Part of the crew on move-in day on Sept. 5, 2020, at the Linn Dems Campaign Office on Santiam Highway in Albany. From left are Jackie Montague, Brenda Sterner, Wendy Nilsen and Paula Connaghan. The location proved to be a great one for the office, which closed after the Nov. 3, 2020, general election.
Linn County is divided into precincts. Each precinct has at least two Precinct Committee People (PCPs). PCPs are the most grassroots-level building block of the Linn County Democratic Central Committee and the Democratic Party of Oregon. They are an important driving force behind registering voters, getting out the word on candidates and helping Democrats understand the party’s structure, process, and platform. They are the people who go out, walk neighborhoods, and connect with and activate Oregonians, talking to Democratic and non-affiliated voters. PCPs also vote at Linn County Democratic Central Committee meetings. For more information or to receive a PCP application form, contact Mark Leonard.
Become a Neighborhood Leader
The Neighborhood Leader Program offers Democrats an opportunity to reach out to their closest Democratic neighbors – to connect, to hear their concerns and to help them cast informed votes in each election. Neighborhood Leaders receive a list and map of approximately 35 registered Democrats in their immediate neighborhood. Monthly get-togethers (via Zoom in COVID times) give Neighborhood Leaders an opportunity to share experiences, problem-solve, receive additional training, and generally have fun! For more information, click here or contact Nancy Greenman.
