Good evening, everybody!
Did you watch the election returns on Tuesday night from the House district race between Conor Lamb and Rick Saccone? If we ever needed confirmation that every single vote counts, we got it big time as we watched the results come in! I hope you are as encouraged as I am about what this should mean for the November mid-terms. Those who can afford it should double down on contributions to take back the House AND the Senate. I’ll include links in a future email.
On Tuesday, the Plantation Democratic Club unanimously passed a 13-point resolution to encourage the passage of common sense measures to curb gun violence. I will share this resolution with you in a future email.
So, there I was yesterday at the West Regional Courthouse with Emily Park, Robin Adell, Scott Sharp, Beth Mumby, Lauren Tate, and Ron McCoy, when a large group of students who had walked out of their school to protest gun violence and encourage more common sense regulations walked by on Pine Island Road. We cheered them on as loudly as we could! We ended up collecting 8 voter registration forms and 31 requests to vote-by-mail. Many thanks to all of you for coming out!
On Saturday, March 17th, from 10 AM to 1 PM, Never Again, an Enlightened Discussion on Gun Reform, will take place at the War Memorial Auditorium, 800 NE 8th Street, in Fort Lauderdale. Join local, state, and federal legislators; educational, faith-based, and community leaders; and students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for a public forum on gun reform, school safety, and collective action we can take to bring about meaningful change.
I will be back at the West Regional Courthouse and Library (Pine Island & Broward) on Wednesday, March 21st, from 10 AM to 2 PM, registering voters and collecting requests to vote-by-mail. Please let me know if you can join me out there on that day.
On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC and elsewhere to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. One of the marches will take place at 9 AM on Saturday, March 24th at the Pine Trails Park, 10555 Trails End in Parkland. For further information, check out https://marchforourlives.com/
