2016 Caucus Planning

Please save the date for the Portland Democratic Caucus on Sunday, March 6th, 2016. In collaboration with the Maine Democratic Party, local elected officials, and representatives from Democratic presidential campaigns, the Portland Democratic City Committee is committed to making sure our caucus is inclusive and well organized.
If you’d like to be part of helping to make this year’s caucus a success, please join us for an informational planning meeting:
Thursday, January 7th, 2016
5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 
at the Portland Public Library 
The meeting will be an opportunity to hear updates about the planning process, and make a plan for volunteer recruitment. Because this is a Presidential election year, we know that we will need all hands on deck. Please join us!

No meeting 2/18

Snow! That’s a nice change, isn’t it?

But with a parking ban in place for tonight, it doesn’t make sense for us to try to hold a Portland Dems meeting. Stay warm and safe.

Also plan on being at the East End School at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 2 for caucus! We’ll be electing delegates to the state convention, which is May 30-31 in Bangor, and we’ll also get to hear from awesome Maine Democrats including Chellie Pingree, Mike Michaud, and Shenna Bellows!

We definitely will need help setting up before the caucus begins — if you can be there at 12:30, please come early and lend a hand.

Please join us tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 18) for our monthly meeting 5:30 at the Maine Dems Office in Portland, located at 401 Cumberland Avenue.
