CAUCUS TO ELECT DELEGATES TO STATE CONVENTION
Registered Democrats in Beverly will be holding a caucus at the Beverly Public Library, 32 Essex Street, Beverly, in the Barnet Gallery, on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 10 AM to elect delegates and alternates to the 2016 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across Massachusetts will gather to adopt a new Action Agenda. The Convention will be held on Saturday, June 4th at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell.
“This is going to be an exciting year as we Massachusetts Democrats work on the presidential election, both here in Massachusetts and across the country,” commented Democratic National Committee Woman, Kate Donaghue. “In addition to the normal proceedings, the June convention is going to focus on training in party building, electoral techniques and issue-based organizing.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Beverly (as of January 31, 2016 within the ward from which they are running as delegates), and the Committee welcomes participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. In the spirit of inclusion, youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be “add-on” delegates.
The Beverly Democratic City Committee normally meets on the second Tuesday of the month at the Beverly Public Library (if available). For more information on the caucus or the committee, please contact Chairman Duane Anderson at email@example.com, 978-922-2368 or check out our website at www.bevdems.org
There will be a meeting on Tuesday, January 12 at 7:30 PM at the Beverly Public Library, 32 Essex Street, Beverly.
We are in need of two volunteers to fill the roles of Treasurer and Recording Secretary. For more information, or if you know of anyone who might be willing to help, please have them contact Duane Anderson at 978-922-2368 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to thank Jim Davies and Robert Pierce for doing such great jobs in these roles for the past few years. THANK YOU, JIM AND ROBERT!!
Members are reminded that it is time to pay your annual dues; $25 per person or $40 per couple. While dues are voluntary, they are essential in order to support our efforts, especially important in a Presidential election year when we will need to run a headquarters in our fair city.
If you have any questions or would like to add items to the agenda for the January meeting, please contact Chairman Duane Anderson at the email or phone number listed above.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR GOOD DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS! (or as the GOP insists, all good Democrat friends) :-)
