Dear Fellow Democrat,
The Mercer County Democratic Endorsement Convention will take place on Wednesday, March 4 at the Windsor Athletic Club, 99 Clarksville Road, West Windsor. A NOTICE is being sent to voting delegates. While only qualified delegates can vote, Everyone is Welcome to Attend!
Registration will begin at 5 p.m. Food, sponsored by county candidates, will be available, and the presidential candidates have been invited to sponsor information tables.
The Convention will be gaveled to order at 6:15 p.m., PROMPTLY.
The following individuals have filed letters of interest and deemed Qualified Candidates for endorsement by the Convention Committee, with no opposing candidate:
U.S. Senate: Corey Booker
Congress, D12: Bonnie Watson Coleman
Sheriff: Jack Kemler
County Clerk: Paula Sollami-Covello
Freeholder: John Cimino
Freeholder : Lucylle Walter
For Congress, D4, three candidates have filed for endorsement: David Applefield, Christine Conforti, and Stephanie Schmidt. A vote will take place pursuant to the MCDC rules. ONLY voting delegates who reside in Hamilton and Robbinsville can vote.
For President, after widely soliciting input from county Democrats, the Convention Committee has determined to hold a Straw Poll, whereby voting delegates will be asked to rank their presidential choices. Princeton Democrats have generously offered their system to efficiently process the vote. The purpose of the Straw Poll is to generate engagement, take the temperature on that evening and have some fun. Mercer County is not endorsing for President, and this activity does not constitute in any way an endorsement.
Thank you to the Convention Committee, our municipal and county leadership and volunteers for all of your help and support, much appreciated. We look forward to a super Convention, and Mercer County Democrats will go forward united toward our all-important November election goals!
Mayor Janice S. Mironov
Mercer County Democratic Chairperson
