MCD August Social

DivisionBrewing

97 degrees, in the shade!

Let’s beat the heat and toast to the death of the bathroom bill, payroll deduction interference, and vouchers during the sham special session.

Join your MCD friends for an August social (in lieu of a business meeting) at Division Brewing in Arlington. Pizza slices are on us, but donations are gratefully accepted. Pay up, ppl.

We’ll be back at Los Jimadores in September.

See you there and bring a friend!

Tell Them: Stop the Nonsense (July Meeting)

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is afraid of a primary from Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, so he’s submitted to Patrick’s wish for a special session. Patrick wants to look inside your pants outside of public restrooms, target lifesaving healthcare from Planned Parenthood, and attack local control of our cities.

Join fellow Mid-Cities Democrats on Thursday, July 27th. We’ll have a short business meeting and get to work writing letters to our state representatives, state senators and Letters to the Editor. Mid-Cities Democrats board member and communications consultant Kathleen Thompson will lead our workshop.

We’ll also hear from Allison Campolo, Democratic candidate for Texas Senate District 10, about her bid to retire Tea Party extremist Konni Burton.

June Meeting

Women's March in Austin

With all of the bizarre craziness that the Freedom Caucus has brought to the Texas House, we are pleased to welcome three qualified, competent, and ethical candidates to join us for our June meeting.

We welcome:
Steve Riddell, running for Texas House District 92

Nancy Bean, running for Texas House District 93

Mica J. Ringo, running for Texas House District 98

Please join us in supporting your local Democratic candidates — with all of the special interest (OIL) money pouring into fringe Tea Party extremists, we need all the help we can get!

We hope to see everyone there, helping us save Texas from the downward spiral Greg Abbott and the Freedom Caucus have set in motion!

May Meeting with ACLU & Mike Collier

February2017Meeting.001

Thankfully, the Texas Legislature’s 85th session is days from ending.

This session, Republicans targeted neighborhood school children, immigrants, LGBT Texans, law enforcement officers, and more.

We’ll hear from the ACLU’s Joe Swanson about their priorities this session and we’ll hear from Mike Collier running to take out Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and the legislative session that could be if Democrats put our energy and enthusiasm to work RIGHT NOW.

See you at the meeting and bring a friend!
