Message from the Chair

Charleston County Democrats, 

First, thank you again for trusting my leadership and affording me this opportunity to serve as your chairman. I would like to give deference to former Chairwoman Colleen Condon, who has worked diligently to further push the efforts of this Democratic Party.

I am anxiously anticipating the many great things we will accomplish in our beloved county. Together, we will get more Democrats elected. We will serve our community and advocate for individuals who have to deal with unjust barriers. We are a strong party and because we are unified, we are only going to get stronger. Our future looks bright! 

Democratically yours,

Greg Perry

We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help us serve a meal at the Navigation Center on Thursday, April 1st (don’t worry, this isn’t some April fools prank).For those who don’t know, on the first Thursday of every month (this means 4/1/21), the CCDP supports the Navigation Center to help feed our neighbors. We need your help to make this event run smoothly! We need: 

  • 1-2 people to provide some sort of dessert (like cookies!) for around 50-60 people. I will provide the address of where to drop off the dessert off closer to the event.
  • 2 more people to help serve the food and clean up afterward (around 4:15-5:45pm) 

Please sign up HERE if you are interested in helping out! And, as always, please mask up, wash your hands, and maintain social distance throughout the entire event. If you have any questions, feel free to email erinr@charlestondemocrats.com.
