Hi to All,
I hope everyone’s summer has been healthy and relaxing. We’ve all been sitting things out for a while, but as the end of summer approaches, I feel the need to call us all together once again, to discuss what’s going one, and to decide what pressing issues need attention.
In June, we presented our Draft Resolution for an amendment to the constitution to reverse the effects of the Citizens United Supreme Court Case, and I am happy to report, in case you have not heard, that our resolution was adopted, unanimously, by the Sullivan County Legislature. So, everyone who participated in this multi-month effort deserves thanks for the effort you put into it.
Some of us have been working for the Organizing for America campaign, not only to support President Obama, but to put our weight behind the candidate running in District 19, Julian Schreibman, who has been endorsed by Maurice Hinchey. You may or may not agree, and you may or may not be at the point where you want to participate in this campaign, but we should have a discussion about it.
MoveOn, nationally, is supporting the Obama campaign, so I would like to call a meeting for sometime in the next week or two for us to get together and talk. My next two weeks are pretty full, so I guess at this point that means we are looking at the last week of August, beginning on August 27. Please let me know if that date works for you, and if not, please suggest an alternate time, so we can narrow down a date that most of you will be able to make.
