Join Us On Tuesday Night

    Good afternoon, friends!

    History can be made on November 6, 2018.  We can help elect the first Democratic Governor of Florida in 20 years, and the first African-American Governor!  We can help Broward County do what is necessary to make sure that Andrew Gillum is elected Governor, Bill Nelson is re-elected Senator in Florida, and Amendment 4 passes to restore the right to vote to the 1.5 million Floridians with felony convictions.  And you can get involved and be a part of that effort.

    At the West Regional Courthouse yesterday, Joseph Russel, Lauren Tate, and John Countryman helped to register 10 voters (7 of them Democrats!), collect 12 vote-by-mail requests, 5 universal background check demands, and 54 pledges to vote yes on Amendment 4!

    Here’s what else is going on:

    On Saturday and Sunday, September 8th and 9th, we will be knocking on doors in east Plantation to let people know about Tuesday’s meeting at the Jim Ward Community Center, and about Andrew Gillum, Bill Nelson, and why it’s so important for everyone to vote in the Mid-Term Elections.  Please let me know if you can join us.

    On Monday and Wednesday, September 10th and 12th, 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 Tuesday, September 11th, the Plantation Democratic Club will have its monthly meeting at 7 PM at the Jim Ward Community Center 301 NW 46 Avenue in Plantation.  We will be talking about what’s going on in Washington, and what will be on the ballot.  I will be making a presentation on the Constitutional Amendments which will be on the November Ballot.  Save the date and join us!

    For those who live in Plantation, at 7 PM on Thursday, September 13th, there will be a Meet and Greet (NOT a fund-raiser) for Nick Sortal who is in the race for Plantation City Council at the home of Ryan & Maris Barth, 9343 NW 10 Street in the Enclave at Jacaranda Lakes in Plantation.  RSVP to Maria at 954-588-3982.

    My wonderful summer volunteer, Joseph Russel, will be going back to UCLA next week.  I will miss him sorely and will need help at the Courthouse on Monday and Wednesday, September 17th & 19th.  I arrive at 10 AM and leave at 2 PM and I need help putting up and taking down the canopy.  So please let me know if you will be able to join me at the West Regional Courthouse on those days

    As for the North Broward Democratic Club’s Annual Labor Day Picnic which was rained out on Monday, September 3rd, I believe it is being re-scheduled in October.  More when I find out.

    Remember: Broward County and Florida can lead the nation in voting for blue candidates who will bring sanity back to our nation.  And you can help!

Protect the Right to Choose: Make Two Phone Calls

    The Senate Confirmation Hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh starts tomorrow (Tuesday.)  If you did not get a chance to see the Rachel Maddow show, try to watch it.  A very compelling case is made for opposing this nomination.  The show discusses Kavanaugh’s role in the case of a pregnant teenage immigrant who decided that she wanted an abortion and got a Texas Court to allow that abortion.  Judge Kavanaugh’s remarkable resistance to allowing that teenager to exercise her constitutional right to get an abortion and his dissenting opinion in that case contributes to the belief that many people have that he would vote to overturn Roe versus Wade if he becomes a Supreme Court Justice.

    This is why 46% of American women do not support the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.  And this is why, for the first time in its 25 years of existence, the Center for Reproductive Rights is opposing a President’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

     If you agree that a woman’s constitutional right to choose to have a abortion must be protected, think about making phone calls to the two Republican senators who may well decide whether or not Brett Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court Justice:

        Senator Susan Collins –  207-622-8414
        Senator Lisa Murkowski – 202-224-6665

    Thank you for making your voices heard!

Do Republicans Have Any Idea Who DeSantis Is?

    Hi, everybody!

    ThinkProgress is a news website sponsored by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization.  Earlier today, ThinkProgress reported that Florida’s Republican nominee for governor, Rep. Ron DeSantis, was one of the administrators of a racist, Islamophobic, and conspiratorial Facebook group which shared posts slamming Parkland shooting survivors and disparaging Black Lives Matter activists.  Do Republicans have any idea who they have chosen as their candidate for Governor?
            https://thinkprogress.org/florida-gop-gubernatorial-nominee-ron-desantis-admin-racist-anti-muslim-facebook-group-6e6d527c6fc2/

   
On a better note, I wanted to congratulate Michael Gottlieb on his successful campaign in the Primary for State Representative in District 98, and to recognize the other candidates for the hard-fought campaigns they ran.  I especially want to mention Andrew Dolberg, who I personally know worked as hard as he could.  He left it all out there!  Allow me to share with you Andrew’s Facebook post which talks more about Andrew Gillum than it does about his losing campaign:

“I’m going to have a few sprawling posts over the next few days because running for office was an amazing experience and there’s a lot I want to share.

