CCD Meeting notes 9.4.19

9.4.19

Call to order 6:00 PM

Introduction of members

Introduction of our speaker, Michael McCord

Local official Reports-

Mitch Greenwald-

Because Democrats have core values, which are his, he asks for our support.  He has learned a lot about whom he and we are.  He stresses that we will need to work hard to GOTV.  He asks us to help him canvass before the Primary, which is in early October.

Senator Kahn- This month we have a veto session in legislature 9/18 & 19  53 bills have been vetoes so far.  This is a big number. Mort=re than double what any governor has done before. If there are bills that are of concern to us, please contact Jay and let hi know what your exact concerns are. Bi-Partisan commission has been vetoed and will create a problem in our next election, environmental bills, and women’s protective health title 10 issues. The budget cutting business taxes, funding schools, and property taxes all these with lower revenue projections were wrong.  We will be short on all of this.  There will be budget shavings. The governor has not given us any indication of where these cuts will be.  That budget was built on 6 months of public testimony and should not be undone in 3 weeks of back room talks.  Question n census. If the ward lines are set before   2010 1000 people were moved to different wards.  This would diminish votes in specific wards and is a real concern.

Winchester-Ann Goodrich Baan- The Pickle festival will be 9/28.  She would encourage all of us to and especially the organizers.

Rindge- Jeff Tickler  New committee.  9.22 will be at next meeting 4:00 Fitzwater center at FPU Craig Thompson will be speaking, also a speaker will be discussing GOTV We need to message more than anything.  He would be happy to discuss doing a messaging campaign with anyone.  Climate change, Health care, it could just be the information not a specific candidate.  We need to stand up for our rights.
