In coordination with the Ohio Democratic Party, the mission and principles of the Jefferson County Democratic Party are:
We believe that the best government is one that is efficient, yet understanding – a government that is based not on systems or bureaucracies, but on people, ideas, and values.
We believe there is no substitute for fair and equal representation and strong public participation in a government chosen by election.
We believe that all Ohioans reap benefits when we, as a state, meet challenges together. We believe in the equality of all Ohio citizens and condemn any discrimination.
We believe in a society that strengthens Ohio’s families and protects our children.
We believe in the rights of all Ohioans to achieve economic security and find affordable housing, to seek good jobs at a livable wage, and protection for our workers in a growing, robust economy.
We believe in a society that puts the health, safety, and prosperity of its citizens first, one that promotes excellence in education, choices in quality health care and a healthy environment for all Ohio citizens.
We believe in a society that values community and protects all Ohio citizens from violence and crime.
We believe in a society that respects our elders, who deserve the right to retire with the resources they need and have earned to support themselves in their golden years.
And we believe in pursuing these ideals with honesty and integrity, with respect for the freedoms that we in Ohio are proud to call our own.
