Executive Committee

The BCDP Executive Committee is made up of one male District Representative and one female District Representative, and an alternate for each, elected from each of the 10 Blount County commission districts. In addition, the commission district with the largest Democratic vote in the most recent Tennessee gubernatorial election has an additional male and female District Representative.  District Representatives represent Democrats within their district and participate in governing the Blount County Democratic Party (for more detail about what they do see their job description).

The Executive Committee meets on the second Thursday of every month at the MLK Center in Alcoa.  The meeting is open to the public.  We welcome anyone who is interested in supporting the Democratic platform and participating in BCDP activities.
