Iowa has national notoriety for its caucuses in presidential election years. Caucus goers select a favored candidate in these first in the nation caucuses. But caucuses have other purposes, and Iowa Democrats hold caucuses every year in every county. Winneshiek County Democrats held their caucus on Thursday, March 30th, 7:30 PM at the UCC Fellowship Hall. 
The platform, which was approved at the 2016 County Convention, was discussed and people offered amendments to add to, subtract from, or improve a plank. People may view the platform here
Following the close of the caucus, the new Central Committee members held a brief organizational meeting to elect County officers. Elected were Matt Tapscott, Chairperson; Nathan Thompson, Vice- Chairperson; Boyd Wasson, Treasurer; Carl Haakenstad, Recording Secretary; and Barb Dale, Correspondence Secretary.
