Our Platform

Mission Statement


The Park County Democratic Central Committee

1. Recruit, support, and help elect candidates for public office who uphold the values and

philosophy of the Democratic Party.  

2. Raise community awareness regarding issues important to the citizens of Park County, consistent with the platform of the Democratic Party.

3. Act to protect the voting rights of Park County citizens and promote free and fair elections.

4. Advocate on behalf of Park County residents on issues important to Democratic principles in order to promote, pass, and enact legislation.

United By a Common Goal


The Park County Democratic Central Committee works with county, state, and the national Democratic Committees to uphold the doctrines of the U.S. Constitution. We seek to ensure equality for all, including access to education and health care; dependable employment with a living wage; privacy of persons, property, and communications; and our right to participate in the democratic process. We work cooperatively within our communities to improve the lives of our citizens, our environment, and our world.

We constantly encourage citizens to engage in the democratic process, to become informed voters—and to vote. Currently, we also participate in twice yearly Adopt-a-Highway clean ups as well as in the annual Spring Trail Clean Up program.  

Please join us at our regular meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, from 5:30- 6:30 pm at the Park County Livingston Public Library.

We always welcome new members!

"Climate Change: Now What? Creating a Sustainable Future Today" Lecture Presented by Utah Physicist Dr. Rob Davies

6:30 pm Lecture followed by 8 pm Panel and Community Forum
3:30 pm Master Class
5 pm Tabling and Bites
Inspiration Hall in Norm Asbjornson Hall on MSU Campus

Rob Davies, physicist and professor of professional practice at Utah State University, will present a lecture about how the climate crisis is changing our world today at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, in Inspiration Hall in Montana State University’s Norm Asbjornson Hall.

The lecture, which will discuss far-reaching global effects to disturbances in local mountain communities, is part of an event, “Climate Change, Now What? Creating a Sustainable Future, Today.” The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion and preceded by a master class. All events in the series are free.

The members of the panel discussion will include Patrick Holmes, policy adviser for natural resources in the Office of the Governor; Bozeman City Commissioner Terry Cunningham; Dan Stevenson, associate vice president for MSU University Services; and Termaine Awanaakii (Rattle Woman), climate change coordinator for the Blackfeet Tribe.

The lecture will be preceded by a master class that will allow students to discuss possible career paths and opportunities for tangible action and solutions. The class, which will also be open to the public if space is available, will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Inspiration Hall and will be followed by a reception.

Davies is a physicist who focuses on atmospheric physics, surface physics and quantum optics. He has spent more than a decade working in critical science communication. He has been a project scientist for USU’s Space Dynamics Laboratory, technical liaison for NASA’s International Space Station project, physicist and climate change communicator with the Utah Climate Center, and an officer and meteorologist in the U.S. Air Force. 

“The world now faces a bona fide crisis,” Davies said. “A great deal is beginning to shift in our response to climate change; however, it does not yet come close to rising to the response that is required.” He added that humanity has technology to help respond to climate change but needs the resolve to act.

“Our goal in providing this lecture, panel and master class is to expose our campus and community to not just the science behind the climate crisis but also the solutions available to all of us, right here at the local level,” said Paul Lachapelle, professor in the Department of Political Science and MSU Extension who is an organizer of the event.

Community Outreach and Programs

The Park County Democratic Central Committee is dedicated to enhancing our community through various projects; one which is Adopt-a-Highway. On Saturday, May 19th, ten members collected 66 bags of trash, two RV awnings, tires, sleds, and assorted other  items that littered I-90. We participate in this event at least twice a year and hope to inspire other groups and citizens to join us in keeping our highways clean and our community healthy. Take a look through our PHOTO GALLERY above to see our volunteers in action.
