The Nominating Caucus represents the official kick-off of Takoma Park’s election season. It is a great opportunity to see Takoma Park’s small town democracy in action. The Caucus -- when candidates for Mayor and the City Council have their names formally placed on the ballot -- will start at 7:30 PM. Any candidate nominated by one resident and seconded by another automatically gets on the ballot for this fall’s local election.
Several Ward One residents have graciously agreed to nominate me, and I encourage you to watch. Ward One Nominations will be first, and may finish as soon as 8:00 PM, depending on how long the preliminaries take. After Ward One nominations are complete, the other Wards will go in order, with Mayoral nominations at the end of the meeting. You can see more information about the event here on the City’s web site: https://takomaparkmd.gov/news/city-election-information/nominating-caucus/
The Caucus will be held virtually/remotely over Zoom. Only those who plan to speak on behalf of a candidate should register.
