Hello Friends, Democrats, and Interested Others,
Welcome to our Loudon County Democratic Party website. Did you know the Democratic Party is the oldest active political party in the United States? We are the party that continues to provide messages of change and hope, counteracting the politics of fear and intimidation. We hope you will join us in that pursuit.
The Loudon County Democratic Party's philosophy is “We Believe”. Our purpose is to help elect government leaders that share that philosophy, and anyone with these same values can help us to elect Democrats locally, statewide and nationally. Our purpose, stated in our bylaws, is to help Democratic voters choose their candidates for public office and advance Loudon County government. To include everyone, regardless of their financial resources, our bylaws forbid dues for membership.
If you are a Loudon County Democrat, this is your party also.
We rely solely on donations. You can help by making a financial contribution, and also by joining us at social fundraisers such as our annual Pie Auction, bean dinners, and other events.
The largest budget expense we have is operating a headquarters for three to six months every two years (a biennial event) - any viable candidate needs a spot to distribute their literature or have gatherings and events. But, a headquarters is expensive! And you probably also realize we cannot help elect the persons you want without campaign money… it is as simple as that!
The LCDP is an active force in our community in other events. We participate in our county Fourth of July and Christmas parades, and often operate an outreach booth at community events such as the Lenoir City Farmer’s Market. When appropriate, we also come up with creative ways to utilize community events for fundraising opportunities. For example, in the past we have operated a hot dog stand during the Fourth of July parade. It is important that we continue to have a presence at community events, and we could always use some help!
We appreciate your interest and need anyone interested in furthering the progressive ideals of the Democratic Party. Our needs include:
- Anyone who has writing or drawing skills
- Anyone who would be an event helper or chair
- Anyone who has Internet and/or computer skills
- Anyone willing to phone callers for events or GOTV
- Anyone willing to work in our headquarters (a biennial event)
