Welcome to the Leelanau County Democratic Party (LCDP). We are an
active, progressive organization whose goal is to enhance the quality of life
in Leelanau County. Through the commitment of our members and the
election of responsive government officials, we strive to improve the
environment, economy, education and healthcare in our County. Leelanau
Democrats are an inclusive group of individuals working hard, having fun and
together making a positive impact on our community.
Our organization is growing -- in members, activities and ways to become
involved in our community. On the political front, over the past year our
members have formed call teams to contact Congress in support of health
care reform, circulated petitions garnering over 4000 signatures demanding
healthcare reform, and helped organize the highly successful Rally for
Healthcare in Traverse City that drew more than 250 participants.
Our Blue Tiger community service efforts continue to expand as well. We
have held numerous Food Drives at groceries throughout Leelanau County
which have netted hundreds of pounds of food and thousands of dollars for
local food pantries.
You'll also find Leelanau Dems cleaning our highways, ushering at the State
Theatre, and having a great time together at picnics, parades, and special
events throughout the year.
Please visit our "Get Involved" page to learn more about how you can share
in the fun and satisfaction of being a Democrat in Leelanau County.
We hope that you'll join us. Please visit our "Contact Us" page and send us a
message, ask a question, or tell us how you might like to help our efforts.

volunteers, financial support, and YOUR MEMBERSHIP! Dues are $10 per
