Kevin Joyce, of Randolph, recently won the election for the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee, the commonwealth’s official Democratic Party.
Joyce, serving as the chair of the Randolph Democratic Town Committee, will represent Randolph and 10 surrounding towns at state party, meetings and functions.
Two men and two women represent each state Senate District in the Democratic State Committee. Randolph’s district, the Norfolk, Bristol and Plymouth district is one of 40 state Senate Districts. Joyce becomes one of 160 elected members of the State Committee. Members normally are elected every fourth year on the presidential primary ballot, but Jeremy Comeau, the previous representative, resigned after moving out of the district, necessitating a caucus for a special election.
Joyce cited his history of union organizing in his caucus speech and promised to work on a more transparent party process.
“In Randolph, we increased the number of members of our town committee to the maximum of 35 allowed, and now we have associate members who have joined us also,” Joyce said.
Democratic State Committee members’ official duties include organizing the annual Democratic State Convention, at which Democratic nominees are selected for the primary ballot for governor, Senate and other state and federal elections.
“Kevin earned his state committee seat by attending town committee meetings in neighboring towns, including Avon, Braintree and Canton,” said Jesse Gordon, an elected member of the Randolph Democratic Town Committee. “That’s important for dealing with cross-town issues for Randolph. We now have a liaison to the political organizations of our neighbors.”
