About the Cabarrus Dems

Cabarrus is the third fastest-growing county in North Carolina,

and we're adding new Democrats to our ranks each and every day!  

 

With nearly 200,000 citizens now calling Concord, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, Locust, Midland and Mount Pleasant home, we have a chance to make a huge impact in elections at the local, state and national level.

If you believe in equality for all Americans, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual identity or orientation, and economic status, then you have a place here.

If you are passionate about protecting our environment and investing in public education,

then you are likely a Democrat.  

 

For those of us who acknowledge that we are all better when we have equal,

affordable access to healthcare, then you are with us.

"You never have to ask anyone's permission to lead.

Just lead."

Vice Pres. Kamala Harris

In 1941, Freedom of Speech was defined as a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community to articulate one's opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or sanction.

Everyone has the right to a standard of living including food, clothing, housing, medical care and necessary social services.  This includes the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

We are a nation of over 300 million strong coming from many places bringing a wealth of religious history.  Whether Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist or other religion, we all have a right to practice our beliefs without fear of oppression or laws stipulating one religion is above another.

Freedom of Worship

No one should be afraid to walk outside their home, send their children to school, go to their job, attend a house of worship or be subjected to abuse of power.  Fear has no place between countries, no place between a government and its people and no place between people.

Freedom from Fear

Our Platform

Our platform is inspired by the Four Freedoms as defined by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt:

Freedom of Speech,

Freedom of Worship,

Freedom from Want,

 and Freedom from Fear. 

We believe diversity is our strength.  It doesn't matter where you came from; we pledge allegiance to the same flag and country.  We cherish the same constitution.  We embrace democracy and our enduring republic.
 
We want to deliver an improved system of governance; one that focuses on you and the issues you care about most.  Our candidates will work on behalf of all the people to put forth policies that will improve lives and create an economy that lifts everyone regardless of age, race, gender, religion, creed, affiliation or identity.

 

"Be yourself. Know your power.

Have confidence in what you have to contribute."

Rep. Nancy Pelosi
