Our Beliefs

As the party of the people, the Elk County Democratic Committee supports programs and policies that work to improve the lives of our local citizens and allow small businesses to prosper.

We promote policies that allow our local businesses and manufacturers to be able to compete and thrive in a global economy.

We support working families and their ability to gain family sustaining jobs here in Elk County.

We encourage efforts to protect our environment for the next generation and for generations to come.

We support programs that protect children, the elderly, and the disabled.

We believe that access to early childhood through post secondary education along with access to affordable health care is vital to the future of our nation.

We support a government of the people, by the people and for the people, a government made up of elected officials that govern in the best interests of those that elected them, not special interest groups and outside donors.

We hold that all citizens, regardless of age, national origin, race, gender identification, sexual orientation, religion or disability, are created equal and must be afforded the same rights and protections by both our government and the private sector.

We seek common sense approaches to deal with the challenges that are faced in our townships, boroughs and cities, at the county level in Ridgway, at the state level in Harrisburg and at the federal level in Washington, DC.


We are Democrat Proud!
