Welcome to the Nevada County Democratic Party
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 7:30 pm on the first Tuesday of the month at the Banner Grange in Grass Valley. 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.
Our next big activity is the Fourth of July Parade
The parade is in Grass Valley this year. It starts at 11:00am so we will be gathering about 10:00 – place TBA later. We are at Number 34. Please wear your Democratic t-shirt or a blue shirt. Please come out and march with us. There is power in numbers!!!
Daraka at the Ca state convention – please watch this video
DARAKA LARIMORE-HALL, Ph.D., secretary of the California Democratic Party, spoke at our fundraiser luncheon held at the Alta Sierra Country Club May 3lst. He is a lifelong political activist and community organizer from Santa Barbara who had extremely important and helpful things to say in support of our efforts here in Nevada County. He was just as spellbinding and energizing as he was when he spoke at the recent California Democratic Party Convention held in Anaheim May 15th through the 17th.
His focus was the importance of political activism, of politics, on a local level in order to: communicate our values and the policies we support to everyone in our community; get out the vote and to make local officials accountable. He also clarified the importance of our Democratic Party as a conduit to power to enact the policies that reflect our progressive values and improve the lives of ordinary Americans. Single issue affiliated groups as well as “decline to state” voters need to be made aware of the importance of voting for Democrats to achieve their goals. Our volunteerism is essential to be able to see the changes that need to happen in the course of our lifetimes and in the interest of the next generation.
Our very own LILY MARIE-MORA was acknowledged as Volunteer of the Year. She not just a seasoned, tireless volunteer but also is an established advocate for peace and for all of us who believe that war is not the solution to promoting our democratic principles, values and vision for the future.
-Michele Spencer, Communications
We are the Democratic Central Committee of Nevada County, aiming to bring up to date information to the citizens of Nevada County.
Please note the following changes starting in September; 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. Because of the increased size of our Central committee, those meetings on the third Thursday of each month will be held at the Banner Grange (except Sept. meeting will be the third Wed. Sept 17th at the New Mohawk 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 the Banner Grange location at 12629 McCourtney Rd. Grass Valley, Ca. – about 1 mile past the fairgrounds. It is more centrally located, has better parking and is a bigger facility.
Thank you for your support
