JAMESTOWN – Democrats in the city of Jamestown are mobilizing in preparation for the local elections to be held this year in November.
Jamestown City Democratic Committee Chairman Jim Walton is reporting that a sub-committee has been set up to review and update the local party’s platform, which will serve as the basis for candidates running in this fall’s election.
Walton says city residents Frank Besse will chair the committee, along with Vanessa Weinert and County Legislator Chuck Nazzaro.
In a statement, Walton said the party is at a point in time when voters are questioning everything that is going on locally and across the country, and new directions and new energy is needed to move ahead.
Walton said he hopes the party can craft a platform that is representative of what is needed, and strike a balance between that and what we can afford.
Comments and suggestions on the platform from local Democrats are not only welcome, but encouraged. You can contact Frank Besse at frankrbesse @ gmail . com or Jim Walton at jimwalton422 @ msn . com .
