Dear Fellow Democrats,
A NY Times op-ed contributor recently posed the question, “How do you shame the shameless?”
The Trump Administration’s contempt for:
• The poor – especially poor children
• The unemployed
• The uninsured
• Non-white immigrants and refugees
• The press
• The right of Americans to vote……
goes unaddressed by Republicans in the House and Senate. In fact, the cruel “healthcare” bill passed in the House that will deprive 23 million citizens of health insurance was celebrated by Trump and the peoples’ “representatives” with beer and high five’s. Shameless, indeed.
Feeling furious and powerless is exhausting and unproductive. Action is the antidote and we are writing to give you an opportunity to take action right here in Gardiner. On Friday, July 14th, 7 P.M. at Gardiner Town Hall the Gardiner Democratic Committee is holding a caucus. There you will have the opportunity to vote for the endorsed candidates of the Committee, Lisa Lindsley, a founding member of MFNY, for Town Supervisor, incumbent Dave Dukler for Town Board, Warren Wiegand for Town Board, Bob Rich for Town Justice, Michelle Mosher for Town Clerk, and Brian Stiscia for Highway Superintendent. Your vote will determine who will be on the ballot in November.
Elect local leaders who reflect our Democratic values. Town Board members enact local laws that affect the quality of our lives. They also make appointments to boards, committees and commissions that oversee development and our natural resources, settle ethics issues and mediate assessment disputes.
Let’s elect the leaders we deserve. Make our democracy work right here in Gardiner.
See you at the caucus!
The Gardiner Democratic Committee
