Programmatic Goals:

(1) develop a democratically-created local platform informed by the state platform that defines what we stand for and what we’re working to achieve;

(3) help ensure strong turnout across the city in the 2017 election.


Organizational Goals:

(1) increase member engagement, including by developing an onboarding process, with (a) more people actively involved in subcommittees (b) more people taking on leadership roles, and (c) 15% growth in our email list;

(2) build and sustain active, self-driven, effective subcommittees;

(3) improve transparency and democratic governance; and

(4) increase engagement and communication with the Cumberland County Democratic Committee, Maine Democratic Party, and local resistance and social change organizations.

December Meeting: Officer Elections

The next monthly meeting of the Portland Democratic City Committee will be on Thursday, December 1, at 5:30pm, in the State of Maine Room at Portland’s City Hall. This will be our Officer Elections meeting.

To run and to vote in the election, you must be a registered Democrat and have attended either the primary caucus in March or a Portland Democrats’ meeting since.

Nominations will be taken from the floor. Any nominated, eligible candidates will be given a chance to speak to the assembled body. Officers serve two-year terms.

To run for officer, email by midnight Wednesday, Nov. 30, so we can prepare the ballot for Thursday’s vote.
