Hendry Democrats Meet in Pioneer on 12/01
The Hendry County Democratic Party will hold its December monthly meeting at the Pioneer Plantation home of Henry and Victoria Avellaneda, 2100 Riviera Avenue, Clewiston 33440, on Saturday, December 1, at 9:30 a.m. All interested Hendry County Democrats and supporters are welcome particularly those interested in becoming active in what the future holds for Hendry County and its residents. Hendry County currently has a total of 10 Voting Precincts, with each precinct allocated a minimum of one man and one woman to serve as "precinct captains" or links between the residents of their precinct, the Hendry County Democratic Party, the Florida Democratic Party, and The Democratic Party. Precincts with more than 1,000 registered voters may also have two additional people -- one man and one woman -- serve as "precinct captains".
Each of Hendry County's 10 precincts has at least one vacancy on the Hendry County Democratic Executive Committee, and Precincts 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9 & 10 have more than 1,000 registered voters entitling them to have an additional two women and two men represent their interests on the Hendry County DEC. The major items to be covered at the December meeting are putting together a comprehensive plan of action for the 2020 Elections, updating our 51 year old by-laws that have not been revised in the past 34 years, and how we can promote affirmative action by reaching out to our younger voters, our one-time minorities that includes both ethnic groups and women in general, and our agricultural base at all levels that has been the mainstay of our local economy going back for well over 100 years. Please bring your photo ID with signature and your Voter Registration Information Card that includes your registration number if you are interested in becoming a "precinct captain" effective no later than our next Hendry County Democratic Party meeting subject to the availability of a notary public on December 1.
