Seth Moulton To Speak At Wilmington Democratic Town Committee Scholarship Breakfast On 5/16
The Wilmington Democratic Town Committee is hosting its Annual Scholarship Breakfast on Saturday, May 16 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM at Rocco’s Restaurant (193 Main Street). The Committee annually provides scholarships to graduating seniors of Wilmington High School and the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School with funds raised from this event.
After breakfast is served, attendees will hear from this year’s featured speaker, Congressman Seth Moulton.
Congressman Seth Moulton served four tours in Iraq as a Marine Corps infantry officer, including two tours as a platoon commander and two tours as a Special Assistant to General David Petraeus. In 2003, Moulton was in the first company of Marines to enter Baghdad. In 2004, he led a platoon during the Battle of Najaf, the fiercest fighting of the war to that time. As a Special Assistant to General David Petraeus, Moulton worked on a small team of Marines leading counterinsurgency operations south of Baghdad in 2005 and during the Surge. He left the Marines in 2008 with the rank of Captain.
Congressman Moulton was elected to Congress in 2014 on a platform of bringing new, bipartisan leadership to Congress. In his first term, Congressman Moulton is focused on economic growth for Massachusetts families and improving veterans’ health care through the VA, where he still receives his care. Congressman Moulton serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Budget Committee and the House Small Business Committee in the 114th Congress.
Wilmington’s State Representatives, Jim Miceli and Ken Gordon, will also speak. The Committee thanks both men for helping bring Moulton to Wilmington.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast, meet your Congressman, and support a great cause for only $20! Contact Wilmington Democratic Town Committee Chairman Gary DePalma at 978-658-2330 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat! Due to limited space and an anticipated high interest level from the community, the Committee cannot guarantee tickets will be available at the door.
Graduating seniors at Wilmington High School and the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School are encouraged to contact their Guidance Offices beginning in early May to learn more about the Wilmington Democratic Town Committee Scholarships. In addition to its traditional scholarship offerings, the Committee is offering a scholarship this year for Shawsheen Tech students who choose to go to work in their trade immediately upon graduation.

Wilmington Democrats To Elect Delegates To State Convention
Democrats in Wilmington will be holding a caucus on Monday, June 1 at 7pm at the Wilmington Fourth of July Building (142 Middlesex Avenue) to elect 11 delegates and 4 alternates to the 2015 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across the state will gather to meet fellow activists and hear from elected officials. The convention will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield.
“This convention will be unique as we build on experiences from many competitive elections these past few years and look to strengthen the party for the future,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman, Senator Tom McGee. “Caucuses are an important step in growing our party engagement at the local level.”
The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Wilmington, and the Democratic Committee welcomes participants. Delegates will be divided equally between men and women, and all ballots will be written and secret. Youth, minorities, and people with disabilities who are not elected as delegates or alternates may apply to be “add-on” delegates. The Fourth of July Building is handicapped accessible. Details on the rules can be found at http://www.massdems.org.
The committee normally meets on the first Monday of the month at 7pm at Wilmington Community Television (10 Waltham Street).
