allied organizations

Here are a list and profiles of some organizations allied with the Shore Democrats.

We urge club members to contact or join those of particular interest
to foster greater understanding of one another's programs.

 

38th District

38th District
Democratic Committee

Eric E. West, Chair

537-2968

What is the 38th District Democratic Committee and how does its work differ from that of the Shore Democrats?

The Shore Democrats' service area includes Delaware's 38th District. While the club conducts educational activities and financially assists candidates, the committee is officially designated by the state and county Democratic parties "to support the mission and goals of the national, state and Sussex County Democratic Party and to work for the election of Democrats to public offices at the national, state and local levels." 

 

 

The committee’s most prominent public role is to organize election activities in the eight local election precincts that form the 38th Representative District.

It also holds an annual fundraiser, Picnic in the Park.

Interested Democrats are welcome to join the committee. Application may be made to Chairman Eric West (see information at left)

The public is invited to attend committee meetings, held at the South Coastal Library in Bethany Beach, at 7:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month.
