Here’s something you’ll never hear in any political organization: “Well, it looks like we have just too many volunteers!” That’s because there’s no such thing as too many volunteers, particularly at the local level.
There’s more to politics than running for office, sporting campaign buttons or slapping a sticker on your car’s bumper. It’s a lot of nitty-gritty work, and most of it is done by volunteers just like you. Wherever your talents or interest lie, the Jackson County Democratic Committee can put them to use:
- Join a standing team (or two, or three)
- Run for precinct delegate
- Volunteer for a campaign
- Help out at fundraisers
The best way to volunteer is to come to our membership meeting the third Monday of each month. There you can introduce yourself to officers and team leaders who will be more than happy to put you to work. Or, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Communications — The Communications Team is responsible for the public face of the JCDC, and works to communicate party affairs to the membership and to the public. Meets the first Wednesday of each month.
