Welcome to the Montgomery County Democratic Party!
We are excited that you’re here. One of our major goals is to grow our party in order to have a meaningful impact on our local, state, and national governments. The fact that you are reading this shows that you have an interest in making an impact, too.
It’s been said that all politics are local. The county party is about as local as it gets. We want this website to serve as a resource for information about our communities and local issues as much or more than as a platform to share Democratic Party principles and goals.
Please use the Contact tab to share your ideas and concerns or to ask questions about our organization. We welcome your thoughts about what is most important to Montgomery Countians.
So consider yourself invited to join us in our endeavors! We meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Please use Calendar tab for more information or the Contact tab if needed.
Again, thank you for visiting our site. We hope you’ll consider becoming an active participant in the party!
Carol Sanders, Chair
Greg Wilkinson, Vice Chair
Chris Harrell, Secretary
Liz Allen, Treasurer
Change starts at the local level. County parties play a key role in getting out the vote, raising awareness on issues affecting Kansans, and keeping communities involved. County parties are a major reason why I’m in office. Without your voice, without your efforts — I wouldn’t have made it this far. I want to say thank you for your tireless work and please continue the fight to keep Kansans involved and engaged.

‘All politics is local’, a phrase closely associated with the former Democratic Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill, is especially relevant today. The opportunity to move our communities to be more innovative in regard to protecting our environment and protecting freedom for all individuals begins at the local level in our cities, counties, and school boards. Now is the time for good Kansas Democrats to step up and run for local offices in 2019.
Chair, Kansas Democratic Party
I cannot stress enough the importance of the county party. Grass roots is really the foundation of any political party. The county party also gives people an opportunity to feel enfranchised in our political process. During all the years I was growing up and in my young adulthood, we had so many Montgomery County Democrats that we packed a meeting place. We need to get back to that. I believe our new leadership will be a re-boot to the MCDCC.
