Volunteers wanted in Somerset County
Our mission at Somerset County Maine Democratic Party is working together through grassroot operations to preserve the values we hold important with honesty, pride and authenticity. The only way that we can carry out our mission is through volunteers. All members of this committee are volunteers and do not get paid including the executive committee. We cannot do this alone.
Somerset County by far is one of the most conservative counties in the State of Maine. Although we have open minds we must uphold the values that we hold important. Each town in Somerset County has the ability to form a municipal committee. There are no set hours and you as an individual choose when and where you want to volunteer. If you cannot participate in an event or project that is okay. Without help we cannot elect Democrats or have our voices heard.
Volunteering is not all about fundraising or making phone calls. There are a variety of tasks that can be done. As I have stated previously we cannot do this alone. As a group we have the power to make changes without our county, Maine and the United States.
If volunteering is not an option there are other options for you to be able to get your voice heard throughout Somerset County. We need individuals to join local municipal committees and also be part of the county committee. Volunteers are wanted in Somerset County; however we value participation so that you can get your voice heard. We are not powerless and often we feel discouraged that the political system does not work.
