This year we are celebrating with renewed vigor the values and actions that bring meaning and direction to our daily civic lives. We celebrate a great county: Shiawassee; we celebrate small town democratic values at their best; we celebrate good neighbors, great schools, “salt-of-the-earth” farmers, and energetic manufacturing and small businesses; and we celebrate democratic values and principles that are admired by freedom-loving people around the world.













This is a crucially important year for strategic planning and action.  Please come and hear from our local, state and national Democratic officials and upcoming candidates.  They want to meet YOU!  Now – more than ever, we need to come TOGETHER to support democratic governing ideals.
