Party Updates

Shontel Brown, Chairwoman of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, today announced a Transition Team to help analyze current party practices and make recommendations for future actions. During the campaign, Ms. Brown identified five priorities to help Democrats win:

  • Ensuring our party has the tools and resources to run effective campaigns;
  • Recruiting and training strong candidates for targeted races and supporting candidates in races throughout the county;
  • Having a strong, year-round fundraising team so our party has the resources to help candidates win elections;
  • Engaging and reengaging Democrats and affinity groups in our local political process while making sure that groups that seek to weaken or destroy us are not successful;
  • Supporting our ward clubs, precinct and executive committee members to help recruit new members and retain our existing members; and
  • Preparing our party for the 2018 mid-term elections.

Chairwoman Brown also promised to be accessible and to listen.  To that end, she announced meet and greets to hear from Democrats across the county, and that an online survey was launched for anyone to provide their thoughts and input about what is needed to accomplish.

The online survey link is on the home page of and can be shared with friends, colleagues and neighbors.

The Transition Team and outreach efforts will culminate in a comprehensive plan moving forward. The plan will be released shortly after the November election so Democrats can first focus on the general and then our future.

Ms. Brown hopes that the outreach process and having a comprehensive review of party process, approach and results will help create the best opportunity for winning in 2018 and beyond.
