Dear Fellow Eaton County Democrat:
As February approaches, I would like to encourage all our current precinct delegates to reapply for the next election cycle. Forms and instructions can be found on the web site. I would also like to encourage others that may be interested to also apply and a listing of where we need precinct delegates can also be found on the web site.
The Michigan Democratic Party is also engaged in trying to recruit as many Democrats as possible to serve as Poll Workers for the upcoming election cycle. Of course, the goal of the party is to make sure we are represented at every voting poll as possible. Please consider this important role and let me know. County chairs can submit names of potential poll workers to the clerks within their county. The deadline for the County Chair is May 15, however they would like for the Chair to send potential poll workers by February for the primary election. You can also apply yourself at your local clerk’s office.
I would like to thank all our members who attended the Martin Luther King celebration on January 20. Eaton County Democrats were well represented at the event. Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich and Treasurer Bob Robinson as well as Representative Angela Witwer were all in attendance. The speakers and entertainment were great and enjoyed by all.
Our next meeting is scheduled for February 20. We will hold our County Nomination Convention also that evening at 6:00 p.m. and it is very important that we have as many party members as we can attend. If you would like to serve on any of our 3 committees, Credentials, Rules, or Resolutions please let me know ASAP. Just send me an email and let me know which committee you would like to serve on. Our business meeting will be held immediately after the convention meeting.
Please encourage any Democrat you know to join the party. They can join by going to the Michigan Democratic Party website at www.michigandems.com.
Joseph D. Chin, Jr., Chair
