Special Meeting to Fill Delegate Vacancies
Vacant slots for delegates to the Maine Democratic Party state convention in Lewiston May 18-20 will be filled at a special HCDC meeting on Saturday, April 21 at 930 am in the theatre room of the Moore Center in Ellsworth.
The Credentials Committee is now upgrading alternates elected at the March 4 caucuses to full delegate status. Alternates will be contacted directly by the Maine Democratic Party.
However, due to some slots not filled at the March 4 caucuses and some resignations due to personal conflicts, Hancock County will still have a few additional delegate positions to fill. In accordance with MDP rules, HCDC has set the meeting cited above for this purpose.
Those wishing to become a delegate or wishing to vote in this election should attend.
Please remember that attendance at the convention in Lewiston is at each delegate’s personal expense.
We need your help to put the LePage legacy behind us and advance a progressive national agenda to counter Trump.
2018 will have critical elections for Governor, US Senator, US Representative, and State Senators and Representatives. HCDC’s priorities for 2018 include electing a Democratic Governor, electing a Democrat for Maine’s Second Congressional District, winning back a Democratic majority in the Maine Senate and holding a Democratic majority in the Maine House.
We need financial support to pay for our office, phones, computers, supplies, campaign materials, and other expenses. Please help us fund effective campaigns in 2018 by making a donation to HCDC. The donation tab is easy to use.
We will also need a lot of help during 2018 in making thousands of phone calls, knocking on doors, doing office and computer work, writing letters to the editor, driving candidates, and helping with many other important tasks.
