The Democratic Party of Oregon Platform Convention will be held March 16-18 at Parish Middle School and North Salem High School.
At our Jan. 8 Linn County Democratic Central Committee (LCDCC) monthly general meeting, we passed a motion to open nominations for Linn County delegates and alternates to the State Platform Convention.
If you would like to be considered for nomination, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your:
• Full legal name
• Full mailing address
• Email address
• Phone number.
Our delegates and alternates must be registered Democrats and residents of Linn County.
The nomination period will remain open until our next monthly general meeting on Thursday, Feb. 1, when our LCDCC Precinct Committee People will officially nominate and vote on the nominees.
Linn County can have up to 22 delegates and 11 alternates at the state convention.

The second draft of the state platform will be circulated later this month. When we receive it, we’ll send it out on the hotlines. Suggestions for revisions and additions can be made at that time.
Also, the Benton County Democrats have invited any interested Linn County Dems to join them for a county platform convention to review the second draft of the state platform and send along any revisions and addition to the Democratic Party of Oregon. That convention will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, at Grace Lutheran Church, 435 N.W. 21st, Corvallis.
Thanks for considering delegate and alternate nominations to the State Platform Convention.
Linn County Democrats
P.S. A special thank you to the 10 Linn County Dems who signed up in December to work on platform subcommittees. Your work is greatly appreciated.
