The Galveston County Democratic Party makes use of various electronic means of communication to keep you informed. This email list and our two Facebook pages are our primary means of communication for known supporters. Facebook and other tools are used to grow our supporter base.
Most of you are aware of most of these resources, whether you use them or not. Some, who have recently provided their email as volunteers or meeting attendees, were provided this information when they were added to this county email list. However, to make sure we are all up-to-date on what’s available:
- If you are a member of Facebook, we have a group and a page. You can join our Galveston County Dems (GCD) Group
, where meeting notices are posted. This group is open for all members to share items of political interest with everyone else in the group. Contribute as you see fit, just never speak ill of any member of the group. Members are vetted as much as possible, so there are no known trolls in this group.
- To receive Facebook notifications of new communications from the GCDP, like our party Page
. This page is used exclusively for GCDP communications and promoting the party through paid Facebook ads. This page also gets notifications of activities posted in the GCD Facebook Group and users can leave messages for the party leadership on this page.
- Visit our GCDP web site
which includes a blog, contact information, a link for donations, and other state and county information. People who find us here can provide contact information, volunteer, get added to our county email list, etc. The web site is also connected to our GCDP Facebook Page and the county chair’s Twitter account to capture followers and Likes as potential new supporters. It also includes a unique phone number for people to leave voicemail.
- If you have a twitter account, we have four accounts you can to follow:
@BGTXGC, @GCDPChair, @galvestonyds, and @NdDems
- If you have an Instagram account, we post here
- If you'd like to receive GCDP text messages, text ADDME to 281-819-5235. This is the same phone number as on our web site where people can leave voicemail for party leadership if they don’t have any other means of contact.
For information on local non-partisan elections, elected official's names, office terms, bond issues, etc., please visit the specific web site for your local entity. (If someone would like to create a complete county list of websites for all city councils, high school and higher-learning boards of education, etc., we can create a webpage on the GCDP website to share that list.)
