Democratic Meetings
Stockbridge Democrats held their annual meetings on March 5, 2016 in the Town Offices.  Included were the State Caucus (to elect delegates to the June 4 State Convention in Lowell), Town Committee meeting (to review status and conduct business of the town committee) and Town Caucus (to endorse candidates for town offices as "Democratic Caucus Nominee").  The 29 people in attendance heard from State Rep Smitty Pignatelli as well as all three candidates running for Ben Downing's State Senate seat.  The meetings selected five members to attend the State Convention in Lowell and endorsed nine candidates as Democratic Caucus Nominees. 

SDTC Members' Form Slate
As part of the State's certification of local town political parties, every four years we are required to submit a slate form.  (Details in our Bulletin Board tab.)   All 33 Members did sign and the form was submitted on Friday Oct 23.  The Chairman would like to express his appreciation to everyone for their cooperation in getting the signatures.
