April 11: Sun City Dems Discussion Group – Genevieve Van Cleve
The Democratic Discussion Group on April 11 at 2:00 p.m. at Cowan Creek will feature a dynamic discussion led by Genevieve Van Cleve who will give a political update for central Texas and review some opportunities headed our way. Genevieve Van Cleve, a Pflugerville native, graduated from the University of New Mexico (1998) with a degree in political science. For the past 10 years, she worked to recruit, train, and elect great women to political office in Texas. The heart of good politics is engaging compelling people, listening to their path to leadership, and connecting them to the tools, data, and resources necessary to win elected office. Among other past positions she helped elect Sarah Eckhardt (first female county judge in Travis County) and served as Political Director for Annie’s List in Austin. For a sojourn, in 2017, Genevieve walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain twice. She biked 150 miles through The Netherlands, and back packed in Idaho and Washington State. In total, she hiked and biked over 1,000 miles. Now, with renewed energy, she’s ready to be of use, of service, and on a team that’s making a difference in the lives of everyday people. For her SC Dems discussion she will give a political update for central Texas and review some opportunities headed our way
