Caucus Announcement

 Dear Hudson Democrats and friends. The Hudson Democrats Committee meets the third Thursday of every month at the Rodgers Memorial Library,
If you are a disenfranchised democrat because you have disagreements with what we are doing to promote a progressive agenda or you disagree with anything else we do, this is your opportunity to speak up, to become one of our officers or to support a candidate who reflects your way of thinking. This opportunity to make a difference is not only available at the local level but the state level by electing delegates to the State Convention.

We must successfully caucus so we can elect officers who will work tirelessly and creatively to engage Democrats in Hudson who will make sure working families have a voice in Concord and Washington. Please keep in mind that every town committee officer is an automatic delegate to the NH State Convention, as are the delegates allotted to your town. The Democratic Midterm Convention featuring the Democratic Presidential Candidates will be Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Our currents officers are Alejandro Urrutia- Chairman, Grace Kennedy-Vice-Chairman, Carol Stamm-Secretary, Kate Kessner and Peter Sessions-Treasurers.”
Alejandro Urrutia

Chairman of Hudson Democrats

Note: Hudson NH Democrats are scheduled to cacus on the evening of Thursday March 21st, 2019 at 7pm at Rodgers Memorial Library (194 Derry Road: NH 102 Hudson NH ).
