A Message From Our New Chair

Thank you for all that you do.  I am honored to be part of the team serving you.  As you may know, the Solano County Democratic Central Committee is the local arm of the California Democratic Party and works to support the state and national party and its candidates, as well as local candidates who support the party and its platform. 

The Central Committee meets the 4th Wednesday of every month (except for November and December), and currently meet virtually via Zoom.  If you wish to attend our meeting, please contact our Information Resource Officer at [email protected]

As we look to the November election, the differences between the two major parties could not be clearer.  We believe that all eligible citizens should be able to vote and have their votes counted; that all individuals deserve to be treated equally, with respect and dignity; and that a person’s right to make their own decisions regarding reproductive health should be safeguarded.  We are committed to economic and social justice for every individual; and are committed to the task of making the American Ideal and a sustainable world a reality for all, for today and generations yet to come. 

As Democrats we are ever mindful that, in the words of Senator Edward Kennedy, “for all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”

Our goal is to provide a role for every interested Democrat to be involved in the future of the Democratic Party, as well as our community, state, and nation.  Please join us. 

Go Dems,

Don Lowrie
