The following information was provided by the Watertown Democratic Town Committee:

Registered Democrats in Watertown will be holding a caucus on Saturday, March 7 in the Hosmer Elementary School Auditorium at 1 p.m. to elect 25 delegates and five alternates to the 2020 Massachusetts Democratic Nominating Convention. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

This year’s state convention will be held Saturday, May 30 at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell, where thousands of Democrats from across the state will come together to vote on candidates for the US Senate ahead of the September primary.

“This year’s convention will be a great opportunity to strengthen the party for the 2020 elections. The Watertown caucus is a chance for people who want to get involved in the process to connect with other local activists,” said Watertown Democratic Town Committee Chair Steve Owens.

The caucus is open to all registered and pre-registered Democrats in Watertown. Pre-registered Democrats who will be 16 by February 15, 2020 will be allowed to participate and run as a delegate or alternate. Voter registration will be available at the caucus.  Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret.

In the spirit of inclusion, youth, minorities, and people with disabilities and LGBTQ individuals who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be add-on delegates, either at the caucus or online at www.massdems.org.

The Watertown Democratic Town Committee normally meets on the last Thursday of each month. Our next meeting will be on February 27, at 7 p.m. in the Lucia Mastrangelo meeting room of the Watertown Free Public Library.  Our guest speaker will be State Senator Will Brownsberger who will be discussing upcoming Transportation legislation.  For more information on the caucus or the committee please contact Steve Owens at watertowndems@gmail.com / 617-216-5577 or check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/watertowndems/.

  1. Senator Warren returned TWELVE BILLION dollars to consumers through an agency she created and for which she fought tirelessly BEFORE she was even in office. Millions of ordinary Americans have been spared exploitation by some of the most powerful companies in the world because CFPB had their back. More money in their pockets, but just as important, more control and agency over their lives and more power in their hands.

  2. Elizabeth Warren is bored with the mundane work of being a working senator. She has the same disease that Bill Weld had in his second term as governor of the commonwealth. I would not be surprised if she does not run again especially since her presidential aspirations are about to go up in a puff of smoke.
