This year, the students have spoken. The Young Democrats and Young Republicans clubs have made their debuts here at Hidden Valley High School.

When speaking to the founders, presidents, and sponsors of both clubs, there were some obvious differences and some similarities. For example, when founders and co-founders of the clubs were asked why they wanted to start the Young Democrat/Republican club, both had answered that the main reasoning behind the upbringing of these clubs, is that they wanted to attract like-minded people who wanted a safe space to share their political views without ridicule or disregard.

The Young Democrats founder and President Patrick Bagby (12) stated that he wanted a place to share his points of view with others without having arguments.

“As the minority in the political stuff at Hidden Valley, it nice to have a little place where you can talk to like-minded people,” said Bagby (12).

The Young Republicans club founder and President, Mason Cobbler (12) declared that he wanted to start the club to help those in our school, no matter what side of the party you’re a part of, to learn about topics that come up during the meetings and to help those be politically informed and politically educated.

“Me and a few of my friends were definitely interested in making a political club, and after we heard about the Young Democrats, we thought it would be a good match to also make a Young Republicans club and just as a group that can expand on ideas and really make a difference at Hidden Valley,” said Cobbler (12).
