Neighborhood Democrats is a group of active and caring individuals who believe government works best with citizen political participation. We can alter our destiny when we choose to participate and get others involved.
The purposes of the organization are to:
1.) identify and engage Democrats in a friendly forum,
2.) support Democratic candidates for public office,
3.) support Democratic elected officials and causes,
4.) raise public awareness of current issues by disseminating information, holding public forums, encouraging activism, and
5.) support the Galveston County Democratic Party.
What it means to be a Democrat
Democrats are people you see in your community, at work, at your place of worship, at the store and at the ballpark. We come from all walks of life, but our shared beliefs and values help shape a strong county, state and nation where every citizen has the opportunity to succeed.
We believe: - In equal opportunity for all citizens. - In rewarding honest, hard work with a living wage and in a tax system that is fair. - In family values that are more than a political slogan. - In quality education that gives all citizens the opportunity to reach their potential. - In freedom from government interference in our private lives and personal decisions. - That individual strengths in our diverse population are a benefit. - In security in our homes and safety on our streets. Criminals should face swift and certain punishment. - In separation of Church and State to preserve the freedom to pursue our beliefs. - In a strong United States - morally, economically and militarily. - In common-sense reforms that give us cleaner and safer air and water.
Individual Membership is $25 per year, two or more memberships (same family), $50 per year. If that seems like a lot to you, consider how expenses for the activities can add up. Throughout the year, we participate in Parades, Neighborhood Picnics, Booths at Festivals, and we purchase and distribute Democratic Outreach Materials. You can join the Party by contacting us Here.
