As the local arm of the state Democratic Party, the 14th District Democratic Committee works to elect candidates who support the issues that are important in our community. We live where you live, work where you work and fight for the local issues you care about the most:
We’re committed to aiding all residents of the 14th District, with a livable wage, affordable housing and day care, paid family and medical leave, and community resources for those in need.
To improve our schools, we support increased funding for teachers and facilities, more apprenticeships and vocational tracks for high school students, and debt-free college.
Let’s create an economy that works for everyone, with good-paying jobs, a $15 minimum wage and comprehensive benefits to make a better life for all Delawareans.
As residents of ecologically sensitive beach communities, together we will work to protect the environment, ensure clean drinking water, reduce runoff and manage storm surges.
Achieving universal health care will only happen if we fight for access to women’s health care, lower prescription drug prices, programs treating opioid addiction and services for children.
Through sensible land-use planning, together we will work to limit development, reduce overall density, ease congestion, expand public transit and improve local infrastructure.
We’re the party of inclusion, promoting tolerance among people of all races, religions and backgrounds, protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community and defending voting rights for all.
We support equitable budget and tax policies that preserve Social Security and Medicare, and ensure that 14th District residents receive their fair share from state and county tax revenues.
We meet on the second Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at the Iron Hill Brewery (19815 Coastal Highway, Rehoboth Beach). For further information, contact Cheryl Fruchtman at DE14RDDems@gmail.com
The 2022 election campaign is already in full swing. With dozens of seats up for grabs in the Delaware General Assembly and Democrats defending slim majorities in the U.S. Congress, Delaware Democrats are working hard to inform, register and motivate voters.
As a member of the 14th District Democratic Committee, you can help elect Democrats to local, state and national office. In 2020, we provided critical support to candidates by sending thousands of letters, raising thousands of dollars and participating in Get Out the Vote drives.
Join us by emailing Committee Secretary Cheryl Fruchtman to express interest.
Several other organizations that support Democrats are seeking volunteers in the next election cycle:
Vote Forward volunteers send handwritten letters to unregistered and low-propensity voters—particularly in battleground states—encouraging them to vote. In 2020, volunteers sent more than 20 million postcards, boosting voter turnout nationwide and in the Georgia runoffs.
Rock the Vote is focused on building the youth vote with education and registration initiatives. Since its founding by music executives in 1990, the group has registered more than 12 million voters.
Environmental Voter Project identifies environmentalists and works to engage them in the political process. In 2020, the program targeted 1.8 million non-voters in 12 key states, and turned 607,000 into voters.
Force Multiplier is an independent, volunteer fundraising organization that supports candidates in critical toss-up states to ensure a Democratic majority in the U.S. House and Senate. For the 2022 election cycle, the group has already raised $10 million for candidates and groups to make sure people can and do vote.
Postcards to Voters are friendly, handwritten reminders from volunteers to targeted voters with the goal of giving Democrats a winning edge in key races. Launched in 2017 to help Sen. Jon Ossoff win his seat in Georgia, the group now has over 75,000 volunteers who have written 8 million postcards in over 200 close campaigns across the country.
Markers For Democracy focuses on various forms of activism to promote the election of Democrats all over the country. Through handwritten postcards, phone banking and text banking, the group promotes voter participation by informing registered Democrats of upcoming elections, vote-by-mail registration and early voting.
