An endorsement meeting of the Ward 1 Democratic Committee was held on Thursday, June 30, 2016 at the Salesian Boys & Girls Club.

The purpose of this meeting was to consider an endorsements for state and county offices on the ballot in the upcoming election.

The meeting was attended by thirteen (13) members of the Ward committee. The candidates who addressed the committee in person included candidates for Registry of Probate:

The following candidates sent representatives to speak on their behalf:

Steve Murphy,

Stephanie Everett and

Katherine Forde.

Sheriff Steve Tompkins & Alexander Rhalimi both attended as candidates for Suffolk County Sheriff.

Stephen Borelli candidate for Governor's Council also attended.

The candidates or their representatives each delivered five-minute speeches about their backgrounds, qualifications and their platforms.

The candidates presented great information and those in attendance asked some great questions, which spurred a lively and informative discussion.

Following the presentations by the candidates the Ward committee took an endorsement vote, with 12 members in attendance at the time of the vote a minimum of 8 votes was required for a candidate endorsement.

In the race for Suffolk County Registry of Deeds none of the candidates garnered enough votes to receive an endorsement.

The committee did vote to endorse the following candidates:

Sheriff Steve Tompkins for Suffolk County Sheriff,

Stephen Borelli for Governor's Council,

Representative Adrian Madaro for State Representative and

Senator Joseph Boncore for State Senator.

Voters head to the polls on September 8, 2016 for the primary election.

The Ward Committee also voted to extend the deadline for registered Ward 1 Democrats to apply for a vacant seat on the committee.

In order to fill a vacant seat on the Committee, the committee members would like to request resumes and a statement of interest.

The statement of interest should be at least a paragraph in length, but no more the one (1) page. The statement of interest should explain why the applicant would like to serve on the Ward Committee.

Resumes and statements of interest can be emailed to bosward1dems@gmail.com. The deadline to submit these documents is September 1, 2016.

The Committee will then decide which candidates to invite to meet with the Committee. Following the in person meeting the committee will vote to elect a new member to fill the vacancy.
