There are All Sorts of Events During the Next Few Days!

  	Hi, everybody!    	Are you going to watch the debates tonight and tomorrow?  I know I am!  And I have a feeling that I'll come away from the debates  feeling pretty proud about the quality of our candidates, compared to the embarrassing child in the White House.  The start of these debates  is motivating many people in Florida to ask how they can get involved to help turn Florida blue in 2020.  Below I'll tell you about some of the  events in our area and how you can get involved as well.     	We must register as many new Democrats as we can during the next year.  Andrew Gillum has set a goal of registering one million new  voters in Florida.  We continue to do our part in West Broward.  With the help of Michael Goldfarb, Jonathan Potts, Laurie Stark, Marsha  Eisenberg, Lauren Tate, and Lonnie Supnick, we collected 10 voter registration forms (9 Dems and 1 Rep!) and 95 medicaid expansion  petitions at the West Regional Courthouse this week!     	Here are some of the events and voter registration and petition collection activities going on this week.    	1.  There are watch parties tonight and tomorrow night in Broward County and in Miami, including one hosted by Andrew Gillum.  Check out  the times and locations of some of these at the Broward Democratic Party website:    	2.  John Ziegler needs your help on Saturday at the West Regional Library.  John's teams are there from 10 AM to 6 PM in four 2-hour shifts.  If you would like to volunteer for one of these shifts, please contact John Ziegler at 954-232-3918 or    	3.  Also on Saturday, June 29th, there will be  an Area 5 Meet and Greet for precinct committee people who live in Plantation, Sunrise,  Lauderdale Lakes, and Lauderhiil, at the Lauderhill Towne Center Library, 6399 W. Oakland Park Blvd., in Lauderhill from 3 to 5 PM.  If you would  like to bring something to share, please call Ellen Moltz at 954-548-9411 and let her know what you are bringing.    	4.  Also on Saturday evening, June 29th, from 6 to 8 PM at Flamingo Park, 12855 NW 8th St., in Sunrise, Bring It Home Florida is sponsoring  The Longest Table, a free community engagement dinner to build new relationships and discuss how to get involved and stay engaged in the  political process.  If you want to attend or volunteer, contact Jelani Harvey, President of the Greater Sunrise Democratic Club at  Bring your family and friends for a free event with great food and conversation.  But be sure to sign up soon.  There are a limited number of seats left:    	5.  I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse on Monday July 1st, from 10 AM until 2 PM. As always, we will have our canopy to protect  us from the sun and/or rain.  I do need help at 10 and at 2 to set up and then take down the canopy.  We will also have our table and chairs to make  our outdoor office as comfortable as possible.  If you can join me, be sure to bring a cap and a bottle of water.  I will have all the forms we will need.  Please let me know of you can join me.  (PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL NOT BE AT THE COURTHOUSE ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 3RD.)    	6.  Also on Monday, July 1st, there will be a Voter Registration and Petition Training session at the Broward Democratic Party office, 8320  W. Sunrise Blvd., Suite 203, in Plantation at 7 PM.
