Subject: One Election Down, One to Go!

    Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!  I still have not stopped giving thanks for the amazingly good results on November 6th.  Let me again thank you for everything you did to make that happen!    But now you have to do more.  You see, we have one more election coming up, which is hugely important to every Democrat in Broward County.  The Reorganizational Meeting of the Broward Democratic Party, also known as the Broward County Democratic Executive Committee, has been set for Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 1:30 PM at Diamantes, located at 6501 W. Commercial Blvd. in Tamarac.  The only purpose of this meeting is the election of officers, including the Chair and other officers.Cynthia Busch, Broward’s Area 6 Leader and Vice President of the Plantation Democratic Club, has announced her candidacy for Chair of the Party, and I enthusiastically endorse and support her in this election.  I have worked with Cynthia for over ten years in local and national election campaigns.  Together, we have registered thousands of new voters in Broward County, helped to put on the ballot and then pass the Fair Districts Amendments, collected hundreds of absentee ballot requests, campaigned for national and local Democratic Party leaders and candidates, and knocked on the doors of thousands of Broward County voters to get out the vote.  Cynthia is one of the hardest working volunteers in Broward County, whether the work is for the Plantation Democratic Club, Awake Broward, the Broward Democratic Party, or Organizing for America’s campaign to re-elect Barack Obama.  Just like the example set by Bill Kling, the sorely-missed former President of the Plantation Club, Cynthia has NEVER let her ego get in the way of doing what is best for the Democratic Party; she never thinks that she is too good or too important or too busy to personally participate in the kinds of effective grassroots activities mentioned above!

To see more about why Cynthia Busch is the perfect person for this position, please click on the following link:

As Rick Hoye, the President of the Broward Young Democrats, has said:  “We need leadership that fosters grassroots efforts and motivates activists to go the extra mile and understands the importance of delegating and holding others accountable by clearly defined duties.  Indeed, we as a party will be stronger if collectively we know what our roles are and what is expected of us all.”  Cynthia Busch will provide such leadership and will help to revitalize the Broward Democratic Party.  IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE!  CYNTHIA BUSCH IS THE CHANGE WE NEED!

The only people eligible to vote in this election are those precinct committee members who were elected (including those who ran unopposed) in the August 14, 2012 Democratic Primary Election.  A precinct committee member, who for any reason, is unable to attend the Reorganizational Meeting, may execute a written proxy to designate another Democrat residing in the same precinct to vote on their behalf.  The proxy must be sworn to before a Notary Public or validated by two registered Democrats signing as witnesses, and the written proxy must be submitted to the Chair before the meeting is called to order.  (I have proxy forms for any precinct committee member who is unable to attend the meeting.)

(And, yes, I do plan on running with Cynthia to be one of the officers, and I am asking for your vote as well.)

So please make note of the time and place of this election:  Sunday, December 9, 2012.  The meeting is scheduled for 1:30 PM and pre-registration will start at  12:30 PM.  The location is Diamantes at 6501 W. Commercial Blvd., in Tamarac (on the north side of Commercial east of University Drive and just west of NW 64th Avenue.)

Call or write if you have any questions.  And, thank you for your support!
