Watertown Democrats to Elect Delegates to State Convention

Registered Democrats in Watertown will be holding a caucus in the Watertown Savings Bank Room of the Watertown Library on Sunday, February 9th at 2:30PM to elect 23 delegates and four alternates to the 2014 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. The Convention will be held on Friday June 13th and Saturday June 14th at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. At that time, Democrats from across the state will gather to endorse statewide candidates.

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Watertown and the Democratic Party warmly welcomes first-time 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.

“At our 2014 convention, the delegates selected by Watertown Democrats will take part in deciding which statewide candidates will be on the primary ballot this September.  The caucus is a great opportunity for people who want to get involved in the process,” said Watertown Democratic Town Committee Chair Steve Owens.

The committee normally meets on the last Thursday of each month in the Lower Hearing Room of the Watertown Town Hall.  The next meeting will be 7:30PM, January 30th and our guest will be Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan.  For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact committee chair Steve Owens at watertowndems@gmail.com or 617 216-5577 or check out the website at www.wdtc.us.
