The Cass County fair was busy and fun.  Several 6th district US Congress candidates stopped by, including Paul Clements, Rich Eichholtz, George Franklin and the David Benac campaign.  Dean Hill, running for State House 78th District, was with us all week.  Thanks to all CCDP members who staffed the booth, put it up and took it down.  Congratulations to our own Marlene Deming for her blue ribbon watercolor!

Our "Color Us Blue" Resale Shop is open during the same hours as our Headquarters.  Sales help keep Headquarters open and help the community by providing affordable and needed items for sale.

We appreciate donations of clean, working items - small appliances, decorative items, furniture and other useful things.  Please no books, clothing or kid's toys.

We are also a collection point for Helping Hands Food Bank.  We appreciate any non-perishable not outdated food items.

 Many of us are bewildered, angry, scared and confused about this new administration.  How could this have happened we ask?  There are many reasons and more are becoming apparent daily.  Personally I don’t think this can go on for much longer.  But I’ve thought that every day since the election

So, what can we do?  We can stay informed by reputable news sources and write letters to the editor voicing our opinion on issues that concern us.  We can join protests around the District,  and become part of an “Action Alert” group that makes phone calls and emails on vital topics.  We can post the truth on social media; and talk to family, friends and neighbors about issues in a calm, fact based manner.  We can participate in community service projects.

If you want to be part of a group that is doing all these things and more, please join the Cass County Democratic Party, and come to our meetings on third Tuesdays 6 pm.  We welcome your participation and input.  You are not alone, come join us and be part of taking our country back.  Hope to see you soon, Cathy

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history.  There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things.  Among them are...Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas.  Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

Saturday, August 19
Cass County Democrats had their annual Summer Party at their headquarters in Cassopolis, MI.  All six candidates for US Congress 6th District,  Dean Hill, candidate for MI House 78th District, and Shri Thanedar, candidate for MI Governor, all spoke about their platforms and vision.  We are truly blessed to have such wonderful Democratic candidates for these offices.  CCDP won't endorse until the primary in August of 2018, but urges you to go to the website of these individual candidates and learn about their background and what they bring to the race.  Try to see them in person to gain a fuller appreciation of their potential for winning in 2018. 
CCDP Headquarters was filled with candidates and supporters meeting each other and enjoying an improv troup that performed political satire, a sloppy joes lunch, and a silent auction.  The petition to end partisan gerrymandering was introduced as well.
