South Mecklenburg precincts now hold several regular social events. Called "A Dem Good Time," they began with every Third Thursday at Blackfinn Ballantyne from 6-8 pm (still going strong!). Matthews Democrats have held a few, and now there is a second ongoing social on First Thursdays at Brooklyn Pizza from 6-8 (Rea Rd & Colony Rd).
At the August 2 event, around 50 people came to talk with elected officials and candidates such as Trevor Fuller, Mecklenburg County Commissioner, and state senator Jeff Jackson.
Candidates drop by to share their messages, but it's also a great time to meet other friendly Democrats and find out about local opportunities to help the party!
Feel free to start your OWN Dem Good Time wherever you are! Events can be publicized via flyers, Facebook and Nextdoor, and word of mouth.
