HISTORIC election results!


  • Congratulations to our candidates on a historic election night!
  • Coordinated Campaign Successes
  • Precinct Chairs Needed
  • Candidates Needed!

Congratulations to our 2023 municipal candidates on their sweep of the city races! All 10 of our candidates were successful. We made history as we elected the first woman and person of color to serve in the Mayor’s Office.

James Powell, as Coordinated Campaign Manager, led a great team with dedicated leaders in all six wards, orchestrating our successful weekly canvassing efforts. Edie Hardcastle and Cynthia Chester handled our phone banking events, while Melissa Moore and Dona Hall managed our postcard campaigns.

As we look towards 2024, we’re keen to implement this effective strategy once more. If you’re interested in joining our Get Out The Vote (GOTV) team, please reach out to James Powell at: jamespowell1459@gmail.com.

We have 135 precincts that each require a chair and vice chair. To fill all of the positions requires 270 people. Our precinct committeepersons serve in one precinct and volunteer in a manner in which they are most comfortable. The basic responsibility is to ensure we elect our democratic candidates. We hope to build on the momentum from this year’s very successful election to 2024.

This position is a great entry point into the local party! If you are interested, please complete the information on the form below, and you will be contacted to discuss your involvement.
