Make a Donation and Come to the Rally on Sunday

     
    Hi, Democrats!

    The latest insane action taken by Donald Trump crosses so many lines, it’s just unbelievable!  He has revoked the security clearance of John Brennan, the former director of the CIA.  He did this not because of any illegality or threat to national security, but only because Brennan has been a frequent critic of the President.  Responding to the revocation of his security clearance, Brennan wrote that this attempt to suppress freedom of speech “should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out.”

    And speaking of speaking out, have you noticed the silence of Republicans all through each and every embarrassing action that Trump takes?  John McCain, Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, and sometimes Susan Collins seem to be the only Republican Senators who call out the President for his misdeeds.  Every other Republican Senator or candidate who is running for a Senate seat in the Mid-Term Election on November 6th has said nothing.  By not speaking out, these Republicans enable the President and everything he does.  Democrats must point out that the inaction of these Republican is harmful to our country.  Democrats must point out that by supporting Trump, they are not worthy of being elected or re-elected to the Senate.

    So, the time has come again for all of us to make a contribution to the campaigns of the Democrats in tough races for the Senate, starting with our own Bill Nelson, right here in Florida:  https://secure.actblue.com/donate/nelson_search?refcode=ads_google_fl_search  Think about all of the harm to the Federal Judiciary we can help prevent if the Democrats can retake the Senate!  Here are some of the other campaigns you can help with:
        Claire McCaskill (Missouri) – https://secure.actblue.com/donate/mccaskill-d2d?refcode=ads_google_nat_d2d
        Joe Donelly (Indiana) – https://secure.actblue.com/donate/donate-primary-web
        Jacky Rosen (Nevada) – https://secure.actblue.com/donate/rosen-homepage?refcode=websitenew
        Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota) – https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/hh4nd
        Phil Bredesen (Tennessee) – https://www.bredesen.com/

    Early voting begins on Saturday, August 18th.  On that same day, you can knock on neighbors’ doors (https://events.mobilizeamerica.io/browardcountydems/event/10451/) or make phone calls (https://events.mobilizeamerica.io/browardcountydems/event/10445/) to help get out every single Democratic voter.

   
On Sunday, August 19th, from 2 to 4 PM, there will be a “Stronger Together” Rally to get out the vote at the Sunrise Civic Center Theater at 10610 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Sunrise, sponsored by many Democratic clubs, including the Plantation Democratic Club.  (Check out the flyer below.) Almost all of the candidates who will be on the August and November Ballots are planning to attend including Congressman Alcee Hastings, Senator Bill Nelson, gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Jeff Greene, Chris King, and Phil Levine, candidates for Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried and Roy David Walker, candidates for Attorney General Sean Shaw and Ryan Torrens, Chief Financial Officer Jeremy Ring, candidates for State Representative in District 97 Jared Moskowitz and Imtiaz Ahmed Mohammad, candidates for State Representative in District 98 Andrew Dolberg, Michael Gottlieb, Elaine Geller, Stephen Korka, and Danny Stallone, and School Board candidates Laurie Rich Levinson and Donna Korn.  The doors will open at 1:30.  Come early, don’t miss out!  And you can even vote after the Rally!

    We had a great day at the Courthouse yesterday, collecting 11 voter registration forms, 13 vote-by-mail requests, and 51 universal background check demands.  Many thanks to the awesome volunteers who came out, including Lauren Tate, Joseph Russel, Marsha Eisenberg, and John Countryman!

    I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse on Monday and Wednesday, August 20th and 22nd from 10 AM to 2 PM to register more voters and collect requests to vote-by-mail.  Let me know if you can help out on those days.

Can You Join Us Tomorrow Night and Again on Sunday?

    Good evening, everybody!

    I guess it’s true that Donald Trump only hired the best people.  They are either being tried, have plead guilty, or are at war with him!

    I want to thank our wonderful volunteers for helping with voter registration last Wednesday and today:  Bob Horland, Jocelyn Wills, Marsha Eisenberg, Joseph Russel, Lauren Tate, Marcia Kirshner, and Norman Levy.  We registered 15 voters, collected 11 vote-by-mail requests, and 106 universal background check demands.  October 9th is the last day to register to vote on the November Mid-Term Election.  So join us during the next two months to make this a very successful election for Democrats.

    Here’s some of what’s going in during the next week:

    1.  Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 14th, the Plantation Democratic Club will have its next meeting at 7 PM at the Deicke Auditorium, 5701 Cypress Road in Plantation.  The Club will host Plantation City Council candidates, Eric Anderson, Errol Brown, Richard Cabrera, Denise Horland, and Nick Sortal, and candidates for State Representative in District 98, Andrew Dolberg, Elaine Geller, Michael Gottlieb, Stephen Korka, and Daniel Stallone.  As always, refreshments will be served.

    2.  On Wednesday, August 15th, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse to register voters from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Please let me know of you can join me.

    3.  On Wednesday afternoon, at 5:30, there will be a fundraising event for Andrew Gillum at his Campaign Office, 4325 W. Sunrise Blvd. in Plantation.  Come out and show your support for his candidacy!

