    I would love to receive minutes of last night’s County Comm. Meeting, and have a way to read minutes from past meetings. I’m looking for a way to be involved with the Democratic Party. Are there committees one could consider joining without being an elected member of a Town Committee? If so, what are they?

    Is there an outreach committee that’s looking to connect with all the groups and individuals now doing progressive political work in the county to learn their wants and needs, and to put out calls for people willing to run for elected positions anywhere in the county as Democrats?

    Is there any organized effort since the Trump election to reach out to the groups and individuals working in this County for all kinds of progressive goals (Rural Awakening/Empowered Together/Blue Streak/the Respect for All folks? Is any effort being made to find people who want to run as Democrats for any of the elected offices coming up for votes next November in our Towns?

    Thank you for your interest. We are working on a way to add our meeting minutes to this website. But otherwise, currently all committee meetings begin with the reading of the minutes from the prior meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend. We advertise these meeting here on this page, on our Facebook page, an also share the meeting announcements with the two other groups you mentioned above (Rural Awakening and Blue Streak) on their Facebook pages. There are committee people working with the groups you have mentioned as well, discussing the upcoming elections is among the many things we are working on together.
    As for the effort of finding those that would like to run in the next election, there is a very specific process the Democratic committee must follow. As town caucuses are announced by the committee members in your town, they will be posted here on this site under the “Get Involved” tab. All registered democrats in that town have a voting right at this caucus to nominate those interested in running. This information can also be found on our Facebook page – Schoharie County Democrats.
