Our Carolina Promise

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 download our Strategic Plan here.

Democratic Friends,

The Carteret County Democratic Party needs a home. We have found a great place, centrally located at 700 Arendell street, next to Waterkeepers. This is a wonderful storefront location that will provide us with enough room for meetings, small events and work space. To claim this space for our Party, we need 60 of our stalwart Democratic Friends to become CCDP Partners by committing to a monthly donation. The good news is you can sign up for monthly donations and they will occur automatically.

 

We have a July 15 deadline so please don’t delay, click the donate button now. We are counting on you!

 

 

Thank you to our amazing Volunteers and Democratic Friends!
