Our mission is to elect Democrats in Tompkins County and beyond and to support a progressive agenda that is inclusive and responds to the needs of all residents, with special attention to working families and the vulnerable.
The TCDC works to find candidates who reflect our values and political philosophy, and who are willing to make the personal sacrifice to run for office and serve the public. We support those candidates through petitioning to get them on the ballot, providing campaign resources and canvassing and phone banking to get out the vote on election day.
As we look forward to 2020 and beyond, there is a lot of work to do. Now, more than ever, is the time to take action to strengthen our party and build meaningful relationships within our community, so that we are successful in finding strong Democratic candidates and helping them get elected to office.
Join us! Our meetings are open and we invite all registered Democrats to attend. We are always looking for ways for our committee to grow and improve and new members bring in fresh perspectives and ideas. Additionally, we encourage anyone who wants to get involved to join their local town or ward committee, which accept new members throughout the entire year.
