Last year, Sarah Todd, Democratic Party of Georgia vice chair of congressional district chairs and county party liaison, was among the LCDP BBQ speakers; and there is video.

In addition to providing a venue for Democratic candidates, good food, and a good time, the BBQ is a fundraiser for LCDP. Tickets are being printed and you can buy one or two or more, and you can help sell them. Sponsors are also welcome.

Come on down every first first Monday of the month to the LCDP meeting, next Monday, April 2, 2018, at Mama June’s on Inner Perimeter. It’s a social gathering, and it’s a business meeting. It moves around, so if you have a favorite location for fifty or so of your closest Democratic friends, let us know.

Party business doesn’t stop after the monthly meeting adjourns. There’s a BBQ to put on, candidates to elect, issues to air, and bills to pay. A few officers or committee members can’t do it alone. You are the party, so you can help us all Ride the Big Blue Wave.

You can become an LCDP member or renew today to help elect Democrats!

Lowndes County Democratic Party meetings are always informative and even inspiring. In May, we had Corey Hull, of the Valdosta-Lowndes Metroplitan Planning Organization (VLMPO), who updated us on public transportation.

At our July Annual BBQ we were joined by a number of local Democratic candidates who shared with us why they were running for office. We were also joined by Sarah Todd, Democratic Party of Georgia Vice Chair for County Parties, and Claudia Collier, Democratic Party of Georgia Greening Chair.
