About the Hancock County Democrats
The Hancock County Democrats are dedicated to progress. We are committed to addressing the needs of the approximately 9,000 county citizens who live with incomes below federal poverty guidelines and a middle class this is experiencing diminishing political influence. We are devoted to tackling the problems arising from ever increasing income inequality. We seek to make Hancock County safer and more hospitable for all of its residents. As Democrats we will only back candidates who are dedicated to these principles.
