Posted 28 June 2018

CCDCC Pre Election Rally

Calvert Democrats made a strong showing on Saturday, June 23rd for a pre-election rally at the headquarters building in Prince Frederick. We were honored to be joined by Congressman Steny Hoyer, who met with precinct captains before addressing the crowd. Congressman Hoyer spoke about the importance of the coming election and how the very pillars of our democratic process are under attack. We were also pleased to be joined by Maryland Senate President Mike Miller, Delegate Michael A. Jackson and many other local Democratic candidates. The pre-election rally was a big success, and special thanks should go out to all the volunteers who planned this event and showed up early on a Saturday morning to make sure everything went smoothly.

Early Voting Turnout High

Posted 22 June 2018

More and more voters across the state are choosing the convenience of Early Voting. This year in Calvert early voting is up by more than 50% from 2014. The Democratic tent was up at the Board of Elections for the duration and we got to talk to a lot for people going in to make their selection. There were also a bunch of local candidates on hand to explain their positions and help voters make up their minds. All our volunteers were pleased to talk with the early voters and give them candidate information. On Sunday, Trish Weaver graced both the Democratic and Republican tents with hot cookies and cold cucumber/mint water, delicious!

CCDCC Early voting tent

On Primary Day, THIS TUESDAY June 26th, we will need many more volunteers to staff a tent at EACH of Calvert’s 23 precincts. We still need many more volunteers, so please sign up today. It's critical that we have Democrats at every voting location. You can just work a couple of hours before or after you plan to vote, or you can sign up for more than one shift. Please sign up here today or you can contact us by phone: 410.414.3660 or email: CCDemOffice@gmail.com!

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

Issues Task Force Preparing for 2018 Elections

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.

 

 

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.

All Calvert residents, 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 free! Residents of other counties and states, please send $2 and a self-addressed stamped envelope to George Stewart Brown, 10375 Mackall Road, St. Leonard, MD  20685.  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.
