Our special guest is the new Secretary of the Missouri Democratic Party, Manny Abarca. Cass County has known Manny since he joined the Missouri Coordinated Campaign to help re-elect Senator Claire McCaskill in 2012. He also served as a National Delegate to the DNC in 2012 for President Barack Obama. After the McCaskill race turned tides, with the (then) craziness of Todd Akin, Manny left the Missouri Coordinated Campaign to work with Jim White, Patty Johnson, and Charlie Burton for state offices here in Cass County.
Manny currently serves as a Jackson County Democratic Committeeman and Kansas City Public School Board member.
We watched Manny rise to leadership in the Missouri Democratic party. Please join us as we welcome him "home" to Cass County.
We are committed to building back better in Cass County. Learn how to be part of the Central Committee and local Democratic Party. Hear about our exciting new goals and ways you can help.

To all the frontline workers, the healthcare workers, teachers, EMTs, first responders, store workers, you’ve made a lot of sacrifices for us in 2020 and so to every single one of you THANK YOU so much. You’ve been our heroes this year, and we’ll forever be grateful!
We're also grateful that we were able to pass Medicaid expansion, which will help so many Missourians gain access to affordable healthcare! And while November didn't bring the outcome we'd hoped for in Missouri, it is such a relief to know that very soon we'll once again have honorable and honest leadership in our great country with President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris!
The Cass County Democrats will begin having monthly Zoom gatherings again in January and we'd love for you to join us. The lack of leadership in Cass County and the state of Missouri has been tragic this last year and we could sure use your help in bringing back a government that works for the health and welfare of ALL of us. Click the join button at the top of this website and you'll receive our monthly newsletter for dates and times of our meetings.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, may 2021 bring health, peace, and happiness to you and your families!
Join us on the 17th for a Get Out The Vote Rally in the parking lot of our headquarters at 549 N. Scott in Belton.
Meet your local and state candidates for State Representative and State Senate, as well as County Commissioner. At 3:00 pm Lindsey Simmons, our next Congresswoman for the 4th District will join us for a postcard signing party.
The drawing for $500, $250, and $100 gift certificates to Farrar Family Farms will be at 3:30, so you'll have plenty of time to grab some last-minute tickets to support this local family farm and the Cass County Democrats.
We've also got some great items in our silent auction and we'll be giving away free pumpkins for the kids!
Free notary services available too, if you still need to get your ballots notarized.
All attendees must wear a mask and practice social distancing.
We currently have a Campaign Headquarters at 549 N. Scott in Belton, MO thru November 3rd. We are open on Tuesday and Thursday from 4-7 pm and on Saturdays, 10 am - 2 pm, you can reach us by phone at 816-425-5026. We have Biden for President signs for a $5.00 donation! Other candidate signs will be in the office as available.
Masks and social distancing required when inside the building. All coming inside will be asked to provide a name, phone number, and address for the purpose of contact tracing if that should become necessary. If you'd like to give us a call before you come, we'll be sure and get your signs ready for you.
The Clean Missouri Amendment passed by an almost 2-to-1 margin in 2018. Over 60% of the voters in Cass County passed this Amendment!
But now Jefferson City politicians have a dirty new plan they’re sending to the ballot — to overturn the fair map rules put into law by voters, and to replace the good policy in our constitution now with a radical gerrymandering scheme. We are joined this month by the Campaign to Vote NO on Amendment 3, Dirty Missouri.
In addition, we'll be handing out call-lists to committee people and discussing other voter outreach and meat bundle fundraiser.
We'll be sending out a Zoom message link via email later this week. Be sure and Join Us on our website to get on our email list.
See you Thursday night!
