Chittenden County Democrats kicked off the 2008 general election campaign with a rally at UVM's Billings Student Center four days after the primary election. The rally was billed as a fundraiser for Democratic legislative candidates in the county. Congressman Peter Welch and Speaker of the House and gubernatorial candidate Gaye Symington were the headliners at the event. Also speaking were Lieutenant Governor candidate Tom Costello and Secretary of State Deb Markowitz. Around 100 people attended the event held in one of UVM's oldest halls.

Post-Primary Campaign Kickoff Rally!

With the Vermont Primary election on Tuesday, September 9th, the general election season will kick into gear as we head down the homestretch to November 4th and a Democratic Victory in Vermont.

With the general election in mind, the Chittenden County Democratic Committee invites you to join us in a Post-Primary Campaign Kickoff Rally at the UVM Billings Center on Saturday, September 13th, 6-8 PM. Our Chittenden County State Senate and House candidates will join Congressman Peter Welch, Gubernatorial Candidate Gaye Symington and Secretarty of State Deb Markowitz as honored guests.

A donation of $25 per person will be used to help our candidates that face Republican challengers in November. Help us keep and expand our Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, and let's give Gaye Symington and our Lieutenant Governor candidate, whom you will nominate this Tuesday, a big boost toward victory in November. We can't afford 2 more years of Jim Douglas and Brian Dubie and their vetoes.

You can make your donation now by using the "Donate" button to the right, or you can pay at the door. Thank you for your continued support.
