Democrats throughout the district and across the state are united by our shared values. These values define who we are and what we stand for.
America is an idea—one that has endured and evolved through war and depression, prevailed over fascism and communism, and radiated hope to far distant corners of the earth. Americans believe that diversity is our greatest strength. That protest is among the highest forms of patriotism. That our fates and fortunes are bound to rise and fall together. That even when we fall short of our highest ideals, we never stop trying to build a more perfect union.
Excerpted from the Democratic Party Platform
We offer a platform that secures the rights of our children, protects the integrity and dignity of the elderly, and promotes the right of working men and women across this State to compete freely and equally for economic advancement and self-fulfillment.
Our Party seeks a proper balance between self-interest and the common interest. We are unshakeable in our commitment to fairness, freedom, justice and equity as we pursue a society that is more prosperous, better educated, safer, and healthier.
We believe in honest, ethical, transparent, and accountable government.
We believe that our democracy depends on a well-funded public education system that treats educators with dignity and respect.
We believe that adequate health care and housing must be accessible to all and that homelessness, illiteracy, and poverty must be eradicated from every corner of our State.
We believe in the protection and preservation of our environment.
