CCDCC Goldstein Dinner

The Calvert County Democratic Central Committee hosted our 20th Annual Louis L. Goldstein Dinner on Thursday to recognize Democrats' service and dedication over this last year. Local Democrats were honored as well as state representatives during the joyful dinner. While there was great fun and celebration at last year’s progress and next year’s potential, the stirring moment of the evening was the silence spent in reflection for Jaelynn Willey, the 16-year-old student who was shot at Great Mills High School earlier that week.

Congressman Steny Hoyer requested that everyone in attendance observe a moment of silence after being informed that Jaelynn Willey had been taken off of life support. “A moment of silence is appropriate, but we need action.” Hoyer followed up with a reminder that much work needs to be done to ensure safety from gun violence in our schools and communities, cautioning that it may be an uphill battle, but one we can fight and win together.

Senator Mike Miller presented Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh the Standing for Justice Award. Frosh has worked tirelessly in ensuring that freedoms and rights are exercised equally across all of Maryland’s citizens, and in standing for Maryland against the devastating effects of the President and his administration. The Calvert County Democratic Central Committee offers AG Frosh our gratitude and appreciation.

Phone Banking

CCDCC Phone Banking

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. 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 have said it was easier than they thought and that any nervousness faded away 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 at Democratic Headquarters in Prince Frederick. You can sign up for this session here.

If you have any questions about phone banking, please email calvertdemclub@gmail.com

 

Event Date

CCDCCPosted 01 February 2018

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.

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.

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.

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.
