Skype with Beto O’Rourke Jan 5, 2018
Come out to the Ballroom Friday Jan 5 to skype with Beto O’rourke over the big screen from Washington DC. This event is called Friday Night Fights! because Beto’s challenge to Ted Cruz for a Senate seat is bound to be a knock-down drag-out fight. Beto’s campaign staff will attend, as will Texas Democratic Party leaders and former Williamson Democratic Party Chair, John Bucy III, who will talk about plans for 2018.
Get your $10.00 ticket at https://secure.actblue.com/donate/fnfticket or go to sctexas.org, log in and click on “Tickets.” Ballroom doors open at 6:00 pm on Jan 5. Free popcorn and water and BYOB. There is no reserved seating.
Please note that the Sun City Democrats IMPACT Committee is sponsoring the event, but is not endorsing Beto or any other candidate until after the Primaries. Neither will IMPACT be contributing to Beto’s campaign as his campaign does not accept donations from PACs. Of course, you can personally contribute to his campaign, so bring your checkbooks.
Message from the President – Larry Buxbaum Dec 17, 2017
As 2017 draws to a close, I want to reflect on the Sun City Democrats Club during this extraordinarily eventful year. Few would argue that the political period was filled with tumult, chaos and outrage. With unprecedented dysfunction as a background, your club moved with passion, discipline and enthusiasm to play a critical role in advancing the progressive values that lie at the heart of our club.
I applaud the enormous growth in our membership. We will greet the new year with over 550 proud members, a leap in membership that is all the more remarkable for an “off-year.” Needless to say, the election results from November, 2016 played a large part in convincing folks that participation with a group of like-minded individuals is critical to resisting horrific governmental actions. The development early in the year of an Activist Group led to coordinated action by our outraged members — marching in demonstrations, writing and calling elected officials, visiting officeholders in person and generally keeping our members informed.
