The Democratic Party is the party of progress, the sponsor of major initiatives over the years that span America's history. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, National Goals for Education, Civil Rights Reform, Environmental Protection, Missions for Science and Space, Sound Defense Measures and many others, all occurred with Democrats at the forefront.  It is in the spirit of accomplishment and the pursuit of meaningful reforms that our local Democrats step forward.  The Calhoun County Democrats want progressive government for all of Alabama and especially for our Northeastern Region of the State.

We are pledged to provide the positive, honest leadership that will move us ahead.  We want to promote jobs for the modern economy, repeal the sales tax for groceries which burdens our low income families so unfairly.  We want to improve the perception of government and help our Calhoun County citizens regain confidence in their state and local officials. We continue to seek greater, more informed public support for quality education, affordable and readily available health care, and protection of the environment in which we all live.
