On MONDAY 8/7 from 5:30-7 pm we are having a Democratic Party District 12 Meeting in the Pukalani Pool Multipurpose Room.
The purpose of our meeting is to discuss the Democratic Party’s “Summer of Resistance and Renewal” initiative. The goal of our statewide program is to organize districts and precincts and activate our members by getting them involved in upcoming meetings and events, canvassing members and putting a survey in the field, updating membership information that we collect on the doors, “cleaning up” the DPH database, and ultimately building a solid network of members across the state. This will enable us to help promote our legislative agenda based on the Party Platform.
The AGENDA of our meeting will include –
-Introduction to “Summer of Resistance and Renewal” initiative
-Review of vacant precinct leadership positions and process of filling them
-Plan a canvass and/or phone bank event later in August
-Schedule meeting for September
If you’d like to be involved but cannot attend our meeting, please let me know. Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you there!
Precinct 13-2 is sponsoring a Democratic Party meeting on Sunday, July 16th, 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Haiku Elementary School cafeteria. The topic of the meeting is expanded healthcare options.
Leslie Hartley Gise MD of Kula will be the guest speaker. She will discuss the current healthcare system in Hawaii and throughout the US, and options for improving it to better serve the people.
The plan under discussion by the Republican Congress repeals the gains made under Obamacare and leaves millions of Americans behind. Dr. Gise is working with thousands of physicians nationwide to research and recommend a better way forward based on expansion of the Medicare system that we already have.
This is an open Democratic Party meeting, sponsored by Precinct 13-2.
