PENNSYLVANIA DEMOCRATIC STATE COMMITTEE PASSES PACKAGE OF RESOLUTIONS, CREATES NEW CONSTITUENCY CAUCUS
 
PENNSYLVANIA -- Pennsylvania Democrats gathered this weekend in Harrisburg for the annual Fall Meeting of the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee. On Friday the committee held its Keystone Dinner, and the full-capacity crowd heard from a dynamic lineup of speakers, including Senator Bob Casey, Congressman Matthew Cartwright, Justice Debra Todd, Judge Dwayne Woodruff, and keynote speaker Jason Kander.
 
The Committee established theNew Americans Constituency Caucus. Especially in light of the Trump Administration’s treatment of immigrants, this caucus was created to stand in solidarity with first and second-generation Americans and welcome new citizens to the Democratic Party.
 
After hearing from the candidates from the 2017 judicial “Slate of Eight,” the State Committee passed a package of five resolutions on Saturday. These resolutions are an expression of the Democratic values of the state committee and include support for single payer health care, the legalization of marijuana, opposition to the FCC’s actions to abolish net neutrality, legislation to establish fair legislative districts, and committing to supporting women candidates who promote Democratic Party values.
 
“We had a phenomenal weekend full of enthusiasm for our candidates and for our Party,” saidMarcel L. Groen, Chairman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “We are energized and prepared to work hard for our Slate of Eight, and we look forward to bringing them to victory in November.”

Do you want to be a committee person but you will be away during the petition signing time next year?  You can still do it, by taking these four easy steps:

1. Get another registered Democrat in your area to get you the required amount of signatures (and a few extra!) on your petition for committee person.

2. Have them sign and get it notarized before they mail it to you.

3. Then you sign it and get it notarized where you're staying or visiting. 

4. Mail it back to them to hand it in, or mail it to the voter registration office in Lebanon before the deadline.
