Tongass Democrats and Friends,
I hope you’re all staying healthy and safe during these confusing and unprecedented times. For those I have not had the chance to meet yet – my name is Edric Carrillo. I serve as the Chair of the Tongass Democrats, the regional party organization for Juneau, Gustavus, Haines, Klukwan, and Skagway.
I am reaching out to remind you about our Virtual Caucus happening tomorrow from 4 – 6 pm, and to explain how you can participate. Continue reading
I know that today is Easter, so I hope that the Christians among us have a Happy Easter. Regardless of whether today is a major religious event for you, though, I hope it is a lovely day and that the fledgling Spring weather stays around.

Good Morning Tongass Democrats and Friends,
We hope you are practicing good hygiene and social distancing during these confusing and unprecedented times. Lets continue to flatten the curve, check on friends and neighbors, and make sure our mental health doesn’t get forgotten. With these new challenges comes new processes – we’re still working our State convention but here are a couple of changes you should be aware of. Please read through and let us know if you have any questions!
We have a lot of new information this month:
- Changes in the Alaska Presidential Primary Process (mail-in ballots due April 10)
- Virtual Democratic Caucuses for House Districts 33, 34, 35, 36 (April 18, 4 to 6pm)
- National Convention (July 13-16) Delegate Nomination
- Sign-at-Home Recall Dunleavy Petition
In order to do our part to flatten the curve, Tongass Democrats Chair Edric Carrillo has canceled the April business meeting that would have been held next week.
As a reminder, the Bartlett-Gruening Dinner has also been indefinitely postponed for the same reason.
A few coronavirus bits & bobs under the fold for you. Continue reading
In order to do our part to flatten the curve, Tongass Democrats Chair Edric Carrillo has indefinitely postponed our main annual fundraiser, the Bartlett-Gruening Dinner.
Tickets to the dinner are typically $100, and proceeds from this event have funded many candidates across the state in past years. Your donation now would be extremely meaningful for efforts to elect Democrats to the State Legislature, as well as those running up-ticket.
Please consider visiting our Act Blue donation page and making a donation.
