Democrats in Newburyport will be holding a caucus at Newburyport City Hall on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 10am to elect 17 delegates and 16 alternates to the 2014 Massachusetts Democratic Convention, where Democrats from across Massachusetts will vote to endorse candidates for statewide office.

The convention will be held on Friday, June 13 and Saturday, June 14, 2014 at the DCU Center in Worcester.

"This is going to be an exciting year as we build on our recent successes and prepare for the elections in 2014," commented Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman Senator Tom McGee. "Caucuses are the next step in growing our community organizing strategy for victory. People who were part of candidate campaigns in 2012 and 2013 have the opportunity to become part of their local Democratic Party organizations."

The caucus is open to all registered Democrats in Newburyport, 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. City Hall is handicapped accessible. Details on the caucus rules can be found at

For more information on the local caucus or the committee, please contact Newburyport Democratic City Committee chair Ed Cameron at or check out

Next time someone tells you they don't understand Obamacare

The White House, Washington
Hello, everyone --
The Affordable Care Act. Health Reform. Obamacare. Whatever you'd like to call it, it's going mean something very tangible for millions more Americans in just four days.
Starting October 1 -- that's next Tuesday -- Americans who need or want health insurance will be able to be able to go to They'll be able to compare plans based on their needs, and they'll be able to sign up for quality, affordable health coverage.
There are folks out there with questions about what this law means for them. It's on all of us to make sure those questions are answered. That's the only way this is going to work.
Our team has put together a great video that unpacks the law, piece by piece, in an incredibly simple way. It explains exactly what October 1 is going to mean for those millions of folks who need coverage.
Take a look, but don't let it stop with you. We all know at least one person who either doesn't have insurance, or wants to know more about the law. Forward this on to other folks who you know need to see it.
You've probably heard about the 3.1 million young adults who have gained coverage through their parents' plans, the 6.3 million seniors who are paying less for prescription drugs, and the more than 100 million Americans who have gotten free preventative care like mammograms and cancer screenings.
Right now, the best thing we can do is make sure that, ahead of October 1, we don't let valuable information like this die in our inboxes. So don't let it happen. Start talking to your friends, your coworkers, your family members. Answer their questions. Make sure they know how to get covered, and then ask them to help others get covered.
That starts with sharing this video, right now, with the folks you know need to see it:
Let's get to it.
