In response to increased inquiries by folks looking to get involved with the local party, the Steuben County Democratic Central Committee will add a new element to their annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast this year: Everyone is invited to attend for free.
The Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast for election year 2016 is at 9am on January 14, at 6 Autumns Food and Spirits, located by the Ramada Inn 3855 N State Road 127.
Since 2009, the Democrats traditionally host a hot breakfast open to anyone who showed support in that year election year. Financial donors, HQ staffers, poll workers, campaign volunteers and precinct officials are all invited to the free event as a show of appreciation for their contributions. This year, the invitation list is expanded to also include those who are interested in becoming active in 2017. A freewill donation to help defray food costs is suggested for new volunteers, but not required.
The event will include remarks by Democratic County Chairperson Judy Rowe, who will summarize the party's current standing and offer information about the upcoming county Reorganization, a procedure that occurs every 4 years in both political parties.
"Since this is a re-organizational year without an election, my beginning focus will be on party building," states Rowe, who will not seek a third term. "The agenda for the remainder of 2017 and beyond will be set by my successor."
Reorganizations at the County level for the Democratic Party will occur statewide on March 4.
