Genesee County Democratic Women's Caucus

Last month (December…can you believe it’s January already?) a few of the female members of the Genesee County Democratic Committee discussed formation of a Women’s Caucus. We discussed fund raising, volunteerism, and expanding the group to the larger four county GLOW coalition (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Wyoming). One example of a fund raiser is to put on breakfasts or luncheons for female candidates or the wives of up ticket candidates (Schumer, Paterson, Cuomo, Gillibrand, …). We would also like to help form a Young Democrats Committee.

In a big election year, such as this one, we could share the work load and responsibilities for organizing and mobilizing for activities, such as the very successful event we had at Sweet Briar last summer.

We are looking to expand the group and hope that you will consider joining. We recognize that everyone is quite busy and believe that participation in the Women’s Caucus wouldn’t really require meetings as we can have discussions and make plans through e-mail, shared documents, or tools such as Face Book.

If you are interested please post a comment or send me an e-mail to [email protected].

As always, thank you for your consideration.

I agree with Bea. I know that I wanted to get involved for years but never really knew how.

Thanks! I'm with you, Beth, I didn't know how either until a friend called me one day last summer. Sooooo glad she did.

A great bunch of spirited women! And we met right here on The Batavian. How easily we made the transition from cyber friends to real life in person friends. See you all at our UnChristmas - kitchen staple exchange - post holiday - get together!

Just everyone be careful getting there. The weather doesn't look like it will improve very much. Maybe we can reserve half the table as The Batavian Group and the other half of the table as the Face Book Group. We are all on both. Maybe if we give the pizza place a mention, we'll get a group discount. ya think?
