Wednesday, November 19, 7 pm @ Los Jimadores in Bedford
Hi everyone! Let me start this message by announcing the date change for our November meeting. It is being held on Wednesday(!!), November 19 due to the Thanksgiving holiday on our regular meeting week. We’ll still be meeting at Los Jimadores as usual, and the meeting kicks off at 7:00. The focus of this month’s meeting is to hear from our local Democratic Party candidates, and most of those you supported have confirmed their attendance. Please come by, give your thank you’s, hear their stories of the campaign trail, and learn how we can all work differently next time for stronger results.
In club business, I am proud to announce our lineup for of the club board for 2015. As many of you know, Shelley Morales (Secretary) and Chris Hilbert (Fundraising Chair) are retiring from club leadership, and we thank them for their time and efforts over the years they have been serving as they have been dedicated to our club and to the causes we endeavor to champion. At our October meeting, we closed nominations for all positions, and we were able to hold a vote of acclamation to confirm each role. Replacing Shelley and Chris on the board will be Marva Allums and Richard Gaca, respectively. I’m excited to work with these two amazing individuals! Closing out the board will be Sean Hayward returning as Treasurer, Gary Livingston returning as Vice President, and myself returning as President.
2015 promises to be a year of rebuilding, both for the club coffers and for progressive causes. Please make sure you’re still a member in good standing by paying you annual $20 in club dues. Links below. Also, book your calendar for Saturday, January 3 for our New Year celebration! More details to come, but we’re planning a pot luck dinner and party as part of a club re-enrollment event. Once we have a few more pieces finalized, I’ll send out a more detailed event listing, but until then, save the date as it will be a fun night!

Looking further down the road, we will be holding our Jim Wright Scholarship dinner in September. Anyone wishing to volunteer on the scholarship committee or dinner committee, please email me directly. We’d love your involvement in this wonderful cause and event!
Thank you all for an amazing year. We have our challenges to face, but as Democrats, we must hold our heads up high and keep looking ahead.
See you Wednesday.
President, Mid-Cities Democrats
