MONTVILLE, NJ -- Montville Township Democrats enjoyed a festive afternoon with fellow Democrats and local party candidates at the Aug. 12 Morris County Democratic Committee barbecue in the Montville Community Park.

Chip Robinson, Morris County Democratic Committee Chairman, encouraged Democrats to “seize the moment,” adding that many voters are expressing despair at the 2016 election outcome, resulting in “a record number of Democratic write-ins in June 2017 for local office all across the county, with a Morris County Democratic turnout matching Republican turnout in the county—something unheard of in many years.”

Due to the Rosh Hoshanah holiday, Montville Township Democrats will meet on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7:00 p.m. at the Senior House at 356 Main Road/Route 202.
