Our Approach

The USC Democratic Committee is the official organization  of the Democratic Party in Upper St. Clair, PA.  Each member also serves on the Allegheny County Democratic Committee. In that capacity, we vote to endorse Democratic candidates for primary elections.


Committee Membership

Upper St. Clair is divided into 5 Wards and those Wards are further divided into 18 Districts (how to find your district). Each district is represented by two committee members of different genders. The committee members are elected by registered Democrats in their district for a four year term during a primary election. The committee members elect three officers, a Chair and Vice-Chair of different genders, and a Secretary. In the event of a vacancy the Chair can appoint an a Democrat from the district to serve the remainder of the term.
