All politics is local--we've heard that forever, and it's true.  A grass roots effort to change anything starts at our own back door.  Therefore, CCDP is encouraging everyone to attend their local township meetings, or if you're in Dowagiac, the council meetings.  Get informed and get involved.  Below is the list of meeting dates and times.  Introduce yourself to each other, and come to our CCDP meetings the third Tuesday of the month at 5 pm.   Hope to see you soon!  Cathy

We're happy to announce that over 450,000 petition signatures were collected in record time, and the required number were certified by the State.  This insures that the voters will be able to vote to end partisan gerrymandering in Michigan in the November general election.  Congratulations to the organizers and volunteers that gave us this wonderful Christmas present!  Special thanks to our Cass County team led by Sue Monahan, Naomi Ludman, and Zane Lankford.  They and their dedicated team worked tirelessly to help make this happen.  Thank you from the citizens of Michigan!

"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." 
                 --President Dwight D. Eisenhower, November 8, 1954
