NDCC General Meeting on Sept 10

We would like to invite you to join the Newton Democratic City Committee's third quarterly general meeting of 2015 on Thursday, September 10 from 7:30 to 9:00 pm at the Women's Workshop at 72 Columbus Street in Newton Highlands. All ward committee members are encouraged to attend, participate in the discussion and vote on proceedings.

This month we will hold a training on two important topics - how to run for Democratic Ward Committee (something all members who don't have 20-year status must do) and the September 19th Democratic Convention. We will also recognize one of our own with an award and discuss a constitutional amendment for better campaign finance law. (The "We the People Amendment").

The full meeting agenda is below. Your feedback and suggestions are welcome. We look forward to seeing you soon.