    4.  And at 7 PM on Wednesday, for those who live in Jacaranda Lakes, the three Jacaranda Lakes residents who are running for Plantation City Council seats, Erik Anserson, Denise Horland, and Nick Sortal, will appear at the next Jacaranda Lakes Neighbors-for-Neighbors meeting.  The location of this event is the Volunteer Park Community Center, 12050 W. Sunrise Blvd. in Plantation

    5.  Early voting begins on Saturday, August 18th.

   
6.  On Sunday, August 19th, from 2 to 4 PM, there will be a “Stronger Together” Rally to get out the vote at the Sunrise Civic Center Theater at 10610 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Sunrise.   The incredible Barbara Effman is coordinating this event which is being sponsored by a dozen different Democratic clubs.  Almost all of the candidates who will be on the August and November Ballots are planning to attend including Congressman Alcee Hastings, Senator Bill Nelson, gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Jeff Greene, Chris King, and Phil Levine, candidates for Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried and Roy David Walker, candidates for Attorney General Sean Shaw and Ryan Torrens, Chief Financial Officer Jeremy Ring, candidates for State Representative in District 97 Jared Moskowitz and Imtiaz Ahmed Mohammad, candidates for State Representative in District 98 Andrew Dolberg, Michael Gottlieb, Elaine Geller, Stephen Korka, and Danny Stallone, and School Board candidates Laurie Rich Levinson and Donna Korn.  The doors will open at 1:30.  Come early, don’t miss out!  And you can even vote after the Rally!

At the end we will all raise our arms up to the sky, hand in hand, to show love to our wildlife, water, beaches, Mother Nature and one another. Join us in our peaceful movement.

VI. Save the Date Sunday, Aug 26 – Sept 4
This could be one of the most significant events this summer – the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has just been scheduled for Sept. 4. Kavanaugh would rule against reproductive freedom, health care, the environment, voting rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant rights for generations. Democratic senators including Sen. Nelson have asked for more information and this event may not occur on August 26, it might occur on Sept 4 or even Labor Day. It may be a last minute event. President Trump who has appointed the most corrupt administration in our history and is under a cloud of suspicion for being a traitor should not appoint a supreme court judge.

Sorry, Meant to Include This

    I meant to include the following notice about Jackie Braun’s great team in Hollywood in my email blast.  If you live in that neck of the woods, please join her!

    Alan

    I have been asked to share activities from southeastern Broward.  Our group, Team Awesome, works from the courthouse in Hollywood.  It seems as if there is a surge of interest in one’s registration status as our numbers have increased dramatically.  In the last two weeks combined, we have collected 84 voter registrations, 18 vote-by-mail requests, and 86 Universal Background Check demands.  Broward Rocks!

This is the Funniest and Scariest Video You Will Watch Today!

    Good afternoon, friends!

    It’s less than 100 days until the Mid-Term Elections, so there’s no time to waste.  You should be attending meetings and trainings, making phone calls, knocking on doors, and registering voters whenever you can.  We have to get out the vote this year like our lives depend upon it, BECAUSE THEY DO!  At the West Regional Courthouse yesterday, Bob Horland, Marsha Eisenberg, and Michele Cabrera helped to collect 6 voter registration forms, 8 vote-by-mail requests, and 61 universal background check demands.  Many thanks to each of them!

    Don’t forget:  If you have received your absentee ballot but don’t want to mail it back, you can give it to me and I will personally deliver it to the SOE Office.  Just call when you want to drop it off, and make sure that my wife or I are at home.

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 8th, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse (Pine Island & Broward) from 10 AM to 2 PM to register voters and sign people up to vote by mail.  Please let me know if you can join me;

    On Friday, August 10th, at 6 PM, there will be a celebration of the life and advocacy of a dear friend and President of the Democratic Black Caucus, Janet Burnett.  Janet passed away on July 27th after a long battle with cancer.  This event will take place at the Sunrise Village Civic Center, 6800 Sunset Strip in Sunrise (east of University Drive.)  Hope you can join us.

    The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) is having its Annual Convening from Thursday, August 9th to Saturday, August 11th at the Rosen Center in Orlando.  Among the people the organization will be honoring on Saturday night at its Champions of Change Gala & Awards Ceremony are Howard Simon, the retiring Executive Director of the ACLU of Florida, and me, an almost retired attorney and grassroots activist.  For more information, follow this link:  https://floridarrc.com/convening/?ms_aff=FL&initms_aff=FL&ms=180723_2018_FRRC_Convening_&initms=180723_2018_FRRC_Convening_&ms_chan=eml&initms_chan=eml;

    On Monday and Wednesday, August 13th and 15th, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse (Pine Island & Broward) from 10 AM to 2 PM to register voters and sign people up to vote by mail.  In addition to our large canopy to protect us from the sun and/or rain and our table and chairs, we now have a fan loaned to us by Marcia Kirshner, to help with the heat.  Don’t worry if you have never done voter registration before.  It is very easy and rewarding!  Please let me know which days you can join me.
