At their November 19 meeting, Boxford’s Democratic Town Committee set the date for its annual caucus on Saturday, February 22, 2014. It will be held at the Boxford Community Center (Council on Aging), in the second floor meeting room. The caucus will officially be called to order at 2 pm, with a sign-in coffee and social time starting at 1:30 pm. Any Democrat registered to vote in Boxford before January 31, 2014, is eligible to participate in the caucus.
This caucus will elect six delegates to represent Boxford Democrats and attend the important statewide Ratifying Convention June 13-14 in Worcester. At the convention, Democrats running for any of the state’s constitutional offices who wish to be on the Democratic primary ballot in September must achieve the support of at least 15% of the convention’s delegates. As of this date, five candidates for Governor, three for Lieutenant Governor and two for Attorney-General will be vying for delegate support.
