Our History

At the urging of former Cumberland County Chairman, Willis Kocher, we are undertaking a serious project at CCDC to remember our history and write it down. There are literally hundreds of dedicated Democrats who helped to build our Party over the years, and we do a disservice to them and our current Party of activists when we forget their names, their struggles, and the contributions they made.

We are inviting you to contribute to our “History Project” by sharing stories, names, key events, honorees, and awards that have been handed down over the years. Simply share your best recollections – even if some of the details are fuzzy – by emailing us today.
