The name of this organization shall be the Ohio Democratic County Chairs Association.
ARTICLE II. PURPOSE
The purpose of this organization is to support, promote, build and perpetuate the Democratic Party on the National, State and County levels.
For more than 200 years, the Democratic Party has represented the interests of working families, fighting for equal opportunities and justice for men, women and children of all colors, beliefs and social backgrounds. Party founders believed that wealth and social status were not an entitlement to rule, but rather that a stable government could only be successful if built upon a broad, popular base of the people.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is the principal organization governing the United States Democratic Party on a day-to-day basis. While it is responsible for overseeing the process of writing a platform every four years, the DNC’s central focus is on campaign and political activity in support of Democratic Party candidates, and not on public policy. The DNC was established at the 1848 Democratic National Convention.
