OPEN FORUM - And Looking Forward to 2015!

Well, now that we have all weathered and survived the election, it is time once more, to gather together and vent our grievances…This November’s meeting is all about YOU!!!

This is your chance to shine, scream, cry or just mingle with friends at our monthly meeting this Saturday.

It will be an Open Forum for everyone to speak! Your officers have all agreed that the voices of the hard-working, door-knocking, phone-calling Democrats in HD 9 are critical and we're anxious to hear from all of you!

Bring yourself and your concerns, hopes for the New Year and 2016 and topics you wish to discuss. An entire hour of the meeting will be dedicated to YOU with a Comment and Followup format, followed by a brief 20 minute exercise geared to mend your woes and sorrows, presented by Halisi Vinson. She has graciously agreed to help us move on and move pass this year and to look forward to 2015.

Please come and share your thoughts with a group of sympathetic and empathetic folks…our friends and fellow Democrats of HD 9!

Shawn Smith will be conducting the meeting and will act as moderator and coordinator to all your comments during the Open Forum. So – to make things run smoothly, a few rules will be necessary to follow so as to give everyone a chance to speak and be heard.

Please bring your questions or comments and limit them to one minute. Be courteous and do not interrupt each other. Accept everyone’s POV and let us be kind and exhibit grace in griping…
That’s it!

We all look forward to an exciting and stimulating meeting, the last one of 2014! Next month we will be celebrating and joining in festivities to celebrate the Holiday Season on December 6th!

Day of Action – October 25, 2014

 Bring your Cell Phones!  We will spend part of our meeting phone banking for Senator Jeanne Nicholson.  Jeanne Nicholson's Senate District 16 race is the hottest contested seat in the 2014 election.  Her opponent, Tim Neville, has vowed to reverse the gun safety laws that the Democratically controlled Senate passed in 2013.  We simply cannot lose control of the state senate and Jeanne Nicholson's seat is the key stone holding everything together.
