We have received the following from the state committee. Until you hear otherwise, please assume that our March 21 caucus is affected by this announcement. We will post any updates here.
|I wanted to let you know, the following statement was just sent out by the Massachusetts Democratic Party:
“In light of guidance provided by state officials at this afternoon’s press conference, the Massachusetts Democratic Party is temporarily suspending all caucuses scheduled to take place. In the event that this temporary suspension must continue for an extended period of time, the Party will develop a replacement to the caucus process. We will continue to follow the guidance of state and local health officials and will make a decision to end the temporary suspension based on that guidance. The Party has informed Senator Markey and Congressman Kennedy of this decision, and each supported the necessary decision by the state party to postpone the caucuses.”
Beginning with tonight’s caucuses, we are temporarily suspending scheduled caucuses. This is an evolving situation, and we’ll be monitoring the recommendations of state officials. I will provide more information in Thursday’s email.
Chair, Massachusetts Democratic Party.
The following file: Ward 19 sample ballots contains images of the ballot you will see. There are 3 ballots, depending on your precinct. They differ only in candidates for State Committee.
The Ward 19 Democratic Committee recommends you vote for the entire slate of committee members. In addition, we strongly request that you write in the following two names and addresses in the write-in spaces, filling in the ovals to the right of their names:
- Cathleen Prata
24 St. Peter Street, Jamaica Plain
- Wayne Yeh
69 1/2 Boylston Street, Jamaica Plain
Please be careful to spell the names correctly. Cathleen has been a member of the committee for several years and is currently doing excellent work as our Clerk/Secretary. Wayne joins us as a member of the Young Chinese Democrats and will provide excellent access to that community. Their names do not appear on the ballot because of problems, since resolved, with their registration.
In order to vote in the March 3 election, you need to register to vote, change your address, or change your party affiliation by 8:00 pm Wednesday, February 12. See the Secretary of State’s web page for more information: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/eleidx.htm
