Building the Bench

Let's get Democratic candidates in
Lodi, Lima, and Webster Townships!

Thanks to your leadership and steady hand, Washtenaw County has become a place where government delivers for the people, voting rights are protected, and folks inside and outside government collaborate to make a difference.

However, there is more work to be done. We need your help in recruiting Democratic candidates from a variety of backgrounds in Lodi Township, Lima Township, and Webster Township.

Why are we making this specific ask? Because no Republican has bested any Democrat in any race in these three townships since 2018, but there are still Republicans in these elected township roles because no Democrat filed to run in 2020.

Democrats that run for these positions stand a real shot at winning and leading with progressive values in these communities.

So tell a friend that would make a good public servant that 2024 is the time. Encourage folks to run as Democrats in these roles and coordinate with other candidates to give Democratic voters the opportunity to vote for Democrats to govern their townships.
