Platform, Caucuses, and Endorsement Rules - February News from Your 43rd!

It's Time to Prepare Our Platform!

Our next meeting is just around the corner - February 20 - and we have a packed agenda. First, fresh from a retreat on the 10th, your Executive Board will be reporting back briefly on ways we would like to help implement some of your amazing ideas from the breakout sessions at our last meeting. 

Following the report, our members (you) will be breaking into issue groups to focus in on topics of interest and provide some preliminary input for our district's platform. This will give us all a chance to collaborate on things we are passionate about and prepare us for our LD caucus when we will pass out district platform. Interested in joining the Platform Committee? Email Noah at elections@43rdDems.org today!

Consider bringing some non-perishable food items to the meeting for the Cherry Street food bank. Please avoid canned goods and other heavy items. Low sodium items are much appreciated.

Our full agenda, with identification of people up for consideration to be PCO, can be found here.