But this post is about Andrew Gillum.

I had been following Gillum’s campaign since mid-2017 and was impressed by both the man and his message. When I finally had the chance to see him live in November, I was beyond impressed. This was a real person, not a cookie cutter candidate, who was speaking from his heart. He was sharp and had an incredible vision for our future.

He gave me hope.

I basically ran up to him to make sure I had the chance to say a quick hello and take a selfie before he (I assumed) ran off to his next event. But Andrew Gillum wasn’t rushing off. He stuck around and had a short conversation with absolutely anyone that wanted to meet him.

When it was my turn, he introduced himself and gave me a hug. We talked for a few minutes about his experience as a young political upstart, our views on voting rights and gerrymandering, and the importance of authenticity in a progressive message. I told him I wanted to support him and asked how I could help. He said “I can tell you’re willing to work hard, I like that.”

During the conversation, I felt like he truly cared. He cared about the community. He cared about our future. He cared about me, a random 24-year-old at one of eight thousand events he would attend throughout his campaign.

I called everyone I knew with one message: “This guy is the real deal.”

I started volunteering on his campaign. I worked hard and eventually opened his Broward field office. In conversations with him and with his team, I learned about policy issues, I learned about communications and field, and I learned about myself. Most importantly, I learned from Andrew Gillum that if you believe in something and you’re willing to put in the work, do it.

I was 200% committed to working with his amazing team to help Andrew Gillum cross the finish line. Then my State House Representative announced that she would not seek re-election.

If you believe in something and you’re willing to put in the work, do it. I believed that I could bring change to my community. I believed that I had ideas for new approaches to policy. I believed that I could do the work. And I was told by A LOT of people exactly what Andrew Gillum was told when he decided to run for City Council at 23 and when he decided to run for Governor: “It’s not your time.”

Andrew Gillum inspired me to say “yes, it is.” He was one of the first people I called once I made the decision. I apologized profusely for stepping back from his campaign and he said “don’t worry about me, go win.” He gave me some sagely advice and reminded me to be true to myself.

There’s only two things I can say for certain about my race:

1) I’m proud of the campaign I ran and I worked as hard as I possibly could have.

2) I would not have run if not for Andrew Gillum.

This story is personal but it is not unique. Every single person who has seen him, who has heard him speak, who has met him, who has worked with him, or who has listened to rants about what he means for our future has been inspired by Andrew Gillum in their own personal way.

Over the next few weeks, pundits are going to dissect every variable of this race to figure out how they were so wrong. They’re going to say the polls didn’t account for x, y, and z. They’re going to say it’s the Blue Wave. They’re going to come up with 10,000 reasons, and they’re all going to be wrong. Last night’s result comes down to one thing:

Andrew Gillum is an inspiration.”



    Well said, Andrew!

Andrew Gillum will be the First Democratic Governor of Florida in 20 Years!

    Evening, everybody!

    To say that what happened today in Florida’s Primary Election was a monumental upset is frankly an understatement.  Mayor Andrew Gillum’s victory in the gubernatorial race was simply amazing, and just goes to show that sometimes it doesn’t matter that you don’t have money, name recognition, or the backing of the Democratic establishment.  The people of Florida recognized that Andrew Gillum is the real deal, truly special, and that he will be an exceptional Governor for the Sunshine State.  And Broward County had a lot to do with helping Gillum across the finish line.

    But now we have to double down in our efforts to make sure that on November 6th, Andrew Gillum is elected Governor, Bill Nelson is re-elected Senator in Florida, and Amendment 4 passes to restore the right to vote to the 1.5 million Floridians with felony convictions.  We have to contribute to their campaigns, we have to register as many voters as possible, and we have to knock on more doors than ever before.  If you haven’t gotten involved yet, NOW IS THE TIME!

    At the West Regional Courthouse yesterday, Joseph Russel and Marsha Eisenberg helped to register nine voters (7 of them Democrats!), collect 12 vote-by-mail requests and 35 universal background check demands.  We will be back the Courthouse tomorrow (Wednesday) from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Join me and we can celebrate together!

    Here’s how else you can help:

    On Saturday, September 1st, John Ziegler’s team will be back at the West Regional Library in Plantation from 10 AM until 6 PM.  Volunteers take 2-hour shifts.  John still needs volunteers for the 10 to 12 shift, the 12 to 2 shift, and the 4 to 6 shift.  If you’d like to help with voter registration at the Library on Saturday, please contact John at 954-232-3918 or johnjoeziegler@aol.com;   

    Don’t forget about the North Broward Democratic Club’s Annual Labor Day Picnic at 1 PM on Monday, September 3rd at the Pompano Beach Community Park, South Pavilion.  Bring a dish to share.  Come and meet officials, candidates, and rising stars!

