The Rockport Democratic Town Committee held a meeting on Saturday October 17, 2015 at 10:30 at the Rockport Police Station, 168 Main Street. We received excellent reports from our committee members who attended the State Convention in September. We heard from a supporter of the MA initiative for humane treatment of farm animals. We also heard from a supporter of the Fair Share Amendment. Both presentations were quite informative. Attendees had a chance to sign petitions for each.
