Signature Drive 2018

Volunteer To Signup For Signature Collection

“If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organizing. If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clip board, get some signatures, and run for office yourself” – President Barack Obama in his farewell speech

Some of us might not be the ones to run for office, and we might also like the work our elected officials are doing. But signature collection is a vital part of the democratic process to ensure ballot access for those who do seek to represent us. We can do our part by gathering signatures.

This is now the signature drive phase of the election cycle and collection tables with shifts have been arranged.  The tables have papers for many Democratic candidates seeking state-wide and also local elections.

In Memory of Stephanie Mercandetti

REMEMBERING STEPHANIE MERCANDETTI

 

It is with deep sorrow that I share with you that our beloved member, Stephanie Mercandetti, has passed away today (Jan 14, 2018), having courageously battled cancer for several months. She is remembered by all as a warm, joyful and compassionate woman whose giving and positive nature touched our lives and our community. Stephanie was soon to become a life member of the Framingham Democratic Town Committee, having served for almost twenty years, formerly as our Vice-Chair and as a Democratic State Committee member.  She will be sorely missed by all. Our Committee sends its most sincere condolences to her family, friends and to all who shared in her life.

Beverly Hugo, Chair
