Welcome to the Licking County Democrats Website!


There is currently an election taking place for the new leader of the Democratic National Committee, and we need you to be a part of it.

Given the disappointing results in Ohio and other states, this election offers the opportunity to have an honest conversation about the future and direction of our Party.

Given the important role we play nationally, we in Ohio must be a strong voice in this conversation, which is why we want to hear from you.

Thanks for weighing in,
David Pepper
Chairman, Ohio Democratic Party

A message from our Party Chair:

Tuesday was a very difficult day for us.  We must go on…

Congratulations to Stephanie Dodd on retaining her State Board of Education seat, and to Earle Wise who won as Judge of the 5th District Court of Appeals.

We are so thankful for the great work by our local candidates, Ed Albertson, Joe Begeny, John Carlisle, Chris Shook, Phil Proctor, Randy Morton, and James Snedden, Jr.   They worked hard to be elected and all should give them a big hand of applause.  Several may run again so look for that news.

We are very thankful for the local field staff, Lydia, Victoria, Jason, Eli, David and Amanda who worked their hearts out for both the presidential and local races.  They will be at their office cleaning up for a bit and will welcome a hug.

We are thankful for every one one of our volunteers who worked tirelessly for our candidates…a big hug to all!

The disappointment in the Presidential race is off the charts.  President Obama, as has happened with past elections, congratulated the winner and will be working for a peaceful and smooth hand off of government.

Our Democratic principles and the issues we care about have not changed. Our “What We Stand For” Document and the “What We Believe” letter Club President Mike Smith wrote still hold true.

We will gather on the 4th Tuesday Nov 22nd, 7:00 PM at our office at 2054 Cherry Valley Rd., Newark to work together on our future.  Municipal Elections are on deck in 2017.  All are welcome to attend.

The Holiday Party is set for Thursday, December 8th, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Buckeye Winery on 3rd Street in Newark.  Plan to be with like minded friends!

The next Democratic Club Meeting is Dec 13th, 7:00 PM at our office at 2054 Cherry Valley Rd., Newark.

My personal warm hugs to all…and do give them to your friends …

Grace Cherrington, Party Chair
