For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jody LaMacchia and I’m the newly elected Chair of the Oakland County Democratic Party. My term started earlier this month and I’d like to tell you about myself and our plans for the OCDP.

For the past 4 years I served as the Chair of the North Oakland Democratic Club. North Oakland is traditionally a challenging area for Democrats. I should know, this past cycle I ran for State Representative in one of most conservative districts in the county. In spite of the challenging geography, I’m proud that under my leadership we doubled the membership of the NODC, started a political action committee, made real investments into local candidates and I earned more votes than any Democrat running in my district ever. 

I’m looking forward to building on the approach and success we had in North Oakland to elevate the Oakland County Democratic Party into the premiere County Democratic organization in the country.

Over the next two years we have a lot of work ahead of us. (1) Supporting local candidates running for key 2021 municipal offices in places like Novi, Pontiac, and Farmington Hills. (2) Investing in local Democratic Clubs to build the infrastructure needed for long term community organizing. (3) Prepare for 2022 where Oakland County will be the lynchpin to re-electing Governor Whitmer AND taking control of the Michigan Legislature.

I’m so fired up for the work ahead, but we can’t do it without you!  I’m asking you to make an early investment in the OCDP and help us with this critical work ahead.

I’m looking forward to communicating with you regularly about our goals and how, working together, we can secure a more just, equitable, and prosperous county and state by electing more Democrats from Oakland County.
