Precinct Organizing Volunteer Celebration
November 20, 7:00 p.m.

Calling all who worked with the Precinct Organizing Committee to get out the Voter Guide and GOTV! Your hard work really paid off, and now it’s time to celebrate, let down our hair, and receive some well-earned thanks. Please join us Friday Nov. 20th at 7 p.m., on Zoom still, for a chance to get to meet each other and to hear from our beloved electeds. More info.

County Convention
November 23, 6:00 p.m.

The WCDP will hold a County Convention on Monday, November 23 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The primary purpose of this convention will be the selection of Executive Committee members. For more details, including a registration link, view the official Call to Convention here. Also, if you are a county convention noob, look for an upcoming email explaining the who, what, why, and how of the convention and what it means for the party going forward.

Public Notice for County Appointments
The deadline for applying to various boards, committees, and commissions for the county government has been extended to November 20. The Board of Commissioners will make these appointments at its upcoming session on December 2, 2020 at 6:45 p.m. Learn about the different positions and how to apply. This is a great way for WCDP members to get involved in local government and start building their credentials.

Mental Health and Public Safety Millage
The Mental Health and Public Safety Millage is something that the WCDP and Washtenaw County voters continue to support. A report that outlines how Washtenaw County’s mental health millage funds were spent was recently explained in this MLive article. If you would like to see the Millage Annual Report yourself, you can review it here. For more details on the Community Mental Health millage, visit the county webpage here.

For Republican politicians, “mental health” is a throwaway subject that we only hear about in their stump speeches. For Democrats, this is an important issue that is addressed through voting, funding, and policy making.

New Bylaws
A proposal to refresh the existing bylaws passed unanimously at the last General Membership meeting on November 7. That entire meeting is available on our YouTube page here. The new bylaws are available on our website here. In the spirit of transparency, a new bylaws page will be in development over the next several months with an easy-to-understand explanation of the WCDP and the MDP’s rules and procedures.
