halloween in the Garden, they want to know!

The Democratic meet and green picnic hosted by the Central Committee last weekend was very successful. Many local Dems came out and enjoyed some good discussion and great food and drinks. Senator Mike Miller spoke about the challenges ahead in the 2018 Governor's race, and several candidates for Commissioner talked about local issues that are particularly important to them. The event ended with raffling off an Irish basket of cheer, several decorative plaques and a basket of locally grown sweet potatoes (complete with a secret family recipe).

Friendly Rivalry has Big Impact

Posted 22 September 2017

The Democratic Club and Democratic Women's Club have engaged in a friendly competition to see which can generate the most donations for End Hunger in Calvert County. The current totals are CCDWC: 570 pounds, and CCDC: 498 pounds. That’s a combined total of over a thousand pounds of food donated to End Hunger in Calvert County.

For the upcoming meetings we will be focusing on donations for the Halloween in the Garden event on October 28th from 11am to 4pm. Please consider bringing a donation of candy to the Democratic Club meeting on Tuesday September 26th or to the Women's Club meeting on Tuesday, October 3rd for Halloween trick-or-treating at the community event at Annmarie Garden.

Calvert Democrats New Bumper Sticker: Get Yours Today!

Posted 05 September 2017

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 the Women’s Club Basket Auction THIS Tuesday, September 12th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Adam’s Taphouse in Prince Frederick. Or stop by 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.

Consider Giving Some of Your Time to Turning Out the Vote

Posted on 25 August 2017CCDCC

With the 2018 elections fast approaching the Central Committee is in need of volunteers to turn out the vote in Calvert County! While the CCDCC always operates with a volunteer force managing the Headquarters, running food drives, and performing various community outreach programs, election years present a great many more tasks. We need volunteers to staff information booths at community events and at polls on election days. With over 35 thousand registered Democratic or unaffiliated voters to get in touch with in the next year, the Calvert Democrats need people to begin phone-banking and door-knocking right away. If we are going to turn out a democratic election in Calvert County in 2018, we need to start canvassing now. If you can spare a few hours a week to this, please get in touch with us right away.
