MoveOn meeting, August 29, @ 6:30

Hello to all,

Based on the responses I received, it seems that Wed., Aug 29 is the best date for a meeting. So I’m going to call it: 6:30 p.m. at my house (a little early for Marilyn, a little late for Padma, but a compromise). We have a date set for an event with Larry Parham of Citizen Action, to see the film “Priceless” about campaign finance reform and have some discussion, on September 19 at the Ted Stroehble Center in Monticello. So we need to plan publicity for that.

We will have a little ice cream/frozen yogurt refreshments, coupons sent by Ben and Jerry’s as a thank you for the work we did on the resolution (part of their “get the dough out” campaign), which I just received today with a little note.

Also, please be aware that Thomas Brown is leading a very vigorous recruitment campaign for voter registration and supporters of Obama in November, and perhaps even more importantly, to build support for Julian Schreibman, the progressive Democrat who is running for 19th District and has been endorsed by Maurice Hinchey. Schreibman will have a tough fight against Chris Gibson, the Republican incumbent whose district was melded into Maurice’s district.

The OFA team will be at my house this week, Mon-Thurs, from 4:30 till about 7:30 or so, to canvass in Liberty and build as much support as possible. Anyone is welcome to join us, get out in a walk around one of Liberty’s neighborhoods, meet some of the folks here and talk about what’s important to them. My house serves as a base, and we’ll wind up with debriefing and refreshments. If you have any questions, be sure to email me, or give me a quick call (393 4895).

Thanks, and I hope I see some of you this week, and all of you on the 29th.

(Kathie Aberman)

A message from Kathie A.

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.
Thanks,
Kathie

MoveOn Sullivan’s petition to support the Consitutional Amendment overturning ‘Citizen’s United’

June 21, 2012

Sullivan County Legislature meeting.

ImageToday, at least seven members of MoveOn.org Sullivan (NY) presented a petition to the Sullivan county legislature in Monticello NY, for a ‘resolution’ to Overturn the ‘Citizens United’ Supreme court decision. Kathie Aberman introduced our Petition, describing the MoveOn.org , Public Citizen’s movement since last January to overturn this decision and get money out of politics, and, as our draft resolution said,

1) A corporation is not a person and can be regulated

2) Money is not speech and can be regulated, and

Ending with, “The judiciary shall not construe the spending of money to influence elections to be speech under the First Amendment.”

The proposed ‘draft’ resolution was presented by; Kathie Aberman, Robert Dorn, Padma Dyvine, Marshall Rubin, Chet Carlin, Priscilla Bassett, Thomas Brown, Marilyn Valant, Mary Ann Burke, Mary Ellen Boyd, Catherine Rivas, Harris Alic, James Clark, Kristina Williams and several hundred petitioners, residents of Sullivan County.

Some members were unable to be present and others read their statements supporting this.

Several of us were interviewed and photographed by local media, and a special group portrait was taken with Cora Edwards, one of the 9 Legislators present.
