We’re glad you’re here

Melissa Midgett Dickerson, Chairperson DCDP

I love this place where I was born, where I have lived my life and now raise a family. I love the people, customs, and heritage that make the Outer Banks a place unlike any other—a place with a 400-year legacy of people not just surviving but rising above the storms of life.

You love the Outer Banks, too. You’re proud to call it home. In small shops, hotels, and restaurants, you serve the tourists who come here. For those who want to stay, you build, clean, improve, and maintain their homes.

You work the commercial-fishing jobs that underpin our economy. You navigate hazards daily and battle the elements year-round—all to provide for your family.

You tend to people’s health, financial, and recreational needs. You keep our county offices and services running smoothly. You teach, guide, and encourage our children. You ensure everyone’s safety.

But today, Outer Bankers face a political storm that challenges us to keep our heads above water. That’s why I invite you to join with the Dare County Democratic Party and help us turn the tide. We want to keep the laws, programs, and democratic institutions that sustain and empower everyone. And we want to fix the ones that don’t.

Dare Democrats offer a big tent with plenty of room for diverse opinions, ranging incomes, myriad cultures, and various lifestyles. But the one thing we all share is a love for the Outer Banks—the place where we all belong.
