“Statewide, the party will be drawing thousands of activists to caucus and build our grassroots campaign for 2014. Maine Democrats are energized and ready to elect Democratic leaders who stand up for working class Mainers. We have one of the strongest tickets in our party’s history with Mike Michaud, Chellie Pingree and Shenna Bellows on the ballot. Mainers have had enough of the current leadership and are ready to turn the page,” said Ben Grant, Chairman of the Maine Democratic Party.

The 2014 State Convention will be held May 30 and 31 at the newly-opened Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. The event will feature activist trainings and workshops, passage of the 2014 Platform and floor speeches from Congressman Mike Michaud, Congresswoman Chellie Pingress, and candidates for the US Senate and 2nd Congressional District.

The caucuses are the front lines of grassroots politics. Attendees select delegates to the Democratic State Convention, elect Municipal Officers and County Committee members, and discuss national and local policy issues affecting all Maine people. Democratic candidates, elected officials and representatives from Democratic campaigns will attend. Attendees are asked to bring their viewpoints, ideas and questions for discussion.

People not currently registered in a political party, who would like to enroll as a Democrat may do so immediately at the town office or at the caucus. In case of snow, the alternate date will be Sunday, March 9 at the same time and place.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Roland P Collins at 207 834 5600.
