COOS COUNTY — The Coos County Democratic Committee finalized plans for their booth at the Lancaster Fair, and discussed progress organizing the annual Truman Dinner.

The Truman Dinner is one of New Hampshire’s longest running political dinners. It will be held this year on Oct. 10 at The Mountain View Grand Resort.

All Democrats (especially officers and candidates) were encouraged to register for the State Party Convention on Sept. 7 at the Southern New Hampshire University Arena in Manchester, where all candidates for president will speak.

State Rep. Wayne Moynihan explained how important the upcoming census is to Coos County.

Congressional, state Senate and House of Representative districts are determined by population.

The amount of federal funding for a number of critical services, such as fuel assistance and aid to rural health clinics, are also linked to the census.

Moynihan explained that Coos County has the lowest percentage of residents completing census forms, either online or by mail. Therefore, outreach workers will be essential to ensure that there is an accurate count.

Census 2020 is currently hiring and states that their jobs provide “great pay, flexible hours, weekly pay, and paid training.”

To apply, go online to 2020census.gov/jobs or call (855) 562-2020.

Democratic Party members are encouraged to volunteer at the Lancaster Fair booth.

Leah Garrett of the Amy Klobuchar campaign, Rylie Cooper from Kirsten Gillibrand’s campaign, Deidre Schardine from the Elizabeth Warren campaign and Donna Godin representing Tulsi Gabbard’s campaign all shared why they are passionate about the candidates they represent. All of these women come from rural towns and explained why they believe rural areas are so important in this election.

The Cos County Committee will next meet on Sept. 20 in Colebrook and the Kilkenny Committee on Sept. 16, in Lancaster.
