The Chemung County Democratic Committee is pleased to announce an Open House for the opening of their new Civic Education Center (CEC) at 4:00 PM on Monday, June 7.
This new and exciting project at 110 N. Main St. in downtown Elmira is in full alignment with the Committee’s stated goal to “strengthen the community by connecting citizens to the political process through voter outreach and education.”
Chemung County Democratic Chair, Dora Leland explained, “Our committee is excited for the opening of the Civic Education Center. We want to educate people, especially young people, about the responsibilities and opportunities for civic engagement in Chemung County. It’s a fantastic opportunity to interact with the community, increase civic education and awareness, and empower citizens with resources. The Civic Education Center will do just that. We are committed to creating a space for civil discussion.”
