Mole's Progressive Democrat

For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    The Vernon Township Democratic Municipal Committee is the Vernon branch of the Sussex County Democratic Committee. Our mission is to promote the Democratic cause and develop the local Democratic organization to help elect Democrats at all levels of government. While we are naturally particularly interested in local Vernon government, we are also concerned with county, state, and national affairs.

    Although voting membership is by election or appointment, meetings are open to all, and you don't have to be a voting member to be active in the Committee's work. There are committee openings in some districts, so if you are interested in serving as a committee member let us know.

    The VTDMC meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Nordic House (formerly the Internat Cafe) 233 Route 94, Vernon, NJ 07462. except as noted. In addition, events of interest coming up in the next few months are listed below.
