We had a wonderful time at the Ashe County Democratic Party's Convention on March 16, in Jefferson. Fifty-four  people attended, which included precinct chairs and members, party officers and board members. Several videos were played highlighting Democratic Party accomplishments and our path forward for 2024. Candidate speeches were given, sharing plans and goals for 2024, and beyond. Many thanks to Chuck Hubbard, candidate for the 5th Congressional District seat running against Virginia Fox; Ben Massey, Jr., candidate for the NC House - District 93, and County Commissioner candidates Nancy Weaver Hoffman, Tanya Robinson, and Ann Rose. Lots of good energy. And amazingly, this was all done by volunteers and contributors like you!  See Convention Highlights here.


100 Year Old Democrat Gives Candidates Advice

We were proud to have H.C. Moretz, Jr., join us at the Ashe County Democratic Party Convention on March 16. H.C. turned 100 years old a few days earlier. H.C. fought for Democracy in the Battle of the Bulge against fascists in WWII, and he continues to fight for Democracy back home, by being politically active. H.C.'s granddaughter, Ashely Moretz-Elks, is following in his footsteps as an officer of the Democratic Women of Ashe/DWA and assisting the Young Democrats. She also knows how to fight for what's right. H.C. has some advice for all of us.
