Franklin Democrats to Elect Delegates To State Convention

Registered Democrats in Franklin will be holding a caucus in the Community Room at Franklin Public Library on March 26th at 10am to elect 13 delegates and 3 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.

"There is much at stake in 2016 as big, outside money targeting our Democratic legislators has already been pledged," said Chairperson Denise Schultz. "Our June convention will focus on building up our Democratic Party's grassroots around the values and ideas that improve the lives of working Bay Staters - ensuring we send strong Democrats to Beacon Hill, Capitol Hill and the White House."

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. 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 committee normally meets at 7:00 PM 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 / 508-612-5950 or check out their website at
