Where We Go Now?
We had so many attending our meeting Jan. 22 at Montrose Library–in the rain, no less–we think we broke our meeting attendance records! Almost 70 people attended and it was very stimulating, with “Where Do We Go From Here?” by Patty Horton from Congressman Adam Schiff’s office.
As the past few weeks have shown us, we, as Democrats and concerned citizens, face some very dramatic challenges with this bizarre Republican administration and radical Congress. In order to meet these challenges, our Club Board has proposed, based on Patty’s insights, that members could develop Action Teams to work in the following areas:
- Adopt a Red district (phoning, letter writing, working with other Clubs to target vulnerable Republican congresspersons)
- Affordable Healthcare/Medicare
- Environment/Climate Change
- Unfair Taxes
- Social Security
In addition there is a need for
- a Letters to the Editor Team
- Club Representatives to Federal and State Legislator offices
- a Social Media monitoring Team
We can assemble into these Action Teams at the Meeting on Feb. 26. We will have sign-ups and some time for discussion.
To join an action team now or if you need more info or direction, please contact the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org
