MONTAGUE — Mark Wisnewski was unanimously elected as chair of the Montague Democratic Town Committee.

Wisnewski succeeds long-time committee leader Jay DiPucchio who decided not to seek re-election this year. “I want to continue to run this Committee in the same efficient manner it has been run for years and increase Democratic influence and engagement in our local and state politics.” Wisnewski said in a meeting Thursday.

In addition, Al Cummings and Christopher Boutwell were re-elected to the positions of vice chair and treasurer respectively. During the same meeting, delegates were elected to represent Montague at the 2018 State Democratic Convention. Elected as delegates were Elizabeth Irving, Anne Jemas, Mathew Lord, Steve Winters and Francia Wisnewski. Elected as alternates are Jay DiPucchio, Sita Lang and Cynthia Tarail.

The committee also voted to support a motion titled “The Unity Reform Commission” which calls upon the Massachusetts Democrats to change the manner in which “super” delegates are allotted. It calls for an increase in transparency and inclusion in the delegate process. The motion passed unanimously.
