2018 Cleveland Dinner

Join the Carroll County Democrats and our 2 Keynote speakers, Congressman Joe Kennedy III, and Jason Kander, on October 18th at 7pm at the Red Jacket Resort in North Conway and help support your local candidates throughout Carroll County!

Rep. Kennedy gave the response on behalf of the Democratic party following President Trump’s State of the Union Address in 2018. He is the grandson of the late Senator Robert Kennedy and the great-nephew of President John F. Kennedy. 

Jason Kander is an attorney and combat veteran who founded Let America Vote, a non-profit organization whose mission is to end voter suppression and gerrymandering throughout the country. He is a gifted speaker who gained national prominence while running for the Missouri Senate with an ad featuring him talking about gun safety while assembling a firearm blindfolded; the video went viral and is considered by many to be to be the best ad ever made on gun safety. 

We also expect to have the Democratic nominee for Congress and the Governors office in attendance as well. Come out to hear their vision for our future and help the Carroll County Democrats take the majority on the Carroll County Delegation for the first time in history!

Flag Day Picnic

Join us on June 10th around 1pm for our annual Flag Day Picnic at Dick and Ruth Stuart’s house on Squam Lake, 677 Squam Lake Rd Sandwich.  We began this event to try and rally support in the Lakes Region for Democrats a few years ago and after Edie DesMaraishistoric win in the Wolfeboro Special Election are convinced that we can win in every district.  It will take time, and some money, from all of us though.  So come hang out at the lake, enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers, hear from Steve Marchand, State Senator Dan Feltes and Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky as well as our 4 Democratic State Representatives from Carroll County and make a suggested contribution of $25.
