Greetings From Our New Chair, Diane Kinyon

Welcome all Democratic Central Committee Members, Alternates, Associates and Ex-Officos to our Committee!

As current Chair of the Committee, I am humbled to have this opportunity to welcome you and thank you for your commitment.   The past few years have been some of the best in current memory thanks to hard work of some dedicated Democrats. In the past twenty years Shasta County has become a “Red County” with majority Republicans registered. During that time, we were small and mighty, but it became more difficult to get Democratic candidates to run for offices, including our own Committee. In 2013, we were meeting in a rec room and passing the hat to buy stamps. The previous Chair, Rob Rowen, worked very hard to bring people in, to raise funds, and to right the ship, while running for State Senate himself.

2018 will see this Committee work toward the goal of turning our County back to Blue again that Rob championed and worked diligently to achieve. Voter Registration, Voter Engagement and Get Out The Vote are always the Big Three for Democrats and it is here, too.

But what does that mean? Should those be our priority for 2018? Or should we focus on reaching out to high school and college students with education about our Party? Or should we focus on chartering more Democratic Clubs? Or should we prioritize local candidate races? You represent your Democratic neighbors in Shasta County from voter registration to legislation, from Shasta County to Washington, DC. You are a very important part of the democratic process.

Everyone Has A Voice! We meet each month the second Monday at 6:00 PM at 900 Locust St, Redding where we have an office that will be open during campaign season. The Executive Board meets monthly, too. All meetings are open to the public. We have Standing Committees that assist with operations of our Committee. Also, we are making our presence visible again in Shasta County by attending Events and that takes volunteers.

We believe in diversity! We are for the People! We want all Democrats to feel welcome here. Thank you for joining! And my personal phone number is 530-355-6075 and I am here to help you with your questions.

In Solidarity,

Diane Kinyon

Chair DCCSC
