Congratulations to everyone and thank you for your hard work to ensure the Blue Wave of 2020!!!
Now it’s time to prepare for the Troy Dem Club (TDC) Officers Election coming up on January 28, 2021. Our club works best when everyone gets involved, so members with any amount of experience in the club – from old hands to brand newbies – are welcomed and encouraged to run for office. Love the club? Wish we did things differently? Become an officer to decide our future direction!
To run for office, and to vote, you need to have been a member of both the TDC and the Michigan Dem Party (MDP) for at least 30 days.
As of today, you may pay for a new TDC membership, or renew your current one, and that will carry over through December of 2021.
