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.

Drinking Liberally this Wednesday

Hope everyone enjoyed Memorial Day and are thankful to all those who served.

The GOP field continues to grow. It is always interesting to see how candidates attack each other then come together and play nice once the primary is over. Also make note of the ideology shift pre primary to post. They all seem to try to be the most right during the primary then shift to a more moderate position. It does get confusing to know where they truly stand on issues with all the grandstanding.

Meanwhile, the Democratic pool remains small. Is that an advantage to the Dems?

Come to Drinking Liberally this Wednesday at the Turtle Tavern on 72 Main St., in Milford anytime from 6:30 on.

You're Chapter Leaders,
