Democrats in Several Northern Strafford County Towns to Caucus in Remaining Weeks of March; Elect Delegates to State Convention

STRAFFORD, NH - Democrats will meet in several towns in Northern Strafford County to elect local Democratic officers and delegates to the New Hampshire Democratic Party state convention. Local Democratic Committees are crucial to the election of Democrats to State and Federal offices. In addition, local Democratic Committee officers and delegates have a vote at annual state Democratic Party conventions, including approval of the party platform. The following towns will hold organizational meetings of their local Democratic Committees: 



New Durham – Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at 7:00PM at the New Durham Public Library, 2 Old Bay Road. For further information contact John Babcock, 859-5345.


Strafford – Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at 7:00PM at the Hill Library on 1151 Parker Mountain Road. For further information contact Bob Perry, 269-4651.

“New Hampshire Democrats are excited about working with independent voters to elect responsible leaders for our State and local communities. Our town caucuses provide a great opportunity for anyone who wants to be involved in the grassroots style politics that makes New Hampshire special,” said former Democratic State Representative Dennis Vachon of Strafford.

There is no cost to attend the caucus, and it is open to all members of the public. Any registered Democrat, regardless of past political experience can run for an officer or delegate position in their respective community.

"From Concord to Washington, Republican Tea Party policies have failed to help working families and small businesses. The Republican state budget passed by House Speaker Bill O'Brien and Senators Jeb Bradley and Jim Forsythe has killed nearly 2,000 New Hampshire jobs," continued Vachon. "In 2012, we need to bring common sense back to Concord."


Middleton – Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 7:00PM at the Old Town Hall, 200 Kings Highway. For further information contact Susann Brown, 652-4306.

This organizational meeting is the first step for anyone who wants to be involved in the retail style of politics that makes New Hampshire special,” said Karolina Bodner, the Barrington Democratic chair.

There is no cost to attend the caucus, and it is open to all members of the public. Any registered Democrat from Barrington, regardless of past political experience can run for an officer or delegate position.

"The only way to restore a vibrant economy and security for working families is to stop the reckless onslaught against organized labor, the social safety net and reproductive rights of women” continued Bodner. "In 2012, we need to bring common sense back to Concord."
