From Chairman Craig Stephens:
"The reorganization of the Portage County Democratic Party will take place on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 @ 6 pm at the Ravenna Elks Club located at 776 N Freedom St., Ravenna OH 44266. Pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code and our Party’s Constitution at the reorganization meeting several objectives will be accomplished:
First, duly elected candidates for precinct committee will receive the oath of office from the party’s current Parliamentarian, Glenda Enders.
Second, after receiving the oath of office the central committee people will then elect party officers for the period from 2018 to 2022. The officers to be elected are Chair, 1st Vice Chair, 2nd Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Parliamentarian.
The method of election of these individuals will be as follows:
Nomination of a person to hold the office will be made from the members of the central committee. There will be no speeches relative to nomination of a specific candidate. After the nominations have been received and the nominations closed then each candidate will receive 3 minutes to address the central committee. A vote will be taken of the membership to elect a person for that specific office. The voting will be by written ballot subject to later examination if requested. All votes will be public to ensure transparency in our electoral process.
Should you have any questions regarding the meeting or the election of the new officers you may contact me, the current Chair at 330-715-2229. Thank you for your participation and support of the Democratic Party."
