The Charlotte County Democrats are volunteers from our community who work tirelessly to help their neighbors.  We value the dignity of work, of service, and of humanity.

Differences will always exist, and robust debate helps us find common ground, but we need to agree on common facts.  We know that America can achieve greatness again, but we will never get there if we embrace hatred and ignore scientific facts.

We have some hard work ahead of us as a county, state and nation.  Together we will prevail as the United States of America; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Democrats from across the state are united by shared values that define who we are and what we stand for. That means fighting to ensure all Floridians have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, what they’re worth, or who they love
