Coast Democratic Club

of Mendocino County

Electing Progressive Democrats



  • Promote citizen participation and public education in support of progressive initiatives. Ex: health care access, living wages, unmet housing needs, and the environment. 

  • Support voter registration and increase turnout

  • Work to elect progressive candidates at all levels of government (local, state and national)



The Coast Democratic Club membership includes registered Democrats and progressive activists from Westport to Elk  and inland to Comptche).  Together we share progressive democratic values and a positive proactive vision for the future. 




Our Leadership Team (LT) prepares Club programs and agendas.

Final decisions on Club actions are made by the Club membership.
