Platinum Membership

Platinum Members are the bedrock of our success.  Platinum Members give  us the financial strength to maintain a significant presence in a very red county and for that we are grateful.  

 

With the support of our Platinum members, we've created an interactive website, our own voter database, and a permanent headquarters in the heart of Geauga County. We are one of the very few Ohio counties to maintain a year-round place to welcome fellow Democrats and gather for events. The Biden, Rader, Obama, Clinton, Strickland and The Ohio Democratic Party have all used our headquarters to hit the ground early in their campaigns.   

 

Platinum members make an investment that has implications far beyond Geauga County.  Our Party plays a vital role in supporting candidates and officeholders at all levels. In 2020, our members distributed over 120,000 campaign signs across dozens of Ohio counties. This year, our members have already distributed tens of thousands of Ryan and Whaley signs across 58 Ohio Counties. Every Whaley sign you see this campaign season was distributed by our county Party.

 

None of this would be possible without our Platinum Members. They represent   the main way we fund our Party and pay for our headquarters. In 2022, we had more Platinum members than ever before.

 The combination of funding from our Platinum, Sustaining and Club members and the thousands of hours invested by our volunteers give us the staying power to elect and support candidates that share our values. Everyone in our Party is a volunteer.  No one gets paid.

 

In past years, we've  supported or hosted Senator Sherrod Brown, Ohio Supreme Court Justice Melody Stewart, Congressman Tim Ryan, Governor Ted Strickland, First Lady Frances Strickland, Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O'Neill, Representative John Patterson, Senator Capri Cafaro, Ohio Supreme Court Justise Elect and former  Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Lt. Governor Lee Fisher, Cuyahoga County Executives Armon Budish & Ed FitzGerald, Attorney General Richard Cordray, Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune, State Party Chair David Pepper, Representative Mark Schneider, Judge Mary Jane Trapp, Geauga Sheriff Dan McClellan, State Senator Joe Schavoni, Mayor Nan Whaley, Councilwoman Cheryl Stevens and TV celebrity Jerry Springer. 

 

Despite being in a red county, we've had many victories. In 2007, we helped to elect Governor Ted Strickland with a 57% victory in Geauga County.

In 2008, we played a pivotal role in getting Judge Cannon appointed to the 11th District Court of Appeals. In 2010, we helped elect Tom Wright to the Court of Appeals and in 2016 we helped re-elect him to that same position.

In 2011, we helped to elect Terri Stupica, the first female Judge ever to serve in a Geauga County courtroom. In 2012, we helped Judge Bill O'Neill win a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court and we assisted Senator Capri Cafaro win her re-election bid after being redistricted.

 

We helped Judge Rice and Judge Cannon win re-election in 2014. In the 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, and 2011 elections we assisted Democrats in school board, council, and township races. We now have 24 Democrats that serve voters in Geauga County.

In 2014, 2016, and 2018 we helped Dr. Patterson retain his seat in the Ohio Legislature.

 

In 2017, Judge Terri Stupica was re-elected with no opposition and five new Democrats were elected to local offices.

In 2018 we helped to elect Melody Stewart and Michael Donnelly to the Ohio Supreme Court and returned Mary Jane Trapp to the 11th District Court of Appeals.

In 2020, we helped the Biden/Harris team run up a 7,000,000 national vote plurality to win a decisive victory. We also worked hard to elect Judge Jennifer Brunner to the Ohio Supreme Court  giving Democrats three out of the seven seats on that Court.  We helped to return Judge Cindy Rice to the 11th District Court of Appeals and hosted Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley at our Steak Roast and Congressman Tim Ryan at our Annual Dinner.  

In 2022, we welcomed three statewide candidates, a state rep and Judge Tom Wright at our Steakroast. On October 29, we will host all three Supreme Court candidates at our Annual Dinner.
