COUNTDOWN TO CONVENTION 2018

Friday, 18 May – Sunday, 20 May

JOIN THE COMMITTEE

The Lincoln County Democratic Committee meets monthly. It’s an opportunity to meet members, participate in discussion, hear from political candidates and other speakers with expertise, ideas and opinions about current issues. We also have a number of volunteer subcommittees that focus on various long-range projects.

VOLUNTEER

LCDC is a great resource to become better informed about local, state and national issues affecting all of us and to help work toward implementing progressive solutions. Are you ready to get more involved?

RUN FOR OFFICE OR HELP OTHERS GET ELECTED

One of the fundamental roles of the LCDC is to educate and support aspiring candidates or become one yourself. It is more important than ever that the voices of those with progressive values and ideas are heard and that fresh perspectives and strategies are brought to bear on the problems we face.

    The biennial Frances Perkins Award Dinner honors a Lincoln County Democrat who exemplifies, through their efforts, the continuing legacy of Frances Perkins. Perkins served as Secretary of Labor for all three terms of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. As the first woman to ever hold a cabinet position, she was the lead advocate of the New Deal for Social Security, workers' hours, compensation, and unemployment insurance, as well as for child labor laws.

    We are pleased to honor Tomlin Perkins Coggeshall at this year's award dinner as a longtime volunteer and supporter of the LCDC. He founded the Frances Perkins Center in 2009 to ensure that current generations understand and sustain the programs which improve all our lives as a result of his grandmother's lifelong work. Tomlin has also volunteered endless hours making phone calls and volunteering at the LCDC campaign headquarters.
