Post Title - Change Me

October 16, 2021
ear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

I am worried. I am thankful that we have some respite, respite with our Democratic President and Congress and, even with the challenges they face, I know that for a time, we are safe. No, not completely safe. The Trump Supreme Court is a huge problem and other issues continue to arise. But the most serious issues will come November 2022 and November 2024, when our country is at risk of losing the House, possibly the Senate and then the White House to authoritarian leadership. Listening to rational former Republicans, (Christine Todd Whitman (NYTimes), Max Boot, Michael Gerson (Washington Post), this week they see what we see. That our Democracy, that our treasured country as we know it, is at risk.

I know we are all burnt out. I am. I, who am always passionate about politics, want a break. And we have all been coasting this year after all the energy expended in 2020. But come January 2022, we will have to ramp up again. In the meantime, do this one thing. Pledge The PAC needs your contributions. Please pledge an amount -- $25, $35, $50, $100 a month -- and make a regular monthly contribution. Or make a one-time donation in any amount. We need to get started before we hit 2022.

Thank you,

Lita

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

Thank goodness we and sanity prevailed in the recall. Now we can focus on 2022. I am looking forward to our meeting on Tuesday but even more, I am looking forward to meeting in person. How many of you are willing to get together? Are you willing to sit separated (or in pods with friends), masked, where we all have shown our vaccine cards? Please respond to this email with a Yes or No.

Our meeting Tuesday will definitely be fascinating. Following the meeting, with its focus on the Climate Crisis, I hope some will stay for a conversation where we can talk about the many issues that concern us, what meetings you would like to see, and just catch up!
