“Opening a Savannah office is part of our 5% strategy,” said Mike Berlon, DPG Chairman. “We believe that we can raise Democratic turnout this election cycle and win many of the races in November. Having a headquarters in this part of the state allows us to strengthen our grassroots network close to home.”
Savannah residents will staff the office, located at 406 East Bay Street, after undergoing intensive training with the DPG. Georgia Democrats’ ultimate goal will be to provide a hub to organize, canvass and register new voters in Chatham County and beyond.
“When this state turns blue, we will point to Saturday as one of the main reasons,” said Berlon. “We’re happy that Congressman James Clyburn is making the trip to Savannah to congratulate us.”
All ages are welcome to the grand opening of Savannah’s Democratic Party of Georgia office at 406 East Bay Street on Saturday from 2 pm to 3:30 pm
