It's Convention Time!
Michigan Democrats will meet March 21 in Lansing to endorse candidates for the Michigan Supreme Court and potentially other statewide races, giving our candidates a head start on organizing before they can be officially nominated next August.
To get ready for that convention, Livingston Dems will hold a county convention on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. to select people to serve on committees for the state convention and consider any resolutions to be passed on to the state resolutions committee.
Our county convention will be followed by the party's regular business meeting at approximately 7:30 p.m. Both will be at the Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton, 3333 S. Old 23, Brighton Township.
Here is the official call to convention.
