Kudos to these six good Democrats who visited the office of Senator Ted Cruz to talk about healthcare.  On June 29, they met with Cruz’s State Operations Officer and delivered petitions to emphasize the importance of healthcare to Texans.  Brenda Alicea said, “We must believe we make a difference and he must know we are not apathetic nor are we going away!”
Pictured, from left to right are Linda Moran, Robert Melendez, Marianne Chmeleck, Pam Gardner, Peggy Kennedy, and Fred Redeker.

The next day, five more Dems went to the office of Senator John Cornyn.  From left to right are Dr Christine Mann, Felicia Miyakawa (co-chair of Wilco Indivisible), Rick Ragan, Gale Radebaugh, and Brenda Alicea.  They focused on Healthcare and delivered  petitions.

 

 

 

Can Senator John Cornyn see the healthcare crisis from here?  Dr Christine Mann and Felicia Miyakawa are in his 15th floor office in the Chase building, downtown Austin.   Felicia is the co-chair of Wilco Indivisible.  If you are interested in participating in office visits, contact Brenda Alicea at michstate71@suddenlink.net or Gale Radebaugh at bgsu7276@suddenlink.net .

Mike Collier Announces                                                           June 17, 2017

Mike Collier announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor at a rally June 17 in Round Rock.  He described his plan to beat Dan Patrick, to whom Mike attributes the worst Texas legislative session in history.   Sun City Democrats carpooled to the the rally. Sun City Democrats met Mike when he spoke at our “Rally for the Blue” in April, and many thought him to be a highly credible candidate.  As yet, no one else has declared for Lt. Governor.
