Want Transparency? Try Ohio Or Pennsylvania Or Michigan Or...

PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY - 7/6/16
Notice the gentleman with his wife in the above photo? His name is Dean Feldmeyer, a Methodist Minister, who is running as the Democratic candidate for Clinton County Commissioner -- in Ohio, that is.
Besides reading Dean's story at the Ohio CC Dems website you can easily find the email address for the party.
I've been searching via Google for the email address for the Clinton County NY Democratic Party/Committee. No go. But the Clinton County Democratic Parties in Pennsylvania, Iowa, Michigan and Indiana each list email info.
All for CCDP/C New York all I could find was a Facebook page. No email so I tried Facebook Messenger, submitting a series of questions pertaining to secret ballots and weighted voting, issues that reared their ugly heads during the party's selection process for an Area 4 candidate. The questions were sent on June 12th. No answer.
Contacting a political party shouldn't be so difficult. The local Dems offer a fill-in-the-form box. No thanks. I don't want my email to disappear into the void like FB Messenger. And I get enough spam, thank you.
Other Dem websites offer both fill-in fields and the email address. A choice.
Also those other state Dems have homepages. Easy to find. Even the super-secretive National Security Agency (NSA) has a website: https://www.nsa.gov/ . Why the opaqueness, Clinton County NY Dems?
I've spent more than enough time trying to ferret out the CCDP/C email address with search keywords such as "Clinton County NY Democratic Party." There's something wrong when CC Dems in other states are easier to contact than the local ones. Transparency anyone?
BTW, if you want to contact me: luketbush[at]gmail[dot]com . That wasn't hard, was it?
