Local Workshop-July 12th 9:30-12:30, Creating A Cohesive Message

We invite you to a Candidate Training Workshop on Saturday, July 12, 2014, from 9:30 - 12:30 PM at the Emma Ramsey Center, Route 125, in Milton. Sponsored by The Tri Town Democrats (Farmington, Milton, and New Durham)

Creating a Cohesive Candidate Message that Attracts and Keeps Voters
Candidates for local office often struggle with how to craft messages that will resonate with their potential voters. The broad messages at the national level can help but also can drown out your campaign and leave voters in the dark about who you really are as a candidate and as a person. In this workshop, you will explore how to use the progressive narrative to craft positive messages that will not only resonate with voters but also will showcase your values as a candidate. You will be able to use your messages to give short speeches, develop candidate introductory flyers, add content to your website or Facebook page, and write effective and positive letters to the editor. This workshop is appropriate for all candidates, campaign managers, campaign volunteers, and anyone interested in developing a positive message that promotes an America that works for all of us.

Light refreshments will be served.

Help Raise Money For Local Dems-Thank Democrats Campaign-New Choices Available

Help Raise Money For Local Dems-Thank Democrats Campaign-New Choices Available

In the winter of 2010 a group of Strafford County Democratic Grassroots Activists aged 17 to 70 gathered because they were dedicated to promoting a Pro-Democratic message for the November election.  The bumper stickers are part of the messaging campaign that we are undertaking here in Strafford County, New Hampshire (where some of us call them bumpastickas) and we hope beyond! They were printed by a small woman-owned union print shop in Somersworth, NH.

The Democrats of Strafford County, New Hampshire, want to thank you for all of the hard work that you do on behalf of the Democratic Party.  We are doing our part.  We designed the union-made bumper stickers to get the message out.

Over the past year we have sold bumper stickers from Maine to Alaska and from Massachusetts to Utah.  Our most popular stickers are Medicare, Social Security, and Vet’s Benefits.

Many town and county committees  have purchased our stickers in bulk and have used them to fundraise and doubled their money, charging still only $1. each, or they have handed them out freely.  We ask that people pledge to display the sticker and to help us spread the word about the good things that Democrats have done for this country.

We hope you will consider contributing to this worthwhile cause by buying our terrific bumper stickers.

All proceeds raised from the sale of the bumper stickers go towards electing Democrats in Strafford County, NH.
To purchase go to:

Find us on Facebook at Thank Democrats

 The county committee has produced a new bumper sticker in its “Thank Democrats” series. The new one, which reads simply “Obama Cares.”  Buy them online here.
