We are changing plans due to the virus:
Text training by Indivisible was March 28, and worked well by zoom. Sign up for a second session.
The DTC reconstitution meeting is still April 7 at 7pm. It will be with zoom, including dialin by phone for those without webcam capabilities. Cantact Nancy if you have not registered with zoom yet.
Calendar has been updated with changes.
The emotional choice isn't always the highest leverage way to use your money. Force Multiplier makes fact-based recommendations for donations to candidates and voter rights organizations. They help donors avoid hopeless causes and concentrate on those in a tough fight, but with a chance, who will help the goals of taking back the US Senate, and keeping the House. On their website you can find where national candidates might be speaking locally.
We continue to encourage donations to Organizing Corps 2020 which trains and funds highly skilled, highly local field organizers in key cities in 7 states that Hillary should not have lost: Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Arizona. Since last summer they have trained almost 400 corps members for the general election and are about to begin five boot camps in MI, PA, NC, FL, MN. They plan to start signing contracts with corps members in June. Quality training requires funds:
Canvassing by Texting - Free Training

Town Committee Caucus Results
Saturday morning, Feb 15, townspeople heard from surrogates for candidates Joe Kennedy and Ed Markey, and also from Tami Gouveia. The caucus then elected three delegates (Maureen Cosgrove-Deery, Nancy Kronenberg, and Bob Luoma) and alternates ( Kate Reid, Francis Tacardon, and David Erickson.)
Just in from State Committee.
May 30 - MA Democratic Convention cancelled due to health concerns. Both Senate candidates Markey and Kennedy will advance to the primary Sept 1. Neither will be endorsed by the state committee this year. Elected Delegates/Alternates who have already paid, will have the option of a refund or ticket to the Democratic Unity event after the primary.
Town committees are the grass roots of the party. Without us a lot would not happen.
We meet monthly, usually the 3rd Thursday of each month. Check the calendar. All are free to visit to our meetings.
We are dedicated to electing Democrats, influencing legislation, supporting state party platform issues, and educating about what needs to be done and how to do it.
We seek motivated new members! Check us out - visit a meeting:
