County Reorg Caucus Results

The caucus held on Wednesday evening at Contois Auditorium was well attended and ended early enough for attendees to catch the opening pitch of Boston Red Sox-Colorado Rockies World Series on TV. The election of officers resulted in the following:
  • Chair: Mike Yantachka (Charlotte)
  • Vice-Chair: Robert Ready (Colchester)
  • Secretary: Thomas Walsh (South Burlington)
  • Treasurer: Ken Brown (Hinesburg)
  • Asst. Treasurer: Wendy Patterson (Hinesburg)
  • State Committeewoman: Marcella Chiarello (Shelburne)
  • State Committeeman: Tom Obbagy (Jericho)
  • Alternate State Committee Delegates: Mary Sullivan, Steve Boyan, Joanna Cole (all Burlington)

The keynote speaker of the evening was Jill Krowinski, Executive Director of the Vermont Democratic Party. She encouraged everyone to get actively involved with the various opportunities to further the message and goals of the VDP. These opportunities include the Media Corps, which informs participants about important issues for letters to the editor, the Douglas-watch project, and the voter file project.

A fund-raiser raffle was held for a bottle of Charlotte Village Winery Merlot, a huge jar of Coyote Ridge Apiary honey, and 20% of the take of raffle ticket sales.

We need you to help with several "task-forces" or subcommittees, including planning, fund-raising, and voter file coordination. So, contact Chairman Mike Yantachka or Vice Chair Robert Ready if you would like to help in any of these ways.
