Welcome to the Lake County Democratic Committee’s website. As the recently elected Chairman of the Lake County Democratic Party, I am both please and proud to represent the Precinct Committeepersons and Vice-Precinct Committeepersons that are the backbone of our Party and I look forward to a very successful four year term.
Among the many improvements we intend to bring to the Party, first and foremost will be to improve and strengthen this website and enhance the manner and method in which we communicate with our constituents, including the use of Facebook and other forms of social media. It is critically important that, in these turbulent times we communicate effectively and quickly to our party members and friends. I am committed to making those improvements in the very near future.
In the meantime, the Lake County Democratic Party is moving forward in a positive direction. Within the first four months of my administration, we were able to have two of our Lake County elected officials named to the State Party Central Committee, those being Mike Repay, County Commissioner and Eddie Melton, State Senator. Our voice is now being heard load and strong in Indianapolis. In addition, we have strengthened our party by designating new Chairman for both the Cedar Lake and St. John Township/Town of St. John Precinct Organizations, both of whom are doing an exceptional job in attracting people to the Party. We all know that the upcoming 2018 election year is of vital importance to the Democrats and I expect that we will have quality candidates running for County Office, State Office and Precinct Committeeperson positions. It is an exciting time for our party and I look forward to working with all of you in the months and years ahead.
Thank you for your support and never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Reasons Why YOU Should Vote!
Voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard!
Your vote is your voice. When we vote, we are actually telling elected officials and lawmakers how we feel about education, public safety, social security, health care and other important issues.
One voice, one vote really does count!
Remember: there is power in numbers, and when we vote and get our family members to vote, we can truly make a difference. If you don’t vote for what you believe in, others will and you may not like the outcome.
Our children are depending on us to represent their voices too!
Because our children can’t vote, we have to do it for them. That’s how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing and other issues heard. When we vote, we are looking out for our kids and their futures.
Voting changes communities!
Do you ever wonder why one neighborhood gets passed over for things it needs, while another seems to get it all? One big reason is voting. When we vote, we can get results that we can actually see.
Vote to effect change!
It was through elections that we voted in officials who were champions for civil rights. Voting is our chance to make a difference in our own lives and within the world.
Believe it or not, voting is a way of honoring our history!
As long as our country has existed, there have been people who didn’t want us to vote. There were several freedom fighters that stood up for the right to vote. Well, those times may seem ancient, but there are still people today who don’t want us to vote. It’s now our turn to stand up and vote to preserve the honor of those who went before us.
Last but not least, because it gives you credibility!
Often times, we voice our concerns to elected officials. But if we aren’t voting, our concerns may not matter at all to them. Voting can actually give you the credibility to make your concerns a top priority for legislators.
