President's Welcome

It is my honor to welcome you to the new Mahoning County Young Democrats website. 

In less than one year that this executive team has been in place, membership has grown by nearly 200%. We have worked hard to build the profile of the organization and to bring about the mission of our first term: Breaking down barriers. I would be remiss if I did not begin this welcome by thanking all of our officers for their relentless pursuit of empowering our generation. 

As of May of this year, our organization hosted the state wide winter meeting of the Ohio Young Democrats, an opportunity we used to show off our city. We also held our first ever candidates forum, geared entirely to the millennial generation that was attended by nearly 100 members of the community. 

We have an exciting second half of the year planned as we work to continue to grow the organization, and achieve our goals. I hope that you enjoy your stay with our website and you will consider joining us, if you have not already done so.

Our History

MCYD was founded in 2016 by a group of fifteen young progressive individuals who wanted to create an organization specifically for young Democrats. Since then, MCYD has grown into the fifth largest Young Democrats organization in the state of Ohio. 

Our Philosophy

MCYD believes that at the core of democracy is involvement. We strive to find ways to empower young people to get involved in the political process and to support candidates that align with our vision for Mahoning County. 

Further, MCYD believes that by creating an inclusive, diverse environment and by hosting a variety of events, MCYD breaks down barriers between young people and their government. 

So, what does MCYD do? See for yourself!

Paid for by the Mahoning County Young Democrats. Not endorsed by any candidate or their committee.

Dr. Alexis Smith Alswaeer, Treasurer. PO Box 3153, Boardman OH, 44513.
