Resistance Summer at Sun City                                           July 16, 2017

Picnic Picnic Picnic!

Summer Resistance Picnic

July 16, Sun City Democrats enjoyed BBQ, wine and beer at Legacy Park Pavilion in Sun City.
Nationwide, the DNC is organizing Democrats for the 2018 elections, calling this summer “Resistance Summer.”  And our own Activists group sponsored our picnic . We should all give a big thank you to the event organizers Dan Spencer, Robert and Cathy Melendez and Pat Perkison, and all those who helped with the set up and clean-up of the Pavilion. Our candidates for Congress, Mike Clark, M.J. Hegar, Kent Lester and Christine Mann, were all inspiring and informative, proving emphatically that any of them would be a better Congressional Representative than the incumbent. The barbershop harmony of the Austin Harmony Chorus delighted all, while the beer and barbeque fed the 100 plus in attendance at this very successful event.

Visit to Cruz Office                                                               June 30, 2017

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 .
