Dear Friends and Neighbors, (Feel
free to share this with a friend.)
I am now president of the
Lakewood Ranch Democratic Club. In May of 2008 a group of us met at Trent
Miller's house and organized ourselves into an interested and active club. We
met monthly, and as the election neared, we met bi-weekly. We knocked on doors,
made phone calls, worked the polls, registered voters, and met new and remarkable
people here and in Sarasota for spirited discussion and interaction.
As was to be expected there was a
lull after the inauguration, but our interest is being piqued again around the
subject of health care, and in response to the inflammatory nature in which
this subject is being explored. So it's time to get engaged again.
The Lakewood Ranch Democratic
Club is a bit of a misnomer in that attendance at our meetings is open to anyone who lives in Manatee County and is a
registered Democrat, an unaffiliated voter, or a disillusioned Republican.
Our initial goal is to
re-invigorate our paid-up membership roll.
Please send a check for $25.00 per person to our treasurer Ms. Ginny
Orenstein, 8047 Royal Birkdale
Circle, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202; or be prepared to bring it with you the next time you
The Manatee County Democratic
Headquarters is located at 435 Cortez Road West.
Thanks for your support.
