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.

Women’s Club Kick-off New Year with November in Mind

Posted 18 January 2018CCDWC

The Women’s Club met early in January to gear up for the 2018 election cycle. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get out the vote, but with great candidates on the ballot and a community of motivated progressives, we feel we have what we need in order to Turn Calvert Blue!

The first speaker in the evening was Paula Bailey, Calvert Election Registrar with the Election Board. Ms. Bailey provided all in attendance the information and paperwork each needed in order to become a voter registrant. Now that The Women’s Club is certified, we expect to begin registering voters as we canvass for the 2018 elections. Ms. Bailey also answered many questions about the registration process and provided in-depth knowledge of the election system.

Greg Bowen, a member of Keep Calvert Country, was the second speaker of the evening. Mr. Bowen was there to inform The Club as to what Keep Calvert Country sees as short-comings in the Proposed Comprehensive Plan, also known as the Calvert 2040 Plan. Read an in-depth look at Mr. Bowen and Keep Calvert Country’s perspective here.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 6:00 pm at Adam’s Taphouse in Prince Frederick. There will be a social dinner from 6- 6:50 pm, and the business meeting will open at 6:50 pm. Our February speaker will be Cindy Yoe to discuss the Calvert Democrats’ precinct organization and train us in the use of the phone bank.
