Hudson – On Feb. 11, Democrats in Hudson held a caucus to elect delegates to the Massachusetts Democratic Party's 2012 convention. Delegates to the 2012 Massachusetts Democratic Party endorsing convention will select candidates to compete for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate. The convention will be held Saturday, June 2, at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield.

The caucus, organized by the Hudson Democratic Town Committee, elected Jane Chertoff, Shari Mathieu, Ann Petter, Catherine Kroeger, Ann Krome, George McGee, David Cashel, Graeme Mathieu, Lynn Valcourt, and David Sweeney as delegates, with alternates Alex Williamson and Rob Clark.

“In 2012, the Massachusetts Democratic Party is focused on expanding and strengthening our grassroots infrastructure that helped us make historic gains in 2010,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair John Walsh. “In Hudson and across the Commonwealth, Democrats are energized and organized to beat Scott Brown and make sure President Barack Obama is elected to a second term.”

In addition to delegates who are elected at caucus, those who meet the qualifications may apply to be add-on delegates in the following categories: youth, minority, and disabled. Applications are available by contacting the Democratic Party at 617-939-0800. Completed applications must be returned to the Democratic State Committee by March 30, 2012.

The Hudson Democratic Town Committee meets on the second Saturday of the month, at 1 p.m., in the Hudson Fire Department headquarters.
