Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Presidential Candidate Debate Watch Party #4

GOT 4

Presidential Debate Watch Party #4

JOIN DEMOCRATS TO
SHARE, LEARN, LAUGH, DECIDE

The fourth round has been finalized and it is 1 night and 12 candidates.  Hosts will lead pre- and post-debate discussion. Play debate bingo!  Share your opinions in a safe environment.

Bring an appetizer or sweet to share (all food goes home with donor at the end of the evening) and your own drinks. 
We will order food to share (asking for a donation to cover the cost.) 

Don't sit alone in your living room yelling at the TV.  Instead join fellow Dems on Tues., October 15th at 6:30 pm and cheer on your favorite, or narrow your own field.

Please RSVP so we know how many to expect.
