Team Democrat Headquarters Opens August 28th


Put August 28th on your calender for the Delaware County Team Democrat PAC Headquarters Grand Opening at 425 N. High Street, in downtown Muncie.  From 5 - 7 PM a group of Democrat candidates will welcome you to the 2014 incarnation of their joint campaign effort.
Volunteers await results in 2012 elections.

Having one location to hold meetings, organize volunteers, and monitor election results is not just efficient -- it's fun.

Delaware County candidates who are sponsoring Headquarters are:
Sue Errington,  State Rep for District 34
Larry Bledsoe, County  Commissioner
Mike Scroggins, Sheriff
Scott Hahn, County Coroner
Ralu Wolf, Judge
Tom Cannon, Judge

Since it's staffed by volunteers, the Headquarters is not open 24/7, but we'll be there a lot.  (425 N. High Street is in the small shopping center at the corner of North Franklin and Wheeling, just as Wheeling turns into N. High.)

Voting is Always the Option

"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost."  John Quincy Adams

May 6th is primary voting day in Delaware County.

Sometimes it's tempting to pass up a vote in a primary election -- especially if it's raining or we're running late.  However, your primary vote may be the one that makes the most difference come November. If you want your Democrat candidate to be on the November ballot, exercise your right to vote.

YOU CAN'T VOTE IF YOU DON'T REGISTER!

Today, April 7th, is the last day to register if you want to vote in the May election. You can register at the Delaware County Courthouse in downtown Muncie or online at www.indianavoters.com.

Exciting Plans for 2013 and 2014


It’s been a good start to 2013 for the Team Democrat Political Action Committee. Our January 19th annual meeting was well attended – you may have seen Larry Riley’s column, which described our actions related to values of transparency and inclusiveness. 

The January 19th meeting  featured election of new Board members and lively discussion of activities for the upcoming year.  New Board members are Judith Roepke, Victoria Rose, and Jason Waters.  They will replace Ann Reagan, Charlotte Shepperd, and Mike Sullivan, who plan to remain active. Anne will lead our fundraising effort.

What was great about the meeting and actions since, is our effort to bring together ideas, networking skills, and contact lists to start recruiting candidates for the 2014 Primary Election of members to the Democrat Precinct Committee. We hope to recruit candidates so that new members to the Democrat Precinct Committee better represent Team Democrat PAC values.

Now here’s the really exciting part – Mucie Councilwoman Linda Gregory has agreed to lead the recruiting effort.  In true Linda style, she wants to make the process as open and inclusive as possible.  The first step will take place the first Saturday in April.

Date:                     April 6
Time:                     9:00 a.m.
Where:                 Murpha Shrine Club
                             3222 East McGalliard
Why then:           The Shriner’s have a great all-you-can-eat breakfast at 8:30.

Filing for the precinct offices will begin in late January 2014…so it’s not too early to start this effort. If you cannot come on April 6, contact Linda Gregory if you have suggestions for candidates or want to work on the precinct recruitment committee.  Linda can be reached at lindagregory@comcast.net.
