The Democratic State Committee met tonight, and the biggest news is probably that the state convention has been set for Saturday September 14th at Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, with a caucus window of May 11th-June 16th. Anyone who is 16 by May 11th and pre-registered may participate. There was a bit of a discussion about inviting the Mayor to welcome us since he is so anti-immigrant and even a motion made (which the Chair tried to discourage and I was one of only a handful to vote against) to not invite him.
There are also four vacancies currently on the DSC for anyone who qualifies and is interested: female college; female Middlesex & Worcester; male Norfolk, Bristol, & Plymouth; and male Worcester & Middlesex. The college seat will be elected by the DSC at our April meeting and the district seats will be elected by district conferences if the election is contested. There is only about a year left to these vacancies since the DSC is re-elected in the spring of 2020.
