Democrats in Boston Ward 19 will be holding a caucus at the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Hall, 2nd floor, to elect 24 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2014 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across Massachusetts will vote to endorse candidates for statewide office.
The convention will be held on Friday June 13 and Saturday, June 14, 2014 at the DCU Center in Worcester.
"This is going to be an exciting year as we build on our recent successes and prepare for the elections in 2014," commented Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman Senator Tom McGee. "Caucuses are the next step in growing our community organizing strategy for victory. People who were part of candidate campaigns in 2012 and 2013 have the opportunity to become part of their local Democratic Party organizations."
"We have a lot of great candidates running for statewide office," Senator McGee added. "Anyone who is interested in getting involved in a campaign for Governor, Lieutenant Governor or any other statewide office, can attend their local caucus and learn how to get involved.â€ť
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Ward 19, and the Democratic Committee welcomes new participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. Youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be "add-on" delegates. The Union Hall is a handicapped accessible building.
Detailed caucus rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
The Ward 19 Democratic Committee meets on the first Monday of the month at the Farnsworth House in Jamaica Plain, or the Roslindale Community Building.