    On Wednesday, September 5th, 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.

    And on Tuesday, September 11th, the Plantation Democratic Club will have its monthly meeting at 7 PM at the Jim Ward Community Center 301 NW 46 Avenue in Plantation.  Among other topics of discussion, yours truly will be giving a presentation on the Constitutional Amendments which will be on the November Ballot.  Save the date and join us!

    On November 6th, Broward County and Florida can lead the nation in voting for blue candidates who will bring sanity back to our nation.  Will you help?  Start out by making a contribution to Andrew Gillum’s campaign at https://andrewgillum.com/

Tuesday is Election Day and This is How I Voted

    Good evening, friends!

    With the latest revelations, even Republicans should realize that the man in the White House thinks that the people he has appointed to serve in his Administration should be loyal to him and not to our country and its Constitution.  He has lied (almost every day!) and he has committed crimes and he has obstructed justice, and still we hear hardly a sound from Republican congressmen and senators.  Their lack of integrity and courage and their failure to put their country first makes me think that they have forfeited any right to be elected or re-elected on November 6th.

    It was another good week for voter registration at the West Regional Courthouse.  Along with the assistance of volunteers Joseph Russel, Marsha Eisenberg, Robin Adell, and John Countryman, we managed to register 16 voters (15 as Democrats!), sign up 24 voters to receive their ballots by mail, and collect 81 demands for universal background checks on firearm purchases!

    Here’s how to get involved during the last few days before Tuesday’s Primary Election:

    Over the next few days, the Broward Democratic Party will send you out to knock on doors, and for those who don’t want to canvass, it is holding phone banks and hustle parties at different locations around Broward County.  Check out these events at http://browarddemocrats.org/events-2/

    At 12 Noon on Sunday, August 26th, there will be a Souls 2 the Polls Rally for the Andrew Gillum Campaign at the Miramar Library, 2050 Civic Center Pl. in Miramar.

    On Monday, August 27th, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse from 10 AM to 2 PM to register voters and collect requests to vote-by-mail.  Let me know if you can join me.

    Tuesday is the Primary Election.  I will be at Central Park Elementary School campaigning for Andrew Dolberg and Andrew Gillum from 7 AM until 10 AM and from 5 PM until 7 PM.  Let me know if you’d like to join me there.

    On Wednesday, August 28th, I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse from 10 AM to 2 PM to register voters, sign people up to vote-by-mail, and collect pledges to vote yes on Amendment 4 in November.  Let me know if you can join me.

    And don’t forget about the North Broward Democratic Club’s Annual Labor Day Picnic at 1 PM on Monday, September 3rd at the Pompano Beach Community Park, South Pavilion.  Bring a dish to share.  Come and meet officials, candidates, and rising stars!

   
    Finally, as many of you know, I am supporting Andrew Gillum in the Gubernatorial race and Andrew Dolberg in the District 98 State Representative race. 
(This message represents my opinion alone and does not represent the view of any political club or other organization.)

    Here is Andrew Gillum’s latest message:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lbWg37Mklc&feature=youtu.be

    With the understanding that what is on my ballot may not be the same as what’s on your ballot, (If I were in their districts, I would also support Laurie Rich Levinson and Jared Moskowitz), this is how I voted in the August 28th Primary Election:

    Governor………………………………………………Andrew Gillum

    Attorney General………………………………………..Sean Shaw

    Commissioner of Agriculture………………Nicole “Nikki” Fried

    State Representative, District 98…………….Andrew Dolberg

    Circuit Judge, Group 8……………………..Ernest Albert Kollra

    Circuit Judge, Group 36…………..Kristin Weisberg Padowitz

    Circuit Judge, Group 38………………..Stefanie Camille Moon

    Circuit Judge, Group 39…………..Camille Coolidge-Shotwell
   
    Circuit Judge, Group 42…………………………….Michael Usan

    Circuit Judge, Group 43………………………………..Dan Casey

    Circuit Judge, Group 46…………….Maria Markhasin-Weekes

    County Judge, Group 9………….Tanner Channing Demmery

    County Judge, Group 10………………….Robert F. “Bob” Diaz

    County Judge, Group 17……………………………Michael Davis

    County Judge, Group 19……………………………Allison Gilman

    County Judge, Group 25……………………………Robert W. Lee

    School Board, Seat 8…………………………..Donna Pilger Korn
       
    Funding Security and Essential Instruction for Schools…Yes

    You don’t have to agree with my choices or vote the same way, but please vote!

    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!

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!
