2016 HCDC Convention and Membership Drive

Dear Fellow Democrat, 

As we head into a Presidential election year, I’m writing to encourage you to join the Hunterdon Democratic Party with a membership pledge.  Membership is $25 and we are offering a special rate of $40 per couple.   Your membership will help us support local Democratic candidates and staff a headquarters office for this upcoming Presidential election cycle. 

I’d also like to invite you to join local Democrats at this year’s Hunterdon County Democratic Party Convention taking place on Saturday March 12, 9 a.m. at the Moose Lodge, 81 Barley Sheaf Rd, Flemington, NJ 08822.  We will be endorsing candidates for this year’s County races as well as Congressional and Presidential candidates.  Voting is limited to County Committee members but all are welcome to join us in celebrating our Democratic candidates.

Finally, I hope you will consider becoming a local Democratic activist by petitioning to become a member of the Hunterdon County Democratic Party County Committee.  County Committee members are the elected individuals who represent Democratic voters in the voting district where they live.  They are the backbone of the local party and are key to the Democratic Party’s success in running campaigns and getting Democrats elected.  If you are interested in learning more please reach out to me at arleneqperez@hotmail.com, or join us at the Convention.

We are ready to build a strong Hunterdon County Democratic Party for this important 2016 election year.  Please join us!


Arlene Quinones Perez

Hunterdon County Democratic Party, Chairwoman
