Here is a link to the minutes from the April membership meeting. https://mcusercontent.com/…/CCDC_April_2021_Memberhip…There will be elections at the meeting for two delegates to the Democratic State Committee. The two positions are the same, the only difference is that the first one is for a non-female-identifying person, the second is for anyone.
John Holland has expressed an interest in one of the positions. Here is the brief biography he wrote for himself.John Holland, Harpswell, MEI want to represent Cumberland County on the Democratic State Committee to ensure the views and needs are met at the State level. I’m a strong advocate for democratic values and am a big believer in making a difference. My experience in working to encourage the expansion of STEM programs to promote math and science to girls as well as boys starting in elementary school and continuing to college has allowed me to understand how to get things done. In addition, I”m currently Secretary for the Harpswell Democratic Party, and know that the party needs to continue to build a strong democratic team that can work at the local and State level. It’s imperative that we continue the grassroots effort to encourage everyone in Maine to get involved in some way whether working on a particular issue, serving on a local office, volunteering, or working on a State Campaign.
Nominations for both positions will be taken at the meeting. Please don’t be shy about nominating yourself – don’t think if it as being selfish, think of it as serving your County, your Party, and therefore the world.
Only persons already voting members of the CCDC will be allowed to vote. If you are unsure if you are a voting member please check with your town Chair or with me.
Please send me your suggestions, corrections or problems. See you June 27 at 3:00.
Yours for a Bluer Cumberland County, Seth BernerCCDC Chair
