    There is a Face Book group named Orange County Democrats. I suppose that most on the County Democratic Committee are aware of its existence and that many are themselves members. The group uses an official looking party logo as its header.


    My understanding is that the group has no endorsement from the OCDC and speaks only for itself. That “itself” is defined and enforced by Jon Chase of the Cornwall Committee and Jon Chase alone.


    A visitor to the OCD Face Book page will assume that it is the official page of the OCDC for the reasons listed above. It is misleading, if not intentionally deceptive.
    Is this acceptable to the County Committee?


    Thank you for your consideration.

    (Repeating the note I just left on Facebook)


    Good morning,


    I am a native of Afton, NY, a retired Air Force veteran, and a Democratic candidate for President.


    On March 23rd, I start my fifth campaign swing and second through New England. I will be passing through the Newburgh area on the 23rd, and would be honored if local Democrats will consider meeting me for lunch that day. Can we arrange something?


    You can learn more about me and my campaign at Alan Howe 2020 on Facebook and at HowedefendsAmerica.org.


    I hope to hear from you soon.


    Best regards,

    Alan Howe

    Carlisle, PA

    Hello. I live in Monroe and would like to help on Election Day next week.

    Do you need any help in driving people to the polls?

    I am very mobile and would be happy to help anywhere in the county.

    As a concerned Democrat in the Town of Newburgh I am interested in getting as many people as possible to vote on November 6. Is this committee currently organizing events or other efforts to convince people to vote? Please let me know.

    I just moved to the area and would like to be involved with the Democratic Party and would like work on and be part of the mid-term election campaign. I worked on both Obama campaigns in Lenox, Ma. Would appreciate it if someone would contact me and steer me in the right direction. Thank you.

    Hi. I live in Orange County and need a ride to the polls on primary day. Is there any way you all could help me? I don’t drive, and any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Basile and the State Republicans are abysmal. The entire Orange County Blue team can win out . Drumpf is facing the worst time in his life.The Sheriff should have a write in opponent. Short of that, the deputy Sheriff’s union needs to be attacked for how they labeled and attacked our Blue team. Our team needs press and now. SUV’s needed for Saturday at CommunityDay. The New Windsor republicans are ruthless more than ever. The Chief of Staff position is a joke. A politically made position. TomDiNapoli has to check New Windsor from top to bottom. The recreation dept. is another place. The director writes in his column political retorts. Since there is no County Comptroller, someone has to check things out.

    Greetings,


    I’m NYS District 104 Asssemblyman Frank Skartados’ policy director and a member of his campaign staff.


    Would you please let me know when your committee is meeting over the next two months so that we may schedule a time for him to address the committee to seek its nomination for the election this fall?


    Thank you,

    I want to be involved in helping in any way I can for the 2018 midterm elections. I’m willing to drive people to get registered to vote and take them on election day to vote. Please let me know what I can do to help.

    Is this the real page for the Orange County Dems? is there another page that is updated regularly?

    I don’t understand, the election was over in November.

    Isn’t there anything that the Dems are doing right now that would be better to have on the page?

    Aren’t there elections we should be getting ready to support candidates?

    Aren’t the dems marching on January 20th.

    I think it would be better to shut down the page for now until it can be updated.

    Thank you for listening to my concerns.

    Holiday events? How many are calling NW town officials to support Judge Thorpe? Community protests may work.

    It is So Sad that in the Town of Deerpark, there were absolutely no options. All positions, offices, were uncontested. The Democratic party in Deerpark is virtually non-existent. It is very Sad. Why does the committee have 3 members of one family and three members of another family on the committee? Does the County have any answers?
