Gloucester Democrats collect clothing,
phone cards, and clothing for our troops
Once again, the Gloucester Democratic City Committee has organized a collection for our troops stationed overseas. They are gathering clothing (especially underwear and warm socks), as well as phone cards and books. Crossword and sudoko books are among the favorites; so are DVDs. All goods should be brand new, of course.
Items can be dropped off at the Cape Ann Democratic Headquarters in the Main Street Plaza, next to Walgreens. It is open 10am to 6pm weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. The drive will conclude on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Volunteers Are Welcomed
Many opportunities to help with the coordinated campaign are still available
In recent years, we Democrats on Cape Ann have had many happy Novembers, because Democrats won a bunch of elections in a row. We’ve been represented by great Democrats locally, in the Governor’s office, and in the halls of Congress. We can have a happy November 5 this year as well, with your help. Some of our races are far too close for comfort, but we can win through a strong grassroots program. According to the Mass. Democratic Party, based on the 2010 election, it turns out the difference between winning and losing averages out to just 34 people per precinct. Cape Ann Democratic Headquarters has expanded the times available for you to help – we’re trying to make it convenient to participate!
