Smith College Democrats Host Governor Patrick

Last weekend, the Smith Democrats hosted the annual College Democrats of Massachusetts convention, with more than 125 students from across the state. It marked the first time the statewide convention has been held in western Massachusetts. About 50 convention delegates joined Governor Deval Patrick on Sunday, April 18, for a conversation about why students should get involved with the gubernatorial campaign and remain engaged in public affairs.

On Saturday, April 17, the convention welcomed a lineup of speakers, including State Senator Ben Downing, State Senator Stan Rosenberg, State Representative Ellen Story, blogger Conor Yunits, Massachusetts Democratic Party chairman John Walsh, and candidate for State Treasurer Steve Grossman. Breakout sessions followed on topics ranging from grassroots organizing to new media.

At the CDM elections, Smith Democrats President-elect Kate Moore 12 was unanimously elected President of the College Democrats of Massachusetts.
