Fired up!!  Ready to Win!

We are the Leelanau County Democratic Party (LCDP), an active, progressive organization whose goal is to enhance the quality of life in Leelanau County and its surrounding jurisdictions.  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 and having fun making a positive impact on our community.
Get Involved
Our organization is growing -- in members, activities and ways to become
involved in our community.  On the political front, 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.
