Tewksbury Democrats To Elect Delegates To State Convention
The Tewksbury Democratic Town Committee will hold its caucus on Saturday, June 26, at 10:00 a.m. at Tewksbury Town Hall, with a Zoom virtual option, to elect 13 delegates and four alternates to represent the town at the 2021 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the state will gather to meet fellow activists and hear from elected officials.
The convention will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.
“This year, I’m grateful for the opportunity to revisit our platform,” said Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford in a statement. “Under the Biden-Harris administration, Massachusetts has the opportunity to emerge as a shining example of what’s possible with Democrats in office. That’s why taking back the Governor’s Office in 2022 must be our top priority. To tackle the crises of our time — a global pandemic, growing economic inequality, a reckoning on racial justice, and an impending climate emergency — we need a leader willing to take bold action. While Governor Baker, Lieutenant Governor Polito, and their Republican colleagues try to hold Massachusetts back, Democrats have marched forward.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats residing in Tewksbury, and the Committee welcomes new participants. Those wishing to run are advised to arrive at Town Hall early to check in.
Delegates will be divided equally between men and women. Youth who will be 16 years of age by Sept. 25, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be “add-on” delegates. Town Hall is handicapped accessible. Details on caucus rules can be found at www.massdems.org.
The Committee will hold its second regular meeting of 2021 immediately after the caucus.
