The Anderson County Democratic Party will have a Biennial Reorganization Convention to elect new leaders at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 25, a press release said. The meeting will take place in the Social Hall of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike. All county Democrats are welcome, the press release said.
Local Democrats will elect a new chairperson, first vice chair, second vice chair, secretary, treasurer, and the Executive Committee, which is comprised of 16 members. Executive Committee members will be elected from each district in Anderson County for 2017-2018, and they will serve two-year terms.
“All Democratic residents who are eligible voters of Anderson County are urged to attend to discuss the party’s agenda and events scheduled for 2017-2018,” the press release said. “During reorganization, attendees will evaluate the effectiveness of their county party’s bylaws and leadership. Each county party across Tennessee will determine its own needs, elect new leaders, and enact reforms to build a stronger grassroots organization.”
The Reorganization Convention is open to all Anderson County Democrats. Attendees should arrive early to complete credentialing forms in order to be admitted to the convention, the press release said. Part of the credentialing is the signing of a pledge that the signer is a legal resident and registered voter of Anderson County and that they pledge to support Democratic candidates for public office. Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. and close promptly at 11:30 a.m. to begin the formal meeting. If you are in line when the doors are closed, you will be allowed to complete registration and be admitted.
