ARE YOU READY?
We're counting on your help!
The Town of Kinderhook Democratic Committee invites you to attend our meetings and social gatherings and encourages your participation in county and state sponsored gatherings as well. These events are an excellent way to show your support for local Democrats and the values for which we advocate- equality, inclusion, empowerment and cooperation. Please view the information below to find ways to join us!
Town Committee Meeting
The Town committee meets at 7pm on the 2nd Thursday of every month in room 106 of Valatie's Martin H. Glynn School. All registered Democrats are invited to attend.
Until further notice, meetings are being held virtually.
County Committee Meeting
Town and County committee members as well as residents meet at 7pm on the 4th Thursday of the month in the former library at Valatie's Martin H. Glynn School. All registered Democrats are invited to attend.
Election Related Volunteerism
Every Election Cycle
We need your help during the elections- driving voters to the polls, train to be a poll watcher, campaign for our candidates, and registered people to vote.
The Town Committee is always looking for volunteers! During election season we need door knockers and callers but year round we need people with special skills including graphic design, marketing, fundraising and plenty more.
Local Democratic Committees
County and Town
Both Columbia County and the 18 towns and 1 city within its borders have independently run Democratic Committees. Openings come and go on each so reach out to the committee of interest to you in order to join. Town Committees gather together monthly for a county wide meeting to discuss shared concerns and to keep abreast of neighboring Town happenings.
County, Town and Village
Opportunities on local boards are abundant. Different municipalities have regular board openings for all of Planning and Zoning, Historical Preservation, Education, Economic Development and more. Having Democrats on local boards helps ensure Democratically spirited policies govern and shape our local communities.
Rally, Resist, Advocate
Use Your Voice
Spread the word! Help your local Democratic organizations by "Liking" their Facebook pages. Join newsletters and circulate critical information to your friends and neighbors about what your local representatives are doing. Pick up a phone and CALL your local representatives to tell them what you think about upcoming votes or recent legislation. Strength is in numbers so bring friends with you to local board meetings, to visit representatives offices or to attend rallies and protests. Remember, your representatives work for you, regardless of party affiliation. Let them hear you!
