Training for Local Candidates and Committees

On May 9, 2017, in Uncategorized, by Paul P. Davis

 

The Maine Dems Lead Local Conference on June 10th, 2017! This conference will give local Democratic leaders the training, education, and network they need to be successful in 2017 and beyond.
Attendees will choose one of three tracks: elected municipal official – school board, elected municipal official – other (city/town government), municipal candidate, or Municipal/County Democratic Committee leader.
The Municipal Elected Official Tracks (school board & city/town government)
Elected municipal officials will learn how to effectively advocate for our Democratic values at the local level. While these candidates generally run without a party affiliation, those who choose this track will learn about progressive policy solutions to municipal-level issues.
The Municipal Candidate Track
Current and future candidates for local office will learn how to run effective grassroots campaigns and how to win. These are the Democratic leaders of the future. Building the bench now helps us run stronger candidates in 2017 and beyond!
The Municipal/County Committee Leadership Track
Municipal and County Democratic Committee leaders will learn key community organizing tactics, effective leadership skills, and receive training on how to employ each strategically.
If you’ve been thinking about getting involved, now is the time. Will you join us?

Take Action!

On December 6, 2016, in Uncategorized, by Paul P. Davis
The 2016 Elections were not as we hoped or expected. We all worry what direction this state and country is heading.  It is time for Democrats to stand up and help neighbors, friends, and family who are in most need during this holiday season.
Why: We are Democrats and that’s what we do. Democrats care.
How: Below are three programs that have worked hard every year to help those who need some help in Penobscot County.
There are many worthy causes not listed here, and I apologize for not being able to include them all.

christmas-is-for-kids
CIFK is proud to be in its 35th year of receiving contributions from generous people like you! Many of these children would have little or nothing to look forward to Christmas morning without your support.
