On May 3rd, from 3 to 5 PM, we held a virtual meeting that centered around the draft Platform. Ben Grant, Chair of the 2020 Maine Democratic Party Platform committee, assisted us and accepted comments and discussion.
We also held a brief business meeting. One of the necessary actions was to elect at-large members of the CCDC (who can participate and vote in future meetings).
The zoom meeting was streamed live to YouTube and recorded so everyone can see the presentation and discussion.
The Cumberland County Democratic Committee would like to congratulate the new and returning delegates to the state committee. We would also like to thank all the wonderful volunteers who helped with the Cumberland County Caucus at the Maine Democratic State Convention.
