Caucuses will be taking place in the Village of Youngstown over coming days.
The Porter Democratic Committee announced that registered Democrats in the village would hold their caucus on Wednesday, March 21, 6:30 p.m. in the Red Brick School village center, 240 Lockport St., in the Cora Gushee room (third floor level).
Town of Porter Democratic Chairman Ernest A. Lavigueur advises that only a currently enrolled member of the Democratic Party who is a qualified voter in the Village of Youngstown can submit a candidate's name for consideration and vote in the caucus. The position of mayor is for a two-year term to complete the unexpired term of the late Mayor Neil Riordan. Each trustee position is for a four-year term. Those chosen by the caucus will appear on the Democrat Party line in the 2012 Village of Youngstown elections.
At the request of the Town of Porter Democratic Committee, Niagara County Democratic Chairman Jeremy J. Schnurr has appointed Youngstown resident Anthony J. Clark to conduct and oversee the caucus.
Chairman Lavigueur urges all to attend the caucus and witness American politics at its grassroots. The Porter Democratic Committee will provide refreshments immediately after the caucus. New York State Voter Registration Forms for future elections will also be available. For more information, contact Chairman Lavigueur at 745-7626.
Meanwhile Town of Porter Republican Chairman Duffy Johnston announced that the Youngtown Village Republican Committee would caucus on Monday, March 26, at 7.p.m., also at the Red Brick village center in the Cora Gushee Room.
