Ten Things to Know — MAR 14

Ten Things to Know …

There’s a lot to know about what’s happening here for DEMs here in Carroll County.

1. Seventy people gathered on Monday night March 11 for the monthly forum offered by the Greater Ossipee DEMs to listen to Mr. Andru Volinsky speak about Education Funding & Property Taxes. People came from 10 different towns! Next up: Sen. Dan Feltes will be at Hobbs on April 8th to talk about, “Paid Family Leave: Why Is It So Hard?”  Learn more at: Greater Ossipee DEMs on Facebook

2. The Valley DEMs switched their meeting time from tonight to March 20th at 6 pm. There is an email list that exists for people who want to know what’s going on with the Valley DEMs (made up of DEMs from towns around Conway). If you live in or around Conway, this regional group is good for connecting and learning and advocating. Learn more at: Valley DEMs on Facebook

3. Of the 19 towns in Carroll County, ten of them have already had their DEM town caucuses. The other nine will be completed by the end of March. Once we hit April, this website will update all of the contact info for the Town Chairs. This will be the first time all of Carroll County’s towns will have completed official DEM caucuses. Great job, Carroll County! It’s a good time to be a Carroll County DEM.

4. The Tri Town DEMs (Sandwich, Tuftonboro, and Moultonborough) will be hosting Tyler Sweeney from the Concord Coalition on March 26th. The Trip Town DEMs meeting every other month at the Moultonborough Library and all DEMs are welcome at their meetings. At this MAR meeting, each of the three towns will have their DEM town caucus.
