Who We Are

The Sevier County Democratic Party works to elect qualified Democratic candidates, increase the quality of life for Sevier County residents, and support Democratic principles at home and beyond.  We are everyday people like you, working to make a positive difference in our world.

Below is a video of our Chair, Sara Thompson, speaking out against Warren Hurst, Sevier County Commissioner. He has made a mockery of this County and made it national news with his hateful rant against Democrats and Liberals, which morphed into a homophobic comment and finally a racist lament (only a small portion of which has been broadcasted). Sara was the only one in the room to stand and speak out against him. The rest of the commissioners sat through his several minute rant nodding and chuckling, without remorse until this hit the national news. Now they are sorry. Next election we would like to have 25 people to compete for every seat. Some of these guys have been in office 35-40 years due to lack of competition and voter apathy. EVERY ONE OF THEM SAID NOTHING while Hurst ranted and raved. We deserve better. We need people to run, hands on deck to support them, and funds to buy signs & ads. Be a part of the change. Attend a meeting and learn how you can run for office or help a great candidate. Send a donation to help us support those candidates:https://secure.actblue.com/donate/sevier-county
