meeting notes

20 attendees, items discussed:

  • Our upcoming April meeting at JEMS with guest speaker Congressional candidate Jill Lochner (R)
  • The State Dems are currently meeting in Kingston to discuss leadership and strategy
  • The ECDC upgraded website is under construction (by Marisol!)
  • Mary McGowan, Essex County Election Commissioner, discussed the upcoming June 17-25 early voting for the primary election. It will be at one site, the Lake Placid Beach House.
  • New voting machines have been ordered and will be operational for the general election in the fall. They will be easier for the inspectors to operate and not much different for the voters to use.
  • There are 100 open offices available across Essex County and 12 declared Democrats.
  • Pints and Politics is looking at a couple of locations in Ticonderoga and there will be a morning coffee gathering at Origins in Lake Placid in May.
  • The Democratic Rural Caucus met recently and discussed issues such as state technical, legal and financial support.

Next meeting is April 25. Contact me ( if you are interested in being a county delegate.
