Democrats to hold caucus in Wareham

Mar 06, 2017

Democrats in Wareham will hold their annual caucus at the Wareham Free Library, 59 Marion Road, on April 1 at 10 a.m. to elect 10 delegates and four alternates to the 2017 Massachusetts Democratic Convention. Delegates will be equally divided between men and women in accordance with Democratic Party rules. Anyone at least 18 years old, and registered as a Wareham Democrat as of Jan. 31, 2017, is welcome to attend the caucus and run for a delegate position.

The convention will be held on Saturday, June 3 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.

Candidates for delegate and alternate must be present at the caucus and consent to nomination in writing. Candidates may make a two-minute statement and may distribute materials on their behalf. All ballots will be written, secret and recorded by the caucus teller. Anyone not elected as delegate or alternate delegate at the caucus may apply to be an “add-on” delegate in the following categories: youth (age 35 and under), minority or disabled.

Discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age, color, creed, national origin, religion, ethnic identity, sexual orientation or economic status in the conduct of the caucus is strictly prohibited. Any challenges to the delegate-selection process must be filed with the Massachusetts Democratic Party, 77 Summer St., Boston, MA 02110 within 10 days after the caucus.

The Wareham Democratic Town Committee meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Wareham Town Hall (second floor).

What are they holding?  In one paragraph all forms of discrimination are strictly prohibited yet in the prior paragraph you can become an add on delegate only if you discriminate by race, age or health. Seems to be discriminatory to me. Perhaps that why they like holding these meetings and holding caucus.

How is it that the town of Wareham opens its hall and lends a 2nd floor room to the Democratic Town Committee? Does the town offer this facility to the Republican Town Committee as well? Is this not discriminatory?
