All delegates elected to Democratic Convention also pledge to support Warren
Earlier this month, the Eastham Democratic Town Committee unanimously endorsed Elizabeth Warren to be the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate race.
"No other candidate for U.S. Senate has the ideas, commitment, organization and support as does Elizabeth Warren," said Dave Schropfer, Democratic Town Committee Chair. "She is the best candidate -- a clear leader who has energized Democrats -- and I am pleased our committee took the opportunity to support her with our endorsement," added Steve Cole, her caucus coordinator for Eastham and the Committee’s vice chair.
The earlier caucus elected Gwen Pelletier, Adele Blong, Cole and Oliver Everett, as delegates to represent Eastham Democrats at the annual convention. In addition, Dave Schropfer, Committee chair, will serve as ex officio delegate. Alternates selected were Sandy Bayne, Joe Bayne and Tina Meservey. All are committed to supporting Warren at the convention.
Delegates to the 2012 Massachusetts Democratic Party endorsing convention will select candidates to compete for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield. Candidates at the convention who garner at least 15% of the votes of the delegates are entitled to run in the state primary, scheduled for September 6.
"I'm honored to have been elected as a Warren delegate," said Blong. "We are going to work hard to make sure all voters in Eastham understand how Elizabeth Warren will push for a fairer and stronger economy," she added.
In addition to delegates who are elected at caucus, those who meet the qualifications, may apply to be add-on delegates in the following categories: youth, minority, and disabled. Applications are available by contacting the Democratic Party at 617-939-0800. Completed applications must be returned to the Democratic State Committee by March 30, 2012.
