Get out the Vote


Message from the Chair:

I was asked more than once whom I was supporting for President in the Primary election.  I made it a point not to disclose my preference (save for one person), as I believe that as Chair of the NCDCC my position is to support all of our candidates and issues until a formal selection is made regardless of my personal position.


That said, for those who know me well should know, and now you all will know that I voted for Bernie Sanders in the Primary election.   I’ve spent nearly five decades promoting progressive issues, politicians, and causes.  I’ve been successful in some and not so much in others.  I am also a realist.  Politics is a long-term commitment, and over time and with an educated population our counties, states and country will, in my opinion, will evolve to where cooperation, tolerance, sharing, respect, and understanding are the expected norm.  There will always be pockets of ignorance, but together we can create a Political Revolution, as Bernie Sanders says, that can be a beacon to which others will aspire.

The Nevada County Democrats, led by the central committee, is the on-going “keeper of the flame” for the Democratic Party in Nevada County. We provide educational and social activities, an office, outreach, voter registration, and data management which keeps our party building momentum from one election year to the next. During election season, we manage the coordinated election campaign through our relationship to the California Democratic Party, provide space, money, activities, and volunteers to help our candidates get elected and to support the Democratic recommendations for voting on the propositions on the ballot.

In 2010, we initiated the First Tuesday Democrats, an informal gathering from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on the first Tuesday of the month at the Peace Lutheran Church (828 W. Main)  in Grass Valley. Please note new location starting Jan 2016. We’ve hosted many candidates and speakers about the various propositions on ballots. We will be continuing the program focusing on the political and economic issues of the day.

Please note the following changes starting in September 2014; We are moving our office to 138 New Mohawk Rd. Nevada City 95959. All committee meetings and organizational materials will be at this new address.

Directions to New Mohawk. From HWY 49 take the Gold Flat exit. Stay on Gold flat about 1 mile following the road to the left. Follow the signs to the Railroad Museum. Turn left onto New Mohawk Rd. and go up the hill to the 138 building. We are in the same building as the Friendship club and others.

We are also moving the location of our First Tuesday Educational Forum to Peace Lutheran Church 828 W. Main St. Grass Valley, CA starting Jan. 2016

Thank you for your support!!!
