With the New Hampshire primary today, the Republicans have center stage, but Southborough Democrats are also starting the wheels of their political machine rolling. Next month they’ll elect delegates to attend the state convention in June. Here are the details.
Democrats in Southborough will be holding a caucus at the Southborough Public Library on Saturday, February 11 at 2:00 pm to elect five delegates and three alternates to the 2012 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across Massachusetts will select candidates to compete for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate. The convention will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield.
“This is going to be an exciting year as we build on our recent successes and prepare for the elections in 2012,” commented Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh. “Caucuses are the first step in building a community organizing strategy for victory. They give people an opportunity to become part of the local effort.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Southborough, and the Democratic Committee warmly 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. Details on the rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
The committee normally meets on the second Monday of the month at the Southborough House of Pizza. For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact Susan Ruane at email@example.com / 508-460-0830 or check out their page on Facebook.
