Congratulations to Representative Jason Hodges on his victory in TN District 67.
His leadership is invaluable in Montgomery County, and we are thrilled that he will continue representing us in the State House.
Thank you to all of our Democratic candidates who ran for office in 2020. Their investment of time, energy, and personal resources is appreciated by fellow Democrats. All of the hard work on these campaigns is building a strong foundation for future Democratic candidates.
Raise With Purpose
Fundraising is a constant task for candidates and parties in our current political system. The MCDP believes that if we are going to ask our community for money, then we owe it to them to be as transparent as possible and make sure that we keep our spending focused within Montgomery County. A majority of the funds that we raise in 2020 will help our party elect Democrats on the local, state, and national levels.
Gather and Empower Advocates
An ideal network for a local party will consist of a variety of people with a variety of strengths. It is the diversity of our membership that will propel us in the community. We need to work alongside our local allied associations, tap into pro bono professionals that are able to lend their services or counsel to our cause, and rally members of our city together in the pursuit of strategic activism.
Getting Democrats out of the Political Closet
There is a chronic disparity between democrats perception of how many “left-leaning” citizens are in Clarksville and the reality of it. Republicans have been emboldened over the last decade, and make up a majority of the power players and voices in our county. We already have the numbers to turn this county purple; now we just have to organize our collective power and voice.
