Meeting on April 10, 2018

April 3rd, 2018 by secretary
We will have a Reorganizational Meeting on Tuesday, April 10th at the Beverly Farms Library on Vine St. at 7:30 PM.
At this meeting, we will elect new officers for the City Committee as a whole (Chair, Vice Chair, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer and Affirmative Action Officer) and officers for the six wards in Beverly (Chair, Secretary, Treasurer & Affirmative Action Officer). We have to have at least three people from each ward present in order to elect the ward officers.
As many of you know, Duane Anderson is stepping down as City Chair after serving so well in that position for the past 25 years. We are deeply grateful to him for his leadership, dedication and hard work for more than two decades. (More on that in a later post.) Jim Thompson has expressed a desire and willingness to serve as City Chair. To our knowledge, no one else has come forward to run, but if anyone wants to serve in any of these offices, please contact Duane at or call 978-922-2368.

Caucus on March 10, 2018

February 27th, 2018 by secretary
The Beverly Democratic City Committee is holding a Caucus for *registered Democrats on Sat., March 10, in the Barnet Gallery room at the Beverly Public Library, 32 Essex St., at 10 AM (please arrive at least 15 minutes early), to elect delegates, by their wards, to the State Convention to be held in Worcester on June 2. Beverly can elect a total of 19 regular delegates, plus alternate delegates at our Caucus. (Alternates get to vote at the Convention if regular delegates are unable to for some reason.) This year delegates will vote to determine which statewide candidates will be on the Democratic ticket in the 2018 Primary Election in September, so we will be choosing nominees for governor and all our constitutional officers. (Note, caucus was originally scheduled for March 3, but was postponed because of the storm.)

In addition to being elected as regular delegates and alternate delegates, it’s also possible to become an add-on delegate in one of these four categories:  Youth (under 35), Disabled, Minority and LGBTQ. While you do not have to attend the Caucus to be an add-on, preference will be given to those who do attend the Caucus. Add-on forms will be available at the Caucus.

The fee to be a delegate or alternate is $75; $50  for senior/student/disabled. Deadline to pay fee is 4/20/18, after which a $25 late fee will apply. Forms will be provided at the Caucus.
If anyone is unable to pay the delegate fee, a waiver can be requested, and such requests are nearly always approved. Fee Waiver application forms will also be available at the Caucus.
Parking at or near the library will be limited, so this is a reminder to feed the meters/kiosks so that you don’t get a ticket. Please allow a couple of hours for the Caucus, and be inside the downstairs meeting room no later than 9:45 AM.

*Although it will be possible to register at the caucus, we urge all who are planning to attend to make sure their registrations as Democrats are in order prior to the caucus. We anticipate a good turnout and want to avoid problems as best we can.

For more information on the Convention, go to or contact Chairman Duane Anderson phone 978-922-2368.
