Scenes From Columbia County's Democratic Convention

Democratic Countywide, City and Town Candidates for Office all helped raise funds for the campaigns but more importantly they also helped create new bonds between those who seek to serve the residents of the County, the City and the Towns of Columbia County.

On October 23rd 2011, Dozens of Candidates for County and Town Offices converged for the very first Columbia County Democratic Convention. The event took place at Helsinki Hudson. This marked the first time that the Countywide Democratic candidates and candidates for Town Boards, Common Council, Town Supervisor, Town Clerk, Tax Collector and Highway Superintendent were all in the same place at the same time.

Many candidates met their counterparts from other towns for the first time at this event.  The Columbia County Democratic Committee sees this event as another step forward toward greater cooperation between elected officials and between the municipalities that they represent.

Following is a group photo of many of the Democratic candidates running countywide and in the city and towns of Columbia County along with the the Officers of the Columbia County Democratic Committee.
