It’s that time of year again… membership dues for 2014 are now due. We know the economy is still struggling, and everybody is asking for donations, even more so in an election year. So, you ask, Where do I put my scarce dollars to make sure I get the best bang for the buck.
A fair question.
It’s an important election year, with the Governor’s office on the ballot as well as every other state and county elected position, including State legislative offices, County Executive, Council seats, State’s Attorney, Sheriff and Board of Education. It’s an important election and a lot to think about.
That’s where the New Harford Democratic Club comes in.
For the past four years, ever since the last election, your club has been preparing for this year. Seeking potential candidates, studying the issues, preparing positions and establishing a powerful Get Out The Vote campaign for this fall.
During this time we have brought to our meetings experts in various fields who have enlightened us on the important issues. We have had meaningful discussions on the Dream Act, Gay Marriage, Gun Control, and, just recently, The Storm Water Management Fee that has driven the Republicans off the deep end.
We have heard from political experts such as Herb Smith who has written a book on the history of Maryland politics and Larry Gibson who recently released his book on the young Justice Thurgood Marshal. We have had vigorous discussions on recent books about Presidents Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson.
We have had visits from many elected officials and other candidates for public office and presentations from our most politically active members on the how’s and why’s of the political game.
Simply put, membership in the New Harford Democratic Club gives you a lot of bang for the buck. And that’s important for anyone concerned about the future of our state and county. From now to November all of us will be working hard to elect Democrats. We need everyone to help out.
That’s where you come in.
The New Harford Democratic Club is on the front line in this political battle, and your continued membership is important to this effort.
