Democrats To Do the Heavy Lifting in 2015

The November 2014 election was a real eye-opener for the work still to be done in educating and motivating voters in the Central Valley. We must spend 2015 finding good candidates to seek open offices in 2016, as well as developing and implementing strategies to better engage voters. The problem is voter participation and turnout, and we have to fix that. That’s our mission in 2015. We are adding a staff person specifically to coordinate such activities, and we would welcome your input, your volunteer time and, of course, your contributions toward making these efforts successful.

To help us create a real democracy in the Central Valley, call your Democratic Party HQ at 559-495-0606, e-mail us at fresnocountydemocrats@yahoo.com or visit us Monday–Friday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. at 1035 U Street in downtown Fresno.

Meet Our New Democratic Party HQ Office Manager

On Jan. 5, Christine Conley joined the Fresno County Democratic Party as the office manager for our headquarters (1035 U St., downtown Fresno). Christine played a key role in Esmeralda Soria’s successful campaign for Fresno City Council. She recently returned to the Central Valley (she is from Sanger) after a number of years Back East, most recently in Virginia. While there, she worked on Krystal Ball’s Congressional campaign. We are thrilled to have someone with her experience and expertise running our headquarters.

Drop by your Democratic Party HQ and meet Christine. You will find the headquarters an engaging venue and often a beehive of activity. We have numerous volunteer opportunities, and we are always looking for your input on how we can be more effective. Contact Christine at 559-495-0606.
