Dear Elected official/Friend/Supporter:

As you may know, the City of Lowell has been selected to host the 2023 Massachusetts Democratic Platform and Agenda Convention at the Paul E. Tsongas Arena on Saturday September 23, 2023. Area members of the Democratic State Committee and other activists have worked hard to bring the Convention back to the Lowell area again for the ninth time since 2000.

The convention is more than a recognition of our region’s rich political, industrial and immigrant history – It is also another opportunity in which to highlight our region and market Lowell as a destination city to thousands of opinion leaders and decision makers across Massachusetts and our country.

In order to help make Lowell 2023 a great state party convention, we are seeking generous area individuals, businesses and local Democratic Committees as sponsors to contribute and support these efforts. We hope you, your business or your committee will consider being a sponsor and partner. There are many activities planned in Lowell on the day of the convention, including, but not limited to the following:

Welcome Breakfasts
Shuttle buses and a transportation loop for the convention delegates
Advertising and promotion throughout the city and convention areas
Post Convention Reception at the Tsongas Center on Saturday

Contributions can be made payable to the Greater Merrimack Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMVCVB) for the convention and related activities, and mailed to: GMVCVB, PO Box 8370, Lowell, MA 01853. Every donation helps us reach our goal to host a successful convention. All business sponsors, individuals and town committee chairs will be listed as members of the Lowell Area Host Committee.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting our efforts. The 2023 Massachusetts Democratic Platform Convention is yet another opportunity for Greater Lowell and the entire Merrimack Valley to shine. We are grateful for your continued partnership in support of Democrats throughout the Commonwealth and beyond, and look forward to the work ahead, together.

Curtis Lemay, State Committee Member
Marie Sweeney, State Committee Member
