Democratic Party of Fulton County seeks committee members 2011.10.19

Written by David Green.

The Democratic Party of Fulton County is looking for progressive candidates to fill the membership of the Central Committee in Fulton County.

Ray Ramsdell, Central Committee Chair, said the committee needs individuals who want to be involved in the party and feel under represented—and who are prepared to make a commitment. 

Each voting precinct in Fulton County can elect one representative to the committee. Several precincts are currently without any representation and all positions are open for election during the spring 2012 vote. Current representatives who wish to remain on the Central Committee must be re-elected in order to continue as members during the next term. 

 Once elected, members are expected to serve a four-year commitment.  Members are expected to attend several meetings a year, organize in his/her precinct, become actively involved in campaign events including the booth at the fair, local parades and party fund raising.

“This commitment of time and resources is essential if the Democratic Party is to be viable in Fulton County,” Ramsdell said.

 Members will be elected in the spring 2012 primary election. More than one individual may run in each precinct. A declaration of candidacy must be made prior to Dec. 7, 2011.

Paperwork may be picked up at the Fulton County Board of Elections at 135 Courthouse Plaza in Wauseon. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. No collection of signatures is required. Registration is all that is needed to appear on the ballot.

  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
