Franklin County Grassroots Democrats
Our vision for Franklin County is simple. We want everyday people to have a voice in the decisions that impact our lives and our communities. For too long, a wealthy and powerful few have made decisions for our communities.
We believe it’s up to all of us to bring transparency, accountability and democracy back to our local Democratic Party. We have a plan to transform the party from the ground-up by limiting the influence of big money in politics and creating a fair playing field for everyone to participate.
Our Core Values
We are committed to concretely improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods. We feel underrepresented and undervalued by the current political leadership in Franklin County, and we have the courage to think big and challenge the status quo. We share a belief in:
People. We trust in people and our capacity to make decisions for our communities.
Fairness. We work toward a fairer economy and society.
Participation. When democratic participation is small and people are divided, the wealthy and powerful win. When we all come together, we can transform our communities.
Collaboration. We aim to help build a society that embraces new tools and processes for sharing and cooperation.
Sustainability. We help create more sustainable, vibrant, and resilient communities.
Democracy. We believe decision-making should be open, transparent, collaborative, and focused on those who will be most impacted. We aim to rebuild trust in our neighborhoods and provide people with meaningful opportunities to provide feedback and input.
