According to Barbara Tidd, Secretary with the Saguache County Democratic Party Central Committee, the group will be re-organizing in 2019. While the national stage sets its sights on the 2020 Presidential election, local political affiliations are seeing some changes in leadership from precinct representatives to county officers. Now is the time to get involved, because local politics is still the driving force behind civic engagement and community representation.
So come and meet your friends and neighbors and find out what’s news at the Saguache Democrat’s Reorganizational Meeting to be held on Thursday, Feb. 7. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Saguache Road & Bridge meeting room, located at 305 3rd Street in Saguache.
According to Tidd, ALL of the offices for the Democratic Central Committee will be elected: County Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. If you are interested in serving in any of these positions, please attend the meeting and step up to express your interest!
“We value everyone’s input,” stated Tidd. “We want your engagement!’
Those eligible to vote at the meeting are members of the County Central Committee: officers, precinct committee persons and elected officials of the County Democratic Party. The “Call” for the Saguache County meeting was emailed per the Party Rules. The evening’s schedule is as follows:
