Deadline for becoming a delegate to the forthcoming Montgomery County Democratic Party (MCDP) Reorganization Meeting is February 5. Every precinct can elect one delegate to this meeting in order to vote on new leadership and to vote on a new constitution. The last meeting was in 2010, and, as usual, the insiders stayed in power, and the old boss centered constitution stayed the same
The insiders always stay in power because news of this important meeting is always kept a big secret from any county Democrat who is not a party insider. This deliberate disenfranchisement of county Democrats of their right to meaningfully participate in their party is reason enough to conclude that MCDP needs major change. There are plenty of other reasons.
If you are a Democrat living in Montgomery County who wants to be a delegate to this important Reorganization Meeting, send an e-mail to me at email@example.com with your name and address and I will send you the needed information.
Notice of petition filing deadline and BOE contact information for those interested in being elected and serving as a Democratic precinct captain was provided in January Montgomery County Democratic Party newsletter.over 1200 newsletters went out via e_mail and another 2200 went out via snail-mail. Newsletter recipients must belong to County Democratic Party.
Fred, thanks for the information. I’m surprised that there are 3400 county residents that are members of the MCDP and that these have all received at least one reminder of the Reorganization Meeting. This information, however, does not contradict my claim that, “this important meeting is always kept a big secret from any county Democrat who is not a party insider.” There has been no effort to inform rank and file county Democrats about this important meeting. There has been no mention of the Reorganization Meeting on the MCDP web-site, nor has there been a press release about the meeting printed in any newspaper, and nothing about the meeting has been noted on any local Television station.
