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.

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.

Videos: LCDP BBQ 2017-07-06

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. You’ve already seen a few pictures from the BBQ. Here are videos from that fine day, July 6, 2017.
