Meet your elected officials

TONIGHT at 7PM at the Multnomah County Democrats monthly meeting [Hollywood Senior Center 1820 NE 40th Ave]

District Director Willie Smith from Congressman Earl Blumenauer's office will attend to give us an update on the upcoming Congressional session, and an insider's perspective on the horrific events of last Saturday.

State Treasurer Ted Wheeler will be on hand to give an overview of the budget, and we'll have a Legislator or two on hand to give us an update from their perspectives.

The agenda includes the Celsi Celebration and an overview of next week's officer and delegate elections, affectionately known as the Party "Organization Meeting."

Did you know there are almost 40 delegate slots available for the Democratic State Central Committee and the three Congressional District Committees?

To nominate yourself for an officer or delegate position, you can complete the handy online form, announce your candidacy at the January 13th meeting, or email PLEASE NOTE: nominations MUST be submitted before 11:59 pm, 1/13/11, in order to appear on the printed ballots. (Nominations may be made as late as election night, but candidates nominated after the 13th will be "write-in" candidates.)
