Introduction to the Largo/Mid-Pinellas Democratic Club
We are an active group of more than one hundred (100) members in mid-Pinellas County, Florida, who seek to stimulate interest in political and governmental affairs; to strengthen and to further the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party; to provide reasonable and ongoing financial support to the county Democratic Executive Committee; to promote participation among Democrats; to assist in identifying prospective Democratic candidates; to support and elect the duly selected nominees of the Democratic Party in national, state, and local campaigns; and to foster good fellowship among Democrats.
We meet on the third Monday of each month, at 7:00 p.m., at the Acropol Restaurant, 1170 Starkey Rd., Largo (Click on restaurant name for map).
We participate in Voter Registration drives; we volunteer to work for candidates (making phone calls, knocking on doors); we donate to candidates. We participate in Social Actions (protests, rallies, petition gathering).
We support community efforts such as local Food Banks, efforts to assist the homeless, efforts to assist local programs for at-risk youth.
We are a Community
Being a Club member is fun and informative!
Each year we sponsor a Politics in the Park picnic to bring together candidates, elected officials, and voters. This fosters conversations that build relationships between the candidates/electeds and you, their constituents.
We also have a Holiday Potluck, a purely social occasion to further encourage fellowship among our members.fellowship among our members.

Why Join the Largo-Mid-Pinellas Democratic Club
The club provides a variety of ways to stay informed and involved in local, county, state and national political discussions. But we’re not just about talk. We will be part of the action in finding the best candidates and getting them elected, as well as supporting the most important causes. We will write letters, make phone calls, knock on doors, register voters, and whatever else it takes to bring change to our communities, our county and our state. But, just as important, we also want to make time to enjoy each other’s company and celebrate each other’s efforts at social events throughout the year. Grassroots politics is effective and fun!
