Exciting Plans for 2013 and 2014

It’s been a good start to 2013 for the Team Democrat Political Action Committee. Our January 19th annual meeting was well attended – you may have seen Larry Riley’s column, which described our actions related to values of transparency and inclusiveness. 

The January 19th meeting  featured election of new Board members and lively discussion of activities for the upcoming year.  New Board members are Judith Roepke, Victoria Rose, and Jason Waters.  They will replace Ann Reagan, Charlotte Shepperd, and Mike Sullivan, who plan to remain active. Anne will lead our fundraising effort.

What was great about the meeting and actions since, is our effort to bring together ideas, networking skills, and contact lists to start recruiting candidates for the 2014 Primary Election of members to the Democrat Precinct Committee. We hope to recruit candidates so that new members to the Democrat Precinct Committee better represent Team Democrat PAC values.

Now here’s the really exciting part – Mucie Councilwoman Linda Gregory has agreed to lead the recruiting effort.  In true Linda style, she wants to make the process as open and inclusive as possible.  The first step will take place the first Saturday in April.

Date:                     April 6
Time:                     9:00 a.m.
Where:                 Murpha Shrine Club
                             3222 East McGalliard
Why then:           The Shriner’s have a great all-you-can-eat breakfast at 8:30.

Filing for the precinct offices will begin in late January 2014…so it’s not too early to start this effort. If you cannot come on April 6, contact Linda Gregory if you have suggestions for candidates or want to work on the precinct recruitment committee.  Linda can be reached at
