Andru Volinsky And Democratic Town Caucuses

 

Local Democrats and Independents are invited to the meeting of the Tri-Town Democrats of Barnstead, Gilmanton, and Alton on Monday, February 4th at 6:30.  Registered Democrats from all three towns are eligible to vote in the caucus elections for town Democratic committee officers and delegates to the Democratic State Convention and to the county Democratic committee. 

 

The meeting will also feature guest speaker Andru Volinsky, Executive Councilor of NH, who will discuss real estate taxes and school funding.  He has represented several communities in their fight to protect public funding for schools and has been holding forums around the state informing the public about these issues. 

 

The Alton, Gilmanton, and Barnstead Democratic Committees will be holding their caucuses to each elect five volunteer officers: chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer and one delegate-at-large for each of the three towns’ committees. These five positions also have a vote at annual state Democratic Party conventions to approve the party platform. This is a great way to take an active role in the committee work and strengthen our group’s efforts in the coming two years leading up to the 2020 presidential election. 

 

These monthly meetings give you the opportunity to learn about local and state political issues and how you can participate in making a difference.  You will share the evening with like-minded individuals and have the chance to express your opinions and experiences.

 

The guest speaker will be followed by action items and community organizing.  This meeting of the Tri-Town Democrats will be held at the Barnstead Town Hall at 108 South Barnstead Road in Barnstead.  Come for socializing and potluck any time between 6:15 pm and 6:30 pm.

 

This meeting is open to all residents of Barnstead, Alton, and Gilmanton who consider themselves moderate, liberal, or progressive Democrats or like-minded Independents.  Potluck items to share are encouraged but not required.
