Registered Democrats in South Hadley will hold a caucus at South Hadley Town Hall on Saturday, March 2, 2013, to elect ten delegates (five male; five female) and three alternates to the 2013 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Registration begins at 1:30 and closes at 2:00 p.m. at which time the caucus will begin.
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in South Hadley, and the South Hadley Democratic Town Committee warmly welcomes participants. Candidates for delegate and alternate must consent to nomination in writing and must be present at the caucus. 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 Convention will be held on Saturday, July 13 in Lowell, Massachusetts. “At our 2013 convention, the delegates selected by South Hadley Democrats will debate and adopt our platform for the next four years, catch up and network with other organizers around the Commonwealth and hear from some exciting future leaders of our party,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair John Walsh.
South Hadley Democratic Town Committee normally meets on a monthly basis, and meeting dates, time and location are posted at the Town website.
