Glenburnie Park Picnic: A Huge Success!

Our May picnic at Glenburnie Park was a huge success!

The weather forecast was calling for thunderstorms, but the rain held off until just after we were finished packing everything up!

Over 80 people joined together to socialize, eat some delicious food, and talk about how we can make our county, our state, and our country a better place.

Special thanks to CCDP Treasurer Libbie Griffin for taking the lead on organizing the picnic, and to Mark Ulrey, Bill Blakefield, Norm McCullough, and Roy Smith for going above and beyond the call of duty in helping out before and after the event.

Here are some pictures from the picnic:

CCDP Statement on House Bill 780 (Same-Sex Marriage Ban)

House Bill 780 is an unconstitutional attempt to roll back the progress we’ve made to ensure that everyone has the right to marry the person they love, regardless of their sexual orientation… so we’re not surprised that Michael Speciale, a Republican state legislator with a long pattern of carrying water for narrow special interests against ordinary North Carolinians, is one of the people behind the effort. Read our full statement on HB780.

Congratulations to our new executive board!

At our county Democratic Party convention on April 1, our delegates elected a new executive board to lead our party forward into the 2017 and 2018 elections.
