Brunch 2022!

It’s time to come back together for the Gloucester Democratic City Committee Brunch!

The GDCC Brunch is back after a hiatus of three years due to Covid. We’re excited to bring back this event that gathers Democrats from Cape Ann and the whole North Shore to meet, mingle, and support our efforts in the coming midterm election cycle.

Our Annual Brunch fundraiser is a major lynchpin that allows us to organize to win by:

  • Renting office space for our headquarters
  • Order campaign swag and paraphernalia for distribution to supporters
  • Travel expenses for our members to “swing districts” in Mass and nearby states to help Democrats win in “purple” areas
  • $1000 in service-based scholarships to GHS seniors
  • Much much more!

Please note we will be checking Covid-19 vaccination cards at the door for the safety and comfort of our guests.

Long Beach Options Committee Final Report for Rockport Town Meeting

Moulton Campaign seeking Captains

Hello from Team Moulton!
It’s that time of the year: nomination signature collecting. 
We need 2,000 verified nomination signatures from registered voters in the district to get Congressman Moulton on the ballot for his re-election. And in order to do that, we’re recruiting Community Captains to get us there by collecting nomination signatures from their community (friends, neighbors, family, fellow Democrats).

Sign up to be a Team Moulton Community Captain here. 
After signing up, we’ll reach out to you to go over the details and answer all your questions. Just know that you’ll get the instructions and materials you need mailed to you, and no door-to-door or other public solicitation will be required.
This is one of the most important actions we need people to take this year, so please sign up if you can.

Thank you!
