Orleans County Forum: NY-27 Candidate Forum

NY-27 CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE FORUM

The Orleans County Democratic Committee is organizing a NY-27 Congressional Candidate public forum on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at the QWL Building on 3595 State School Road, Albion, NY 14411.

All 5 announced Democratic Candidates for the NY-27 Congressional office have confirmed their intention to participate: Nick Stankevich, Sean Bunny, Tom Casey, Joan Elizabeth Seamans, and Nate McMurray.  Our county committee has made no endorsement in this race and looks forward to hearing equally from all candidates.

This will be a great opportunity for the residents of Orleans County and the surrounding area to find out more about the impressive list of Democratic candidates that are currently running to represent us in the United States House of Representatives.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!


2018 Winter Forum Report

We would like to thank everyone who turned out last night for our 2018 Winter Educational Forum!

And a special thanks goes to Patrick Jordan, President of NYS Young Democrats, who came up from New York City to speak at our forum. Take a moment to visit their website at nysyd.org to find out more about their work. We are looking to support them in establishing a chapter in Orleans County, so send an email to info@orleansdemocrats.com if you are a young Democrat who would like to get involved!


The New York State Young Democrats are the official youth arm of the New York State Democratic Committee. The New York State Young Democrats represent young democrats between the ages of 16-36 living in all of New York’s 62 counties. Members of the organization strive to make a positive difference in the community by working within the political process and upholding the principles of the Democratic Party. The membership base reflects the broad diversity of New York and the party, including high school students, college students, young workers, professionals and families.

Along with Patrick, Jim Renfrew moderated a panel of Kenny Capurso, Andrea Newman, and Mark Steffenilla (Genesee County Young Democrats) through a range of topics and audience questions.

And we were grateful to have in attendance 4 of the 5 announced Democratic candidates in the NY-27 congressional race: Joan Elizabeth Seamans, Nick Stankevich, Sean Bunny, and Tom Casey
