2018 3rd Congressional District Convention  

American Legion

1116 Angelo Road, Sparta, WI 54656

Mar 10, 2018    9:00 am - 2:00 pm (GMT -6:00) CST

The 3rd Congressional District Convention will be held March 10 in Sparta at the American Legion, starting about 9:00 AM.  The 3rd CD spans from approximately River Falls to Eau Claire, south to the Illinois border.  The program generally runs until about 2:00 PM.  Lunch is included, onsite.  The Congressional District organizations serve as sort of a bridge between the 72 counties and the state party.  The purpose of the CD conventions is to:

  • Receive resolutions from the 17 counties in the 3rd CD, aggregate them, and select 10 to forward to the state convention for consideration in the platform.
  • Select officers for the Administrative Committee of the party, which establishes policies and working conditions for the state party staff.
  • Assist in getting our 3rd CD Congressperson, Ron Kind, reelected. Ron Kind will attend, speak, and take questions (Washington schedule allowing).

Most of the time will be taken up by talks from the candidates for Governor and other state-wide races.  This is probably the best chance we'll have to listen to and ask questions of them before the primary election.  It's always interesting to meet up with other committed Dems from the west coast of WI.

To vote on resolutions and officers, you must be a party member and delegate from Pierce County.  As county party chairperson, Jim Camery selects the delegates.  We always have more opportunities than people wanting to be delegates.  If you would like to be a delegate, please let Jim know (PierceCtyDems@gmail.com).
