Club Fundraiser set for 10/2

The Hamilton Township Democratic Club is hosting its Second Annual ‘On To Victory’ Reception on Wednesday, October 2, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Hamilton Room at Stone Terrace by John Henry’s (2275 Kuser Road) in Hamilton.

We are honored that Milly Silva, Democratic Candidate for Lieutenant Governor, will join us to salute our Democratic candidates at the state, county and local levels. State Senator Barbara Buono, Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate, has also been invited to participate in our program. As the Hamilton/Mercer Labor Unions and their leaders have been partners and supporters of the Club’s dedication to making a better future for Hamilton, there will be a special tribute to them as part of the program.

Our event’s theme reflects our momentum and commitment for the Democratic party to regain the Hamilton Mayor’s office and four Council seats. We have excellent candidates in Barbara Plumeri for Mayor, and Joe Santo, Nina Melker, Dan Keelan, and Tennille McCoy for Council. We are all dedicated to restoring honest responsible leadership to our home town, which is the state’s ninth largest municipality. We need your financial support to help make this a reality on Election Day and beyond.

Your generous Support will give us the necessary resources to win. The proceeds from this fundraiser will be dedicated to our local campaign.

There are four levels of Sponsorship opportunities available:

Red – $1000. (includes 10 complimentary tickets and signage)

White – $500. (includes 5 complimentary tickets and signage)

Blue – $250. (includes 3 complimentary tickets and signage)

Patriotic – $100. (includes 1 complimentary ticket and signage)

Individual tickets are $50 each.

Eileen will need confirmation of your Sponsorship by September 28 to prepare signage recognition. She will welcome the opportunity to discuss your Support.

Change in Meeting Schedule

At the June Meeting, the Hamilton Democrats decided to change the day and location of club meetings. Starting in July, and ending in November, all club meetings will take place on the second Wednesday of the month — not the first — and at the campaign headquarters (1838 on Route 33) on Route 33 in Hamilton — not the township library.


Special Convention This Wednesday

The Hamilton Democratic Municipal Committee will meet on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 7:00pm; sign in at 6:30pm on the lower floor meeting room of the Township Library. This is a mandatory meeting for all Committee persons for the purpose of choosing a candidate for the four year council seat recently vacated.
