June 2016 General Meeting

When the leadership of the Texas Legislature focuses on pandering to a fringe base, vulnerable Texans are left behind. Texas taxpayers have already contributed to Medicaid expansion in other states through our federal taxes. Refusing $6B annually costs a lot — that’s $222 each year from every Texan.

The recent 15-month Medicaid waiver isn’t enough. It’s time for Texas to have its turn with full, expanded Medicaid. Otherwise, we pay twice.

Join fellow Mid-Cities Democrats on Thursday, June 30th. We’ll have a short business meeting and get to work writing letters to our state representative, state senator and Letters to the Editor. Mid-Cities Democrats board member and communications consultant Kathleen Thompson will lead our workshop.

May 2016 General Meeting

It’s an election year, friends!

We’ll have a short business meeting and get to work calling HD 93 voters for State Representative candidate Nancy Bean.

We’re calling friendly Democratic Primary voters, and you’ll be provided with scripts and the call list.

Nancy’s opponent is an extremist incumbent who prioritized anti-LGBT legislation in his last term. Nancy’s priorities are access to healthcare, quality education, and dignity of work and wages. What a difference a Democrat will make to HD 93!

Bring a charged cell phone and a friend! See you at Los Jims!
