A Message From The Chair

July 10, 2020

 Dear Fellow Democrat,

That was definitely a Primary Election like no other!!  The ballots are still being counted as you receive this communication, and the current state date for certification of election results is, July 24.  Election results tallied to date can be viewed on-line (CLICK HERE).

Congratulations in Congressional District 12, to our own overwhelming primary election winner Bonnie Watson-Coleman!

Congratulations in Congressional District 4, to Stephanie Schmid on her victory in a three way contest.  A robust race was run by Christine Conforti.  And, sadly, candidate David Applefield passed away Wednesday morning, our prayers go out to his wife and family.
And  congratulations to all of our great County candidates and Municipal candidates who were formally nominated in the July 7 Primary Election!  We will all work actively to ensure their election.

The Mercer County Democratic Committee is holding a Fundraiser, “Mercer’s Rising Stars,” on Wednesday, October 14, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Coopers Riverview, at 50 Riverview Plaza, Trenton.  Format details to follow as we get closer, safety & health dependent.

Please support our MCDC event and our 2020 Rising Stars. Click HERE for Flyer & Ticket, Sponsorship, Support opportunities.

 We are highly excited to announce the exceptional individuals who we will be honoring as our 2020 Mercer County Democratic Committee Rising Stars!

  • Kristen Epstein(West Windsor)
  • Olympia l’llou Perry (Lawrence)
  • Chris Malikschmitt(Hopewell)
  • Tai Wilson (Trenton)
  • Jennifer Coffey (Hamilton)

Rising Star is a person who has shown a strong and rapidly growing commitment to MCDC principles, ideals, candidates, and elected officials. They are individuals who have become active recently and who have become a valued member of the local party or local democratic organization. A Rising Star is NOT a young Democrat – while they may be young, it is their newness to the party, rather than their age that matters.  The strength of the Democratic Party in Mercer County is built on the hopes, dreams and actions of folks just like these 5 stellar individuals who personify the future of our party today into the future.

LET’S MOBILIZE FOR NOVEMBER:  We are actively pulling together plans for Mercer Democrats to meaningful participate and make a difference in ensuring the election of Vice-President Joe Biden as our President on November 3.  Let me know if you wish to be involved in this planning organizational phase.

Once again, every single day, we are reminded just how consequential this national election, for President and for Congress, is to our lives and our Country’s future.  Let’s all plan to be there for the sake of our families, our communities and our Nation!  Keep the Faith!
