Hello Portland Democrats,
Before the holidays, we asked you to fill out a survey to help set the direction of the Portland Democrats in 2017. Many of you responded, and we want to share the results with you.
Join us next Thursday at 5:30 p.m. for our January general meeting. We’ll share and discuss the results. The new committee chairs and officers will introduce themselves. And there will be time for the issues you want to raise.
The meeting is on Thursday, Jan. 5, at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall (State of Maine Room).
Here’s the full agenda for the meeting:
Report on survey results
Executive Committee introductions
Bylaws survey and work plan report
Other business/from the floor
In terms of how we organize ourselves, starting in February, we’ll move the start time of our monthly meetings to 6:30 p.m. based on the responses we received—though, for sure, people’s schedules vary. We meet on the first Thursday of every month. We typically, but not always, meet at City Hall (and the details are always posted on our website (PortlandDems.org) and Facebook page (facebook.com/groups/
2017 is shaping up to be one of the most perilous political years of our lifetimes. I hope you’ll join us as we stand up to Trump—and also push to make a difference right here in Portland.
We hope to see you on Thursday, Jan. 5, at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall’s State of Maine Room for the Portland Dems general meeting.
Thanks for all you do for Portland. And Happy New Year!
