Growing concern for bunker mentality and “unhinged” partisanship in the Governor’s office. Iowans lose healthcare, Reynolds passes the buck

Long held admiration for @mike_gronstal, because he lives the right ethic. No one watching, he’s stacking chairs after event in Woodbury.

Tonight’s sock game for the #HarryHopkins dinner. Born in Sioux City, raised in the Democratic Party.

Huge crowd to hear @SenatorHarkin at the @Demswoodbury #HarryHopkins dinner. Passionate speech for the cause of working people.

Instead of investing in public schools, job training, or rural Iowa, taxpayers have to pay off $144 million of debt.…

Good morning! Who’s ready for revenue estimates? 🤓☕️

Our public workers put in greater danger due to underfunding + budget incompetence of Gov’s office. Cutting worker safety nets is pathetic.…

About Us

About the Woodbury County Democrats

The Woodbury County Democrats exist simply to help Democratic candidates get elected. We concentrate on local elections, of course, Woodburys Dems

but we also help at the state and national levels as much as possible.   This is done through a variety of means — though primarily by giving local candidates as much exposure as possible.


The Central Committee is the backbone of the Woodbury County Democrats. The Central Committee meets monthly. Most members of the Central Committee are elected every two years during the precinct caucuses. Each precinct is represented on the Central Committee. Members may also be appointed by the Chair, and there are a number of at-large members. NOTE: Any interested Democrat may attend the Central Committee meetings!

The Executive Committee is a much smaller group that meets monthly to deal with the mundane details that crop up. Members of the Executive Committee tend to be more active with the party on a day-to-day basis.


The Woodbury County Democrats hold a number of recurring events, such as breakfasts, fundraisers, dinners, etc. Please check our calendar to see what’s coming up!
