Welcome

Welcome to Carteret County Democratic Party site. We are your neighbors and have the same concerns as you do: a quality education for our young people, affordable healthcare for everyone, jobs with a living wage, and keeping our coast healthy, beautiful, and free from drilling. We work to ensure that all our voices are heard locally as well as at the state and national level. As Democrats, we are traditionally the ‘big tent’ party that welcomes everyone regardless of who you are. All North Carolinians should have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, how much money they have, or who they love. This is something we believe in and need to continually reaffirm in practice. You can read our platform here.

Carteret County NCDP Update

Precinct meetings were held  February 5th – 19th completing Phase I. All and all, our meetings went really well, with a few precincts breaking all sorts of attendance records.

We have 24 organized precincts out of 28.  We will continue to work in the four unorganized precincts to find someone willing and able to get five Democrats together and elect officers.   Also, Indian Beach/Salter Path organized officially with an enthusiastic group that will surely grow and help us elect a bunch of Democrats!
  
The focus now turns to getting our grassroots organizations turned on to the task ahead.
    

For those of you who were elected as a delegate to the County Convention, please ensure you put the date of the convention on your calendar:  March 24, 10am, Carteret County Courthouse in Beaufort.  The purpose of the meeting is to adopt resolutions that have been submitted (due to Katie Tomberlin no later than March 17th) and to elect delegates to the District Convention, who will then adopt resolutions, and elect delegates to the State Convention.  From there, our Party Platform will be published.

Not Off Our Coast!

Tuesday, February 27th, 6:30 PM, Carteret County Community College - Josyln Hall
