This week I reviewed materials for my county Democratic Executive Committee fundraising committee meeting tonight. Like bathroom usage, fundraising is an activity that everyone knows is essential yet most of us don’t want to discuss. I live in a geographically large county with our Democrats clustered at each end, so next year we’d like to have two DEC campaign offices. We also have other expenses and the Florida Democratic Party expects county DECs to be self-funding, so we have to ask people for money … my least favorite part of political activism.
