Easthampton, MA – Registered Democrats in Easthampton will be holding their annual caucus on the top floor of the Easthampton Municipal Building at 50 Payson Avenue. The event will be held on March 5, 2016 at 10:00am and the Easthampton Democratic City Committee will help facilitate the election of 11 delegates and 3 alternate delegates to the 2016 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. This year’s slate of Democratic delegates from across Massachusetts will gather to adopt a new Action Agenda at this year statewide convention to 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 Chairman Tom McGee. “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 Easthampton and the Easthampton Democratic City 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 “addon” delegates.
