Herb Green Event 2017

On April 29, 2017 we held our annual Herb Green picnic. The purpose of this event is to honor the late Herb Green who was an influential Gwinnett Democrat and labor leader.   We always have great food, a good speaker and we give out the Herb Green Award to one of the volunteers.  We abide by Herb Green’s wishes that this event should be free an open to all.

This year Democratic Party of Georgia First Vice Chair Nikema Williams joined us and gave a great speech.  Our dedicated volunteer, Claudette Forbes won the Herb Green award.

In addition to great food, we always have an auction to raise money for the party.  Folks bring or buy items to be sold.  This year, State Representative Dewey McClain was our auction MC and he did a wonderful job.

Enjoy the photos below of all the great Democrats who attended the event.

DPG State Dinner 2017

Last week, members of the Gwinnett Democratic Party attended the Democratic Party State Dinner at the Hyatt Regency.  Rep. Maxine Waters gave a rousing speech to a sold-out crowd. Congressional Candidate Jon Ossoff also made a brief speech.

Here are photos of your fellow Gwinnett Democrats at the dinner.

Herb Green Picnic

Our annual Herb Green picnic was a smashing success last Saturday.  It was well attended, the food was great and Leader Stacey Abrams and Chairman Dubose Porter joined us as speakers.  Also in attendance was our Democratic delegation from the Gold Dome –  Senator Steven Henson, Senator Curt Thompson, Senator Vincent Fort,  Rep. Dewey McClain, Rep Hugh Floyd, Rep.  Pedro Marin , Rep. Karen Bennett and a huge crowd of wonderful Democrats!

We want to also extend a huge thank you to our organizers, Claudette Forbes, Cheryl Williams and George Williams and all those who came early to setup and stayed afterwards to clean up.
