NDCC Chairman’s Message

Notes from the Chair

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Calling Nashua Democrats.  The Nashua Municipal Election is coming up in just a few weeks, Tuesday, November 7, 2017, and we have a lot of work to do to insure our preferred candidates get elected.  Your time, your voice, your generosity, and your vote will be critical to the success of this campaign—a campaign to restore common sense to our city government:  Aldermanic Council, School Board, and all wards.  We have to overcome obstruction and bring reason to the local government and support our outstanding Mayor, Jim Donchess.

With all the crazy, outlandish news and the constant barrage of comments and actions out of Washington—and Concord for that matter—it can be depressing and disheartening.  What can we do?  Many people tell me they want to take action, to make change, to have an impact and to fight against the Trump administration and all that it stands for—and stands against.  Remember, please, all politics is local; it really is.  And right here in Nashua we can make an enormous difference with political action.  Please Volunteer!

We need people to make calls, to knock on doors, to distribute literature, to post signs.  This election is very important, and is the prelude to 2018 and 2020.  We must build the grass roots now and make change locally, then statewide, and of course nationally.  We need your help.

You can also sign up to knock doors and make phone calls HERE! 

In order to run a coordinated, efficient and effective campaign, the Executive Board has authorized, and we have hired, a part time Coordinated Campaign Director, Adam T Huberty.  Adam is very familiar with Nashua and local politics.  He is a lawyer who most recently worked on the Dan Weeks campaign.  If you can volunteer, please reach out to Adam by e-mail at athurberty@gmail.com or by phone at 484-682-9036.  Whether you have only a few hours or many, your help is very much needed now!

Do you DEM??? That is, do you donate every month? We also need funds for signs and literature for our great candidates, and just a small gift—or whatever you can give—each month would be extremely helpful.  We’ll make it easy for you:  go to the NDCC Website at www.nashuadems.org and while there click on the Act Blue, Donate button–monthly.  Or you can simply send a check.We are determined to turn Nashua Blue for 2017, 2018, and beyond!  We are building our Democratic base, developing a terrific campaign plan, coordinating with the state party, training volunteers, and organizing and targeting campaign volunteer and candidate efforts.

Please join in!  Don’t forget our next NDCC monthly meeting coming up on October 16, 7:00 p.m. at the Nashua Public Library.  Our guest speakers will be Paul Hodes and Chase Hagaman of the Concord Coalition.  You will find this very informative and interesting: and at that time we will have only three weeks left in our Municipal Campaign.  Let’s get to work!

Thank you for all you do,
Representative Skip Cleaver
Chair, Nashua Democratic City Committee
