Our Christmas Party Remembered

On December 16, 2015, in Candidates, Democratic Party, Election, Event, Uncategorized, by Christian County Democrats

December 5th at the Fremont Hills Country Club, the Christian County Democratic Central Committee had a very successful fundraiser/party. We had two Missouri Democratic candidates and our Democratic County Commissioner speaking, a popular local singer and storyteller entertaining, and the Cattywampus Band enlivening it all.  And we all agreed that the dinner provided by Fremont Hills was excellent.

Sue Ann Childers (Christian County Commissioner) began the talks and said she was open to listening to our concerns. Dr. Brad Bradshaw (running for Missouri Lt. Governor) received applause for his stance on Medicaid expansion and he told us of his plans for making Missouri #1 in medical research. Teresa Hensley (running for Missouri Attorney General) spoke to us about her experience as a prosecutor in Cass County and her dedication to seeking justice for all. Marideth Sisco (Ozark storyteller and singer) criticized the hostile environment of political discourse today and challenged us to question those telling untruths. She also sang a couple of her favorite songs. The Cattywampus Band played during dinner and after speeches.

Baskets and pies (prepared by our hardworking members) were auctioned off by Matt Patterson, and silent auction items were awarded to the highest bidder. The Jerry Litton Award was presented to Diane and Kent Stalder by David Lee who spoke of their dedication to Christian County Democrats.

Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who helped make this lovely party a success (especially the Billedo family)!

sheriff-badgeAt a special meeting of the Christian County Democratic Central Committee (CCDCC), held on May 22, members interviewed Ken Lovell and unanimously voted him to be our candidate for sheriff in the August 4 special election.

Lovell has years of experience in law enforcement, working in Clever, Republic, Branson, and Nixa police departments. He has also been working as Nixa’s school resource officer. He currently owns and runs A Bit of Country K9 Kennel in Nixa.

In addition, Lovell has 18 years of experience in law enforcement and plans on running for sheriff (as a Democrat) again in 2016. He would like to make a difference in our community and bring back professionalism to the office; he believes the department should have better contact with the community.

A fundraiser for Ken Lovell will be held by the CCDCC on Tuesday, June 30 at the Nixa Community Center Pavillon (McCauley Park), from 6-9pm. We hope our fellow Christian County Democrats will support our candidate by attending this event or by donating to his cause.

Christmas Fun and Frolicking with Christian County Democrats!

On December 18, 2014, in Event, by Christian County Democrats

We met at Fremont Hills Country Club on December 6th and enjoyed a very nice buffet, a good crowd of fellow Democrats, and an energetic speaker. Randy Bland, President of the UAW Local 710 in Kansas City, spoke about his union and unions in general. He emphasized that no union dues are used for political candidates and that not all union members are Democrats. Union members must approve candidates to support and once they do, members support those candidates vigorously. Most candidates who support union issues, such as prevailing wage and minimum wage, happen to be Democrats.

The Cattywampus Band again entertained us throughout the evening, and Matt Patterson served as auctioneer for the many baskets and other items up for sale. With pies going for as much as $70 and baskets up to $100, we were pleased with the outcome.

Thank you all that attended, those who sponsored, those who donated auction items, and those who sent in money but could not attend. This is a fun social event for local Democrats, but also a fundraiser for the Christian County Democratic Central Committee!
