Oxford County Democrats

BETHEL — The Oxford County Democrats will hold a training for caucus convenors as part of their regular meeting on Sunday, Jan. 12 at the Crescent Park School in Bethel beginning at 2 p.m.  Jon Hillier, Field Director for the Maine Democratic Party, will conduct the convenor training at 3 p.m. The Maine Democratic Party Caucus Day is Sunday, March 2 with meetings scheduled for individual towns at any time between 1 and 8 p.m. Many towns hold their meetings as part of regional events but also have the option of caucusing in their own town.  The business of the caucus is to elect delegates and alternates  to the 2014 State Convention on May 30-31 in Bangor as well as to organize the party structure throughout the county. Legislative and county candidates, as well as those representing the top of the ticket campaigns, will be attending many of the meetings to gather nominating signatures and recruit volunteers.

The meeting is open to Democrats as well as others interested in electing Democrats, and will include a time to socialize and enjoy potluck refreshments. For further information contact County Chair Cathy Newell at 875-2116.
