Merrill Ring, Democratic Club of Claremont's VP/Spokesperson, Discusses DCC's History, Charter, Values, and Goals

Merrill Ring, the long-time Claremont resident, relates his life path as an involved Democrat and invaluable insight into the Democratic Club of Claremont. In his own uniquely conversational yet candid and engaging manner, Merrill describes the events and influences on his journey as an active Democrat to this point, particularly his selection to be part of the Democratic Party (just prior to Truman's defeat of Dewey...). He then treats the listener to a deft comparison/contrast of the seemingly subtle yet incredibly important differences between the Democratic and Republican party perspectives and core values.

In this first episode of what will become a regular series, Merrill then turns up the light on the history, charter, vision & values, and particularly the challenges the party and the DCC face in the upcoming election and years to come. Merrill explains the need, value, and benefits of getting involved as opposed to just watching from the sidelines. He then encourages everyone, regardless of political or social viewpoint or opinion, to take a few moments to check out the Democratic Club of Claremont, its value to the community, state, and country, and learn what it can do for you and you for the club.
