Welcome to Our New Website

Bay Area New Democrats are excited about the launch of our new, more contemporary website. Check out all the tabs above and learn more about what we have to offer. Look for regular updates to the news posted above and contributions from board members to our BAND blog!

Field Work Opportunities!

If you have finally recovered from the busy 2008 election season, it is time to get involved again! All Houston city election campaigns are actively looking for field workers. BAND has not traditionally endorsed candidates in non-partisan races unless there is only a single Democratic candidate in the race. Ronald Green is the only Democratic candidate in the controller’s race, for example, and BAND does support him. In the current mayor’s race, we have three Democratic candidates, and some of our members are supporting each of them individually.

If you are interested in doing field work, please contact the people or links listed below:

Peter Brown – contact Doug Peterson at, or call him at 281-286-7631
