Come learn about the candidates and issues we’ll be voting on in November, including the constitutional convention! Don’t sit this one out! Please rsvp to judy.itfio at gmail dot com.
Calling Rhinebeck residents! Don’t let the Republicans hijack our caucus again!
A Democratic caucus to fill the seats on the Town Board will be held in Rhinebeck at the Town Hall on Saturday September 9th, 10:00 am.
Elizabeth Spinzia is running as the incumbent for Town Supervisor and there are two Town Board seats with three qualified Democrat candidates competing for the spots:
Brennan Kearney is running for the first time with new ideas and fresh perspective
Chauncey Walker stepped in to fill a vacancy and is running for a full term this time around.
Joe Gelb has served for 8 years and would like to continue his tenure.
Rhinebeck is counting on us to keep the Republicans from hijacking our caucus. You must live in Rhinebeck, be a registered Democrat and show up!
There will be caucuses throughout the District. For more information contact us at email@example.com
[CORRECTION NOTE: In the email sent out 9/4/17, we incorrectly stated that Joe Gelb has served for 12 years on the board. Mr. Gelb has served for 8 years. We regret the error.]

The most important thing that we can do right now to protect our community, our environment and our values is to work now for Democratic electoral success in local, state and federal offices in 2017 and in 2018.
As many of us experienced during the November election, phone banking is much less effective than in past years. Door to door canvassing starting NOW is critical for both the 2017 and the 2018 elections. Neighbor to neighbor contact is something that money can’t buy. Many voters skip non-Presidential year elections — every voter that we speak with is many, many more times like to turn out to vote blue in November 2017 and November 2018.

According to our friends at NY19votes, our district has over 100,000 voters Continue reading
