I’m excited about the future for the first time in a long time. There is a lot of work to do but people are waking up. Let’s help shake them out of the fog.
We did it. We all had a part of defeating SB5 in Ohio. They could not have done it alone without organized labor from around America. If you know a union member tell them thank you! You also helped to defeat the Personhood referendum in Mississippi. Do not think for one minute they could have done it by themselves. Things change when its necessary. People come together when the balance is so out of whack and the folks in charge turn there back on the people, lots of people.
These are just two examples of why the Caucuses are so important. This is the year to strengthen and focus the Democratic Platform for Nevada and the nation. What ever your political hot button (collective bargaining, voter fraud, voter registration, defining personhood-corporations and embryos, corporate welfare, wars, water rights, jobs, healthcare, education…) the caucus is where you can have a strong voice.
If you want to carry your voice all the way to the Democratic National Convention by serving as a delegate at the County, State and National Conventions the process starts at the Precinct Caucuses.
Douglas County Democrats are planning five Caucus Trainings before the January 21, 2012 caucuses. When dates are firm we’ll spread the word. Watch your email or check the website douglasdems.org.
