Spring 2017 Internship Opportunities with MCDC

An excellent opportunity to make connections and gain valuable experience in politics. 

Summary: As an organization, the Monroe County Democratic Committee exists to provide multiple levels of support to National, State, and local Democratic campaigns for public office. In addition, MCDC seeks to play a meaningful role in communities across Monroe County, and as such is active in many non-partisan efforts to better our community. Along with day-to-day tasks, our interns are able to take on roles specific to many of the different aspects of campaign work, ranging from voter targeting and outreach to fundraising, finance, and accounting.

Anyone interested in an internship should contact Joseph Burgess at 585-232-2410 or Joseph@Monroedemocrats.com with a brief resume and a cover letter or note indicating if you are more interested in (1) Voter Outreach and Field or (2) Finance and Accounting, and why.

A message from Brighton Democratic Committee Leader Daniel Aman

The night before the Election was full of a level of excitement and optimism that seems foreign today.  Many of us are still reeling from the results of the General Election last week.  Amidst the despair that so many are feeling right now, it is very important to not lose sight of the fact that we had a successful night at the local level.

Chuck Schemer and Louise Slaughter will be going back to Congress to represent us and along with Kirsten Gellibrand, I don’t know that there is a better trio of representatives anywhere in the nation.

While he may have been unopposed, Assembly Majority Leader Morelle is going back to Albany to continue to Fight for Brighton.

Adam Bello’s election as County Clerk was a huge step forward for Monroe County.  Adam has shown tremendous integrity since he was appointed and has raised the bar for all County officials.

Brighton’s own John Falk will be back on the bench in Town Court and continuing to bring a fair and impartial approach to individuals standing in his courtroom.

Not all of our candidates won their races, but working together, we helped deliver Brighton to every single one of them, and that is something else that you can be proud of.

As I said in my email to the Committee last week, you all had a very busy year, but now it is time to start getting ready for Election Day 2017.  Our next meeting is this Monday night in the Multi-Purpose Room at Brookside at 7pm and I hope you will be able to attend.
