ACDC Mission and Vision
the democratic party is the party of diversity and inclusion
The Party of everyday people, for the people, by the people. Freedom, fairness, and opportunity for all, regardless of what they believe, who they are, and where they come from are the founding principles of the Albany County Democratic Committee.
The people who represent the Albany County Democratic Committee work hard year-round, in communities, government, and local organizations to elect Democrats in the Empire state, while holding Republicans accountable across the board. We are dedicated to strengthening the Democratic Party to ensure that all people are able to live, work and thrive in our county, our state, and our nation.
The Albany County Democratic Commitee is governed by a set of bylaws. They are available here.
