Mission Statement

The mission of the Rocky River Democratic Club is to develop a strong community that supports the values of the Democratic Party and promotes its endorsed candidates in local, county, state and national elections.  It serves as a resource of actionable ways to promote Democratic Party values and defend challenges to them. The Club offers support to civic and community organizations that share Democratic values. The Rocky River Democratic Club sponsors community events to promote and educate its members on relevant and timely issues.  Club meetings provide an opportunity to meet fellow residents who share a common belief in sound, responsible government.
