Club History

North Dallas Democrats HD 102 (NDD102) was founded in early 2004 by Anthony Pace, Precinct Chair 1811 and Robert Franklin Precinct Chair 1802.  Precinct Chairs in the 1800 precincts in HD 102 were the starting point of the club.  The first event held by the fledgling club was a Primary Forum at the Fretz Park Recreational Center in 2004.  This is the Club’s signature event and has also been held in 2006 and 2008. 

NDD102 in 2004 primarily focused on Harriet Miller’s Race for State Representative and Martin Frost’s Congressional Race.  Although both races were unsuccessful, they served as a starting point for activism in HD 102.  In 2006, the club was again involved with Harriet Miller’s second attempt to win in HD 102.

In 2007,  the club recruited Carol Kent to run for State Representative.  Club members formed the initial campaign team.  Anthony Pace was the initial campaign manager, Janice Schwarz, Precinct Chair 1809, was the field director, Lenna Webb was the campaign treasurer and both Bob Franklin and John Knutson, Precinct Chair 1806 served as advisors to the campaign.

The club was renamed Far North Dallas Democrats (FNDD) in 2009 to reflect the club’s focus beyond House District 102. FNDD’s role in Carol’s election in 2008 was the greatest accomplishment of the club to date.  The Club will continue to focus on identifying, recruiting and supporting candidates in our area.
