Momentum for Mike

mikemichaudThanks to everyone who showed up Saturday to help canvass and phonebank and meet Mike Michaud! Mike impressed a lot of Portlanders with his genuine manner and hard-driving schedule. He’s in it to win!

Now it’s time to keep the momentum going. The Maine Democrats office in Portland is at 401 Cumberland Ave., and they need volunteers. Here’s the schedule:

Phonebanking:

5:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays

Door-to-door canvassing:

10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays

1-5 p.m. Sundays

If you have questions or want to sign up for a volunteer shift, contact Greg Pierce, 207-314-5571 or mdpportland@gmail.com. Hope we’ll see you there!

Meeting and Officer Election DATE CHANGED

As Portlanders, we join in mourning the loss of Amanda Rowe, nurse and advocate for children’s health, and extending our warmest sympathy to her husband, family and friends for this grievous loss.

In order not to conflict with services for Mrs. Rowe, we are moving our meeting up a week. The meeting and officer election will be Wednesday, July 31, at 5:30 p.m. in Conference Room 5 on the lower level of the Portland Public Library. 

Open positions are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. All nominees must be members of the PDCC — that is, they must have attended two regular meetings OR participated in the 2012 caucus. While we welcome all registered Democrats to participate and discuss, only official members can vote. (This is mandated by our bylaws, and we realize that it may be an issue f0r some people; it may well be that the new officers will recommend changes to those bylaws, but we need to elect them first.)

After new officers are elected, we’ll have a brief discussion of upcoming elections, campaigns and events. We hope you can attend!
