March 5, 2016 Delegate Selection Convention

March 6th, 2016 by AMRccdp

CCDP had a good turnout for the county delegate selection convention on March 5. We elected 11 county delegates for Bernie Sanders and 6 for Hillary Clinton. These delegates now go on to the district convention on March 19 at Noon at the Putnam County Courthouse to elect the delegates to go to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Thank you to everyone who came out and took part. This is what democracy is meant to look like.
