Orleans Democratic Committee: Local Democrats volunteer their time to serve on the Orleans County Democratic Committee. We assist candidates, collect petition signatures, put up yard signs, and help at fundraising and election events. If you have a few hours a month to spare then you can make a big difference in helping to elect more Democratic candidates. We especially need more Democrats to help us on the West and East sides of the county. Every 2 years local Democrats pass petitions for joining our committee. This June we need you!

To get involved contact a current committee member or send us an email at info@orleansdemocrats.com

Workshop – Women Leaders

A message from Diana Kastenbaum: One thing I am passionate about is getting qualified Democratic women in leadership positions and running for office. I am sponsoring this Workshop along with the Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Wyoming (GLOW) Democratic Chairs and the Ontario County Chair to identify women in our rural area who want to run for office or take a leadership position in their communities. The workshop will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Dibble Family Center, 4120 W Main Street Rd, Batavia, NY.

SPACE IS LIMITED AND RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS FREE WORKSHOP. Contact me at diana@dianakastenbaum.com if you are interested in attending.

Albion Election Thank You

Thank You to all those people who have supported us and helped with our campaign.

We could never express all our gratitude to those of you who have assisted in our campaign.  For those who allowed us to put our signs in your yards, distributed our Rack cards, went door-to-door on our behalf, came to help with our Phone Bank and there are of course the many of you who voted for us.  Thank you for your support, trust and enthusiasm.   We all share a love for the Village of Albion and a desire to see it as a great place to live.

Again, thank you for your support.
