Neighborhood Democrats

of Galveston County

 

Neighborhood Democrats is a group of active and caring individuals who believe government works best with citizen involvement.   We can alter our destiny when we choose to participate and get others involved.

 

Neighborhood Democrats' purpose is to: identify and engage Democrats in a friendly forum; work to get Democrats, and those who hold Democratic beliefs, elected; support our elected officials; maintain an active and visible presence in the county.

 

Join us and help make a difference in Galveston County.  Government is what participating citizens make it. 

 

Our meetings are on the Second Tuesday of each month starting at 7:00 PM.  Call 281-990-5176 for information.

Neighborhood Democrats Special Announcements:

                

From the Search Committee:

Fellow Democrats!

As you may or may not know, Lloyd Criss, our current Democratic Party Chairperson, has expressed his desire to retire from this position.  He has worked tirelessly for many years to help our party move forward in the county.  We are grateful for his efforts.

To insure that we have a smooth transition from his tenure to the new Party Chairperson,  a Search Committee has been established to seek and interview possible candidates as his replacement.  Marcey Casey has been selected by Lloyd Criss and the Committee to coordinate and lead this effort.
 
The Search Committee is inviting all interested persons to notify Marcey by phone (409-762-4786), mail (3202 Avenue O, Galveston, Texas, 77550), or email (mkcasey@yahoo.com).

The Search Committee will make the recommendation to the County Executive Committee(CEC) as soon as possible.  The CEC then will vote on whether to accept the recommendation of this committee.   This will allow the CEC to fill the position by June 1st, so time is of the essence.  If you are interested or know someone who would be an excellent candidate,  we urge you to respond by April 15th. 

As you contemplate your application for this position, the Search Committee would suggest that you prepare a one page bullet-type of summary of your civic and political activities/positions held thus far.  This, plus a required interview, will assist the Committee  as it goes through the process of recommending a replacement for our current County Chairperson. We will let you know what the job entails.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Marcey Casey
Search Committee Chair
