TOWNSEND — At the Democratic Town Caucus run by Democratic Town Committee Vice Chairman Gene Rauhala on Feb. 4 at Memorial Hall, three delegates and two alternate delegates were elected to attend the State Nominating Convention in Worcester. The convention is scheduled for the first weekend in June.
Elected delegates include Eileen Violette, Michael Violette and Lonna Thiem. Alternate delegates are Veronica Kell and Samuel Rauhala.
Committee chair Amy Collins was enthusiastic about Saturday’s turnout. Many people were instrumental in helping plan and set up for the event, she said, even non-members of the committee. She expressed appreciation for all the help given.
The convention will be held on Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3, at the DCU Center in Worcester. At that time, Democrats from across the state will gather to endorse candidates for the office of auditor, treasurer, attorney general, secretary of the commonwealth, lieutenant governor, governor and U.S. senator.
The names of those candidates who receive 15 percent of the state convention vote will be placed on the Sept. 19 Democratic Primary ballot.
