Danielle Gregoire’s campaign is endorsed by the Metrowest Newspaper.
She requests help in door to door canvasing and mailings.
Danielle offered Hillary lawn signs for people at $5 ea.
Hillary Campaign house party gathering in Avalon community in Marlborough turned out to be a debacle. The main person heading the campaign for Hillary in this area never appeared with all the literature and event schedules. People were very disappointed. No follow-up or rescheduling
We will be receiving literature for Jamie Eldridge, Hillary and Danielle Gregoire for canvassing.
A bag of pens with the old website, “Marlboroughdems.org” printed on the side has been found and given to Dave Doucette to check out the old website and status of ownership. It would be nice to be able to give these out on Heritage Days.
Three Governor Council candidates were invited to come in to speak to us about their candidacy: Bill Humphrey, Peter Georgiou and Marilyn Devaney. Bill Humphrey was the only one to attend. He is a new candidate. Educated us on the responsibilities of the Governor Councilors. How they advise the Governor on the judges he appoints. There are 5 out of 7 new judges to pick next year by the Governor. This is a very important role. He was very informative.
