The Mason District Democratic Committee (MDDC) is a component of the the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC). Membership is generally for a two-year term (members can join any time within a biennium, and must renew their membership each biennium). Members of the FCDC within each of the nine Board of Supervisors Districts comprise a Magisterial District Committee, e.g. Mason District Democratic Committee (according to the state Party plan, all local committees reorganize, i.e. elect new officers and committee chairmen, between the first and second Saturdays of December in odd years). Each Magisterial District Committee has members that represent their respective precincts, generally between 2 and 4 Committee members. The FCDC has several Standing Committees which have representatives from each Magisterial District Committee and these Standing Committees meet regularly.

Democratic Party History at a Glance
thanks to the Prince William County Democratic Committee
Over two centuries ago, a Virginia farmer united with others of similar political thought and a revolution was born. The entire world heard the cry of the new nation that resulted. That Virginian was Thomas Jefferson; the country was The United States of America; and the political party he would later found was the Democratic Party (about the DNC). Even from infancy, the Democratic Party has been committed to the ideal of government for the people, not government for government’s sake. A primary concern of the Democratic Party has always been the struggle for social equality.
