Feb 28th 3-5 PM CCDC General Meeting via zoom

The first Cumberland County Democratic Committee meeting of 2021 will be held on Sunday, February 28, from 3-5 p.m.

Featured speaker Dillon Murray, the new Constituency Engagement Manager of the Maine Democratic Party, will speak to us in honor of black history month. He will tell us what he sees as challenges facing Maine and Cumberland County, and what his hopes and plans are. We think this session with Cumberland County Dems will be the first time Dillon  will be facing the public in his new position. This is a great opportunity to hear an exciting new Maine Democratic Party staff member. Time permitting Dillon will take questions from the audience.

Committee business will be conducted immediately following the address. Business will include a vote for a CCDC representative to the Democratic State Committee, a seat left open by Seth’s recent move to chair of the CCDC. Because of State Party gender-balancing rules this position is open only to non-female-identifying persons.Persons interested can send a brief bio including any relevant qualifications to Seth before February 21st, for distribution to CCDC membership. Nominations will also be open on the floor.

There will also be discussion of an MDP post-November election de-briefing to be held on March 11.
  The meeting will be open to the public on some streaming service. CCDC members will be asked to join with a zoom link to ensure that only members get to vote. Links will be sent out soon – look for a new email.

Again, only CCDC members will be allowed to vote. If you are unsure if you are a voting CCDC member check with your town Dem Party Chair, or contact Seth Berner, CCDC Chair, at sberner@gwi.net

Please register by 2 PM on Sunday even if you don’t plan to joint the meeting until 3 PM. That will give us some time to address the ballots before they are needed. Each voter needs a separate email address. If a couple or group wishes to join the meeting together, each voter must register separately with the separate address since that is used to validate ballots.

This meeting will also be simulcast on YouTube for those not voting:
