The Cass County Democrats had a great turnout for Belton's St. Patrick's Day Parade and a fantastic reception from the folks along the parade route!
Join us next Saturday, March 12th, for the Belton St. Patrick's Day parade. Line-up is at 4:00pm in Belton Memorial Park. Let's show Cass County how much fun it is to be a Cass County Democrat! We'll have some candidate lit to hand out and signs to carry.
Join us this Thursday night, February 25th. To say there is a lot going on is an understatement. We've got phone banks for Hillary and Bernie, candidate filings, delegate selection, Back to Blue and MUCH more to talk about. Jalen Anderson, from Blue Springs, will also be joining us. Jalen is a committeeman for the Young Democrats of Missouri and Judicial Representative for the South Central Region Young Democrats of America. See you all Thursday night!
Please join with Scott Friedrich, Gary Mallory, Joe Burke, Larry and Mary Dobson, Carl Gum, Janet Burlingame, Pam Shipley, KC Building Trades and Special Guest Attorney General Chris Koster for a fundraising reception in support of Ashley for State Representative.
Please join us for our 12th annual Back to Blue fundraiser.
Your support is critical to the success of Democrats in Cass County and the State of Missouri. We are already working hard to make the 2016 election a success for Democrats and we hope you will join us in our efforts by attending our annual event and/or being a Program Sponsor.
If you want to vote in the March 15th Presidential Preference Primary you must be registered to vote by February 17th!
Do you want to be a delegate to the Democratic National Convention? Would you like to run for office? Do you want to help your favorite candidates by volunteering? Answers to these questions and more at our next meeting on Thursday, January 28th. We hope to see you there. ALL are welcome.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Please be safe this coming week as our weather is changing again and New Year's Eve is approaching. Ring in the New Year full of hope and anticipation, but take time to reflect on 2015 with its struggles, challenges and blessings too. Carefully consider what you personally can do to make 2016 a successful year. We will meet again in January. I look forward to seeing each of you and hearing about your holidays. I also wish to hear each person's thoughts, ideas and commitments to help make this year a turn around year for Democrats. If you feel called to run for office, whether municipal, school board, county or state, please let me know. I will do all I can to help and to work with you to find others to help.
I believe we are at a critical time for our communities, our state, and our nation. Take time as we move into this new year to remember how important each individual is to our democracy and where you personally can make a difference. We have lots of work to do. Stay with us and keep going.
Happy New Year!
Patty Johnson, Chairperson
Cass County Democrat Central Committee
