For all who have signed up to be a precinct leader, we are hosting a reception 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22, at the Fresno County Democratic Party Headquarters, 1035 U Street in downtown Fresno.

Our countywide precinct leader program provides activist Democrats with an excellent opportunity to make a difference in their own neighborhood. This program has shown proven results, and the more precinct leaders we can engage in 2016, the greater our likelihood of success. Help elect Democrats in Fresno County.
