Wilkes democratic Party
Welcome to the Wilkes County Democratic Party on line!
I invite you to join me today and announce we are no longer willing to have our morals, social conscience and our religious beliefs questioned because we are Democrats. I have had enough, and I know you have had
enough of this right-wing slander. I plan to work day and night in a Democratic revival in Wilkes County and in North Carolina to take our State back from politicians that seem to be missing a heart and soul, and to elect candidates that care more for their fellow man than the almighty dollar.
We have nine months to build a community of like-minded citizens willing to work hard to make our presence felt in Wilkes County and throughout the State. I have the time and the energy, and I need you to join me with your time and energy to reframe the message of Democrats and make our presence felt in Wilkes County.
We CAN DO THIS, but we must involve many more of our family and friends in this process. I believe the Republicans have seriously overreached in the State and the Nation and there is a window of opportunity here. The issues which seem to me of the greatest concern and impact in Wilkes County are:
-The dismantling of Public Education and lack of respect for teachers,
-The continued obstruction of health care reform and failure to expand Medicaid,
-The lack of good quality jobs, and
-The dismantling of environmental protections.
These critical issues are not just Democratic issues. They impact Republicans, Independents, and the unregistered. They impact the poor and the middle class because 95% of the recovery since the 2008 recession has gone to the top 1 %. Eventually the wealthy will run out of customers for their goods and services as we spiral closer to economic collapse.
I welcome you to the Wilkes County Democratic Party online and invite you to join us in rallying those who agree with our principles to become active and join us as we fight for these principles in the 2014 election. First, I urge you to share your concerns by participating in our countywide poll here. There we invite you to tell us your concerns. Second, join our mailing list by using contact form below. Check out our events and calendar on this page Details on all these events as well as national, state, and local details are available on this web site.
Finally, join us in a neighborhood revival promoting our values by contacting your neighborhood Democratic Party. You can identify your neighborhood leadership or help to organize it by considering "Get involved in your neighborhood", or by contacting us in the box on this page.
