Democratic State Committee Vacancy - Female Ballot Seat - Sheila Murray Elected:
The Massachusetts Democratic State Committee announced a State Committee vacancy in our district, which was voted on at a District Conference held March 28, 2015 in Pittsfield.  The SDTC sent three Delegates: Heidi Teutsch, Richard Seltzer and Don Chabon. The two candidates, Elizabeth Bell-Perkins and Sheila Murray, made presentations and ballots were counted.  Some discussion of issues and procedures followed.  Was a nice chance for regional Democrats to gather.

Political Survey:
At the meeting of May 14 participants were asked to complete a small survey to help our town try and better understand our local political process.  23 survey forms were returned and data will be collated shortly.  Results will be reported on this web page  Thank you to everyone who participated.
