CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Democratic Committee (CCDC) held its regular monthly meeting this week using a virtual application with attendees joining the meeting safely from their home computers, devices and telephones.
Members reported participating in virtual phone banks to help the Pennsylvania Dems “Back to Blue” campaign. The CCDC is also providing phone bank opportunities in Clearfield County for volunteers who wish to contact voters about mail-in ballot options.
If someone wants to volunteer, they may call the CCDC and leave a detailed message at 814-205-3451. Terry Noble, chair of the Pennsylvania Democratic Rural Caucus, spoke about important events geared towards addressing the unique needs of rural citizens in Pennsylvania, including a roundtable in which Senator Bob Casey will discuss the challenges facing rural Pennsylvania and how its Democratic platform will maximize opportunities for rural areas.
Another unique event in Harrisburg is an upcoming socially-distanced signing ceremony for the Rural Bill of Rights on the steps of the State Capitol building in Harrisburg.
For more information on the Rural Bill of Rights, you may contact the CCDC or go to: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/rural-bill-of-rights/. Both events are offered virtually so that anyone may join from the safety of their homes or offices.
The CCDC has had many requests for yard signs and will maintain office hours so that voters have an opportunity to show their support. The CCDC currently has a satellite office hosted by the Clearfield Borough First Ward Democratic Precinct Chair and is searching for office space in DuBois.
If anyone has office space available to rent to the CCDC in DuBois, please call the CCDC. Office hours in downtown Clearfield, on North Second Street, are: Mondays from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., Wednesdays from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m., Fridays from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
The group also discussed the upcoming election as one of the most important elections of our lifetimes. Consequently, the CCDC plans to meet twice a month until Election Day.
The next CCDC meeting will be held virtually on Monday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. If you are interested in attending the virtual event, you may call the CCDC or e-mail at email@example.com.
Monthly meetings are generally held on the second Monday of every month. Registered Democrats and those seeking Democratic nomination for office are encouraged to attend.
