The Democratic City of Athol Committee will hold a virtual meeting on January 11 at 6:30 p.m. to plan for the 2022 election season, when state voters elect a governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, attorney general , a Commonwealth Secretary and Auditor. All senators and state officials will also be on the November ballot, and the redistribution will mean Senator Anne Gobi will no longer represent Athol. Instead, Athol will be moved to Senator Jo Comerford’s district. The committee will also discuss plans for a Democratic caucus, to be held on Saturday March 5, to elect delegates to the June 4 nominating convention to be held in Worcester.
The democratic city of Athol committee holds its meetings, open to the general public, on the second Tuesday of each month. Most meetings take place both in person at Liberty Hall and via Zoom, although the January meeting is completely virtual due to concerns over COVID-19. Candidates for elections are often invited as speakers at the start of the 6.30 p.m. meetings. Last month, the Committee heard from Senator Diana DiZoglio, candidate for the post of auditor, and Quentin Palfrey, who is exploring a possible candidacy for the post of attorney general. The January 11 meeting will include a question and answer session with Danielle Allen, candidate for governor.
