Franklin Democrats To Elect Delegates To State Convention
Democrats in Franklin will be holding a caucus on Monday, May 18 at 7 pm at the Alumni Restaurant, 391 East Central Street, Franklin to elect 14 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2015 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the state will gather to meet fellow activists and hear from elected officials. Registration will begin at 6:30 pm. The convention will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield.
"This convention will be unique as we build on experiences from many competitive elections these past few years and look to strengthen the party for the future," said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman, Senator Tom McGee. "Caucuses are an important step in growing our party engagement at the local level."
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Franklin, and the Democratic Committee welcomes participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. Youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be "add-on" delegates. The Alumni Restaurant building is handicapped accessible. Details on the rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
The Franklin Democratic Town Committee normally meets on the third Monday of the month at the Union Street Grill. For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact Denise Schultz at DeniseLynnSchultz@gmail.com / 508-612-5950 or check out their website at www.franklindemocrats.com.
