The Calvert County Democratic Central Committee met on Thursday, August 17th at the College of Southern Maryland in Prince Frederick. Among the top things discussed were the events in Charlottesville, Virginia days before. The Central Committee discussed a public statement and its contents which can be read here.
Jason Fowler, a current candidate for Delegate in Calvert’s 27C District, spoke about several potentially winnable elections for Democrats in 2018, but that the largest challenge for each is groundwork. All the Democratic candidates will be facing an uphill battle in 2018, and with all their time consumed by engaging with voters they know will show up to the polls, there isn’t enough time to draw out the historical non-voters. This fact generated a discussion around the Central Committee focusing their efforts in drawing out the base of registered but non-voters in order to support all the Democratic candidates running in 2018.
With that in mind, the Central Committee is asking for volunteers to begin immediately. 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 you can spare a few hours a week to this, please get in touch with us right away.
The September meeting of the CCDCC will be on the 21st of September at 6:30pm. The location is yet to be determined, so check your email for an update.
