AND SPEAKING OF THOSE ELECTIONS
Our PDACNM members are running!
!!!!!!!One of our most loyal PDACNM members, Cheryl Harris, will be running for female Vice-Chair at the Bernalillo County Central Committee meeting on April 8. And another, J.D. Mathews, will be running for State Vice-Chair from CD1 on April 29. I know, as do many others, that both these individuals work extremely hard for what they believe in and that they truly believe in making the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County and New Mexico stronger, more inclusive, and even more successful than we already are. They also believe that the Party needs to emphasize the values and issues that have made the Party a party of, by and for the people. Having worked with these two for several years, I cannot believe that anyone is more qualified to lead the Party forward.!!!!!
AND SPEAKING AGAIN OF THOSE ELECTIONS
(At the county meetings I am hearing people saying let’s move on, forget about the past, work together. Well, moving on and working together can only happen if we stop moving on and try to understand what happened in 2016. Continuing down the same path and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
The 2018 elections are looming and if we keep blaming marginal issues for our devastating losses in 2016 and not addressing the real reasons, we are in serious trouble. The following article “Third Way” represents one direction for the party. We progressives and realists think this is and has been political suicide. We will not move on or work together if the corporate wing of the Democratic Party continues to dictate the direction. And we believe the rest of the country agrees with us. Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in the country right now. Read it here.There is a reason for that. The people are speaking. Laura Stokes)
