The PDTC selected Tamara Harris, PDTC Vice Chair, Patrick McCarthy, PDTC Secretary and Pomfret Selectman, and Maureen Nicholson, Pomfret First Selectman, to attend the State Party Convention on May 6-7. State Party Convention attendees will vote on the State Democratic Platform and will nominate and select Party-endorsed candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, and comptroller, as well as one U.S. Senate seat.
The Democratic Congressional Convention is scheduled on May 9 and the PDTC selected Pat Boyd, state representative for House District 50, Barry Reingold, and Norine Reingold to attend.
