NEW and UPDATED items are marked and highlighted in the Table of Contents, and in the details.
For UPDATED items, I’ll try to highlight the changed or new bits (like this!)

Any problems, or to submit items for the newsletter, email me at wils…@gmail.com.
Note from the President
I hope this finds you all doing well.
The CC Democratic Clubs have traditionally sponsored a Silent Auction at the annual CC Dems Victory Dinner in May to help raise funds for Democratic outreach in the county. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Victory Dinner had to be cancelled. Though the event was cancelled, the Democrats’ outreach to Carroll County voters is not.
In this election year where the stakes are so high, we have to maximize our efforts to reach voters, but all of that takes money. That’s why the Dem Clubs are sponsoring the “Carroll County Democrats Victory Auction” which is an Online Silent Auction. Items to be auctioned off include: literature, political collectibles, housewares, artwork, gift cards/baskets from local businesses, beauty products. Proceeds from this auction will go toward efforts to get Joe Biden elected, as well as Democratic candidates up and down the ticket. Please check out the “Carroll County Democrats Victory Auction” at https://go.eventgroovefundraising.com/9c3910. By the way, if you don’t want to bid on an item, you can also make a donation on the auction site. Thank you for supporting the Dem Clubs’ efforts!
Take care of yourselves, stay involved, and stay well.
