Wesley Harris, Candidate for State Treasurer
Guest Speaker at FDR Dinner

It's not every day that a candidate for State Treasurer appears in Ashe County. Rep. Wesley Harris (D), is running for the State Treasurer's seat and will be the Guest Speaker at the FDR Dinner. Wesley believes that it's time for the State to make an investment in its people. That's another reason to get FDR Dinner tickets. Find out more about Wesley here. Come hear what Wesley has to say!

Thank You Caroline and The Lost Province

We were so fortunate to have Caroline Renfro of Lost Province Center for Cultural Arts speak to the Ashe Dems on April 23 about the organization's vision for the Historic Lansing School where they are located. The building was constructed by the WPA. Lost Province envisions developing a strong educational component, including the culinary arts, as well as exhibition and hospitality options.

April 13 Litter Sweep

Many thanks to our hearty Ashe Dems who helped clean litter and recyclables from our adopted road, West Deep Ford Road, West Jefferson. It was a very windy day. But our team hung in there to help Keep Ashe Beautiful.

Ashe Dem Convention Highlights

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.

Impressive Turnout at Ashe Dem Precinct Organization Meeting

Over 40 Ashe County Democratic Party precinct members attended the Precinct Organization Meeting on February 17, 2024, at Family Central in Jefferson. This meeting was necessary to organize precincts and select delegates who would vote at the Ashe County Democratic Party Convention on March 16, 2024. The meeting was fun and interesting and provided Ashe Dems with Dem fellowship and the group heard from four local candidates, Ben Massey, Jr., Nancy Weaver-Hoffman, Tanya Robinson, and Ann Rose.  Here are some photos of the event.
