Platform Convention To Be Held In Fall
At the January 28th meeting of the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee voted to move the annual state convention to the Fall of 2021; specific date to be determined.
This being the year following a presidential election the MDP sets its platform for the next election cycle. Due to the pandemic restrictions the MDP was considering holding the 2021 convention remotely. The indications coming from National Institute of Health, re-openings are expected to be taking place later this year that would permit an in-person convention.
By moving the convention date to the Fall the MDP is keeping options open to hold either an in-person or remote convention.
Applications Accepted Through March 19th
The Massachusetts Democratic Party has announced it is accepting applicants for the JFK Scholarship and Joe Moakley Internship programs. These programs are the MDP’s efforts to develop new generation of leaders.
