Democrat Donkey in Red and Blue

Message from the Chairman

Dear Voters,

I hope you'll make it down to our booth at the Village Fair Days this weekend (booth 13 toward the South end of the Green) because we have a lot of surprises in store. At the typical political fair booth you'll see a one or two people sitting in chairs behind a table or maybe handing out balloons.
Not at ours. We're holding drawings every hour on the hour, between 2 pm and 8 pm on both days with every prize bought from a downtown merchant. It's free, of course. Enter once and you're good for the entire day as well as for Saturday night's grand prize drawing of a $50 gift certificate from Taylor's Hardware.

Rep. Elizabeth Esty and Secretary of State Denise Merrill are also due at our booth in mid-afternoon on Saturday. We hope people will also say hello to our local candidates Gale Alexander for State Rep and Bill Riiska for State Senate and catch up on what the new NM Democratic Party is all about. And we'll be holding a voter-registration drive.

On Saturday afternoon, we'll holding a Scavenger Hunt from 2:30 to 3:30 with clues based on how well you know New Milford and a couple of gift certificate prizes.We are also raising money for the New Milford Community Fuel Bank. Fresh off our successful fundraiser at O'Connor's Pub where we raised almost $700, we are taking donations with $1 entitling you to a snack of your choice.

There's plenty to talk about. We'll be holding a fund-raising picnic at Harrybrooke Park on Sunday, Aug. 10 from noon-5 pm. Food and drinks are included in the cover charge – $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under and $25 max per family. Plus we'll have plenty of games to keep your kids entertained.

We have also completed a draft of our first party platform which we will discuss at our regular Aug. 18 meeting at the Railroad Station on Railroad Street.

Last week, we elected our two newest DTC members, Penny O'Gorman and Richard Portelance. The Committee also approved a new set of by-laws which had not been updated in over 20 years!

So come out and say hello at our booth this weekend!
