Carter County Democrats Gather for Convention

Carter County Democrats will gather together April 2nd for their biennial county reorganization and county convention. This meeting will result in newly elected or re-elected Democratic Party officers who will lead the party through the 2012 election cycle. Any active or interested Democrats are welcome to join for fellowship, planning, and official business. The meeting will be held at the Carter County courthouse. Registration begins at 10 a.m. with doors closing and the meeting commencing at 11 a.m.

In 2008 over 5000 Carter County voters supported President Obama. The county convention is an opportunity for those voters to connect with one another and decide how best to support the Democratic Party and our candidates in 2012.

“Even though Carter County has recently voted Republican, I believe the current attacks on the working and middle class will cause a backlash against Republicans which will tip the scales towards the Democratic Party. As the far right becomes more and more controlled by multinational corporations and large money special interest groups, the Democratic Party best represents the needs and values of the citizens of Carter County,” says Mike Lane, Carter County Democratic Party Chair.
