Charlestown Democrats to Elect State Convention Delegates on Tuesday

Registered Democrats in Charlestown will be holding a caucus at Charlestown Lacrosse Center, 14 Green Street on March 15th at 7pm to elect 13 delegates 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 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 Charlestown 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 Ward Committee meet immediately after the caucus. For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact Chris Remmes at 617-398-0018 or [email protected]
