UPDATED, May 25: Democrats in Arlington held a caucus May 14 at the Robbins Library Community Room to elect delegates to the 2019 Massachusetts Democratic Convention.

Elected were Adam Badik, Robin Bergman, Maureen Crewe, Pauline Gardiner, Adam MacNeill, Pearl Morrison, Christine O'Connell, Paul Schlichtman, Paulette Schwartz, Marlene Silva, David Swanson, Stephanie Swanson, Alice Trexler, Jordan Weinstein and Edward Witham.

Chair Aimee Coolidge will serve as an ex-officio delegate.

Other Arlingtonians serving as ex-officio delegates are Patricia Deal, Heather Fowles and James DiTullio, all of whom serve on the Democratic State Committee, as well as state Rep. Sean Garballey and state Sen. Cindy Friedman.

The convention is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14, at the MassMutual Center in Springfield.

Democrats from across the state will come together to discuss party business and celebrate their successes as they prepare for upcoming elections.

The fact that this date is the same as that of Arlington’s Town Day accounts for the small number of delegates; up to 37 could have been elected.
