DL this Wednesday

Don't forget to come to Drinking Liberally this Wednesday.

Question, should we be happy about Donald Trump in the Presidential race? On one hand it would be good for the Democrats because he would most likely be attacking the GOP and cause much chaos and dissention. On the other hand if people actually vote for him what does that say about the intelligence, or lack thereof, of the American people?

I wonder what other countries think of us looking at the collection of prospective candidates and of course the Donald.

let's commiserate together while we raise a glass and ponder these topics.

Your Chapter Leaders,

Many town caucuses happened these past weeks. I am not sure about your town but in Milford it was a low turnout. This year the convention will be on issues as it is not a major election year. There was time after the caucus to discuss the state of political engagement at the national and state level. We discussed how to get more people involved, more youth involved and what are the ways to effectively campaign today. We did not come up with many answers but did open up the dialogue.

As we approach the next election cycle we should ask ourselves how do we get people excited and engaged in the election process so we have good people elected who care about real advocacy on behalf of all of us. An elected official who is able to keep power balanced between corporations and "the people" so everyone has a seat at the table.

This may be a tall order but we have to start somewhere. We can begin by coming to the Turtle Tavern on Main St. in Milford this Wednesday from 6:30 on. Hope springs eternal.
