 Before her election to the state legislature, Sen. Dayna Polehanki was a leader in the classroom.

She is a two-time Teacher of the Year award winner and has almost 19 years of experience in the classroom.

As a public school teacher and small business owner, Polehanki understands how policies affect our ability to prepare students for college, skilled-trades training and good-paying jobs. She is a champion for better investment in public schools and roads, as well as policies that lower prescription drug prices and that protect our air and water.

          "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the

                ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”  - Barack Obama


The Canton Democratic Club was formed in 2013 to elect democrats, advocate for progressive values, and build progressive leadership. We believe that democracy thrives when informed citizens actively participate in the political process through advocacy, action and discussion. Unfortunately, we now see how fragile our democracy can be. Everyday, it seems as if we are witnessing an assault on the values that we hold dear. Ill-conceived tweets from the White House seek to divide us and threaten our faith in our democratic institutions. There is a systematic dismantling of our healthcare, voting rights, civil rights and economic security.


Now is the time for action! We must work for change and it begins within our own community. It is a day to day, issue by issue battle which requires us to be united as a party as never before with battles to come including healthcare, taxes, climate and the next Presidential Election in 2020.


We are your neighbors, your friends, your school teachers, your union members, and your elected officials. We have close to 200 members. Every day we are building a larger, more diverse and inclusive membership. The Democratic Party in Canton is stronger than ever.  Join Today!

Club Monthly Meetings & Social Event Hour

Monthly Meeting

image9

Membership meetings occur the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7pm-8:30 pm, followed by a social hour at a Canton establishment. Our meetings provide an opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers invited to discuss hot topics in all levels of government, plus updates from our Elected Representatives. 

The Club provides us with an unparalleled chance to meet candidates and ask questions about their platforms. In fact, leading up to the 2020 primary elections, most Michigan candidates running for local, state and federal contests spoke at least once at our meetings or events. 


Social Event Hour

The Social Event Hour occurs immediately following our monthly meetings from 8:45-10pm. We believe that our community has many great things to offer and we want you to come and experience them with us.  Each month the Canton Democratic Club chooses a different Canton business to go to after our monthly meeting.  This is an opportunity for club members, guests, volunteers, candidates and elected officials to gather in a less formal setting to get to know each other on a more personal level while trying the many different restaurants and gathering places throughout Canton Township. We advertise the locations of our events each month on our social media pages. Please join us at one of our monthly Social Event Hours. We look forward to seeing you at the next gathering!


Past Social Event Hours were held at:

JB's Smokehouse

Tony Sacco's Pizza

Authentikka Canton

Shakers Bar & Grill

La Shisho Palace

Buffalo Wild Wings

Basement Burger Bar
