Election season is upon us and the Portsmouth Democrats are bringing the community together for one of their biggest social events of the year.

At their 10th Annual Banquet on September 28th at the Portsmouth Harbor Events and Conference Center, local Democrats will have the opportunity to discuss politics with each other, to meet with many of their candidates that will be on the November 6th general election ballot, and to enjoy a delicious meal with a a cash bar that offers a variety of beer and wine, as well as a signature “Blue Hawaiian” drink (in honor of our president). Attendees will also welcome a surrogate speaker for President Obama as their Special Guest.

“This banquet serves as a fund-raiser for our local committee,” says Laurie McCray, the 1st Vice Chair of the Portsmouth Democrats, “and it also gives voters and candidates the opportunity to get together in a social setting.”

McCray adds, “The banquet is also a great opportunity to recognize and applaud the work of our community awards recipients.” The Portsmouth Democrats will present three awards this year. They are the Distinguished Democrat Award, the Chairman's Community Leadership Award, and the Jim Horrigan Community Service Award. This year the Jim Horrigan Award will be presented to the Green Alliance, a union of local sustainable businesses promoting eco-friendly business practices, and a green co-op offering discounted green products and services to its members.
