Some in the audience said they were sick of the committee’s “club-like” mentality.
Former town supervisor and Bethlehem Democratic Committee Vice Chairman Jack Cunningham said at the meeting he was the one who answered Smith’s email.
He said some of the information requested was not available because new district lines were recently drawn and they do not know who represents which district. Cunningham also said the committee no longer provides the names of committee people because in the past the information was used against them “by members of the community and Republicans.”
“That information is available to anyone through the Board of Elections,” he said.
After the meeting, Cunningham said the public is welcome at committee meetings despite what some in the community may believe and what Clyne previously told The Spotlight.
Cunningham said key meetings are closed so committee members can discuss strategy, but most are open to Democratic residents and the committee is always eager for more people to volunteer with the party.
