DEMOCRACY AT WORK
I often hear some of our County Democrats stating they have a “different” vision for our party. As a lifelong member of the Democratic Party and considered a “strong Dem”, by voting as a Democrat in every Primary and Presidential election without interruption—I adhere to the “vision” of the platform and preamble from our National platform.
“Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.”
This party platform was voted on and passed by our membership at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in 2016. The platform will be updated and re-approved at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
