Seventeen Days and Counting

“Not Voting Isn’t Rebellion, It’s Surrender.”

 

We have seen the races tightening, we know the infusion of cash from the Koch brothers and other dark money groups will continue, but we have an advantage over the Republicans that they cannot overcome- our ground game and our ability to turn out voters. This makes the next 17 days crucial.

 

Don’t sit this one out, don’t leave it to “someone else.” You are someone else and you are needed for us to win. Think back to 2010, and the devastating O’Brien-led tea party/free state/John Birch Society coalition that set our state back years. We cannot afford to repeat that.

 

Volunteer to canvass, make phone calls, write a letter to the editor, attend an event, hold signs at a visibility. Do something!

 

Last night, the New Hampshire Democratic Party had our annual Jefferson/Jackson Dinner, with special guest President Bill Clinton. President Clinton, Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan, Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Kuster all gave fantastic speeches that fired up the crowd.

 

But the best advice came from two of our best organizers. Party Chair Ray Buckley reminded the crowd that, if each attendee convinced 25 Democrats to vote who otherwise would not have, we would sweep the table this election. He is right, turnout is the key!

 

Hillsborough County Democrats Chair Graham Smith deservedly received the Grassroots Organizer of the Year Award, and reminded us that the Democrats who voted in 2008 and 2012, but stayed home in 2010 must come out for this election. If you are one of those, we need you. If you know someone who skipped 2010, we need you to get them to the polls.

 

If we do that, we win.

Election Day

 

Will will have the best visibility in Brookline and Mason of any area towns! Whatever you can contribute, an hour, two or more, will be a great help. We will finalize in our next email.

 

I will close as I opened, with a theme from last night’s Jefferson/Jackson Dinner. Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan and Congresswoman Kuster know they are asking a lot of us.

Senator Gilmour, County Attorney LaFrance, Candidate for Executive Council Sheehan, Representative Levesque and Representative Candidate Taylor know how hard you have worked. They are asking for more.

It is down to these last seventeen days, it is down to us. Do what you can, do more than you think you can, the future of our towns, our state and our country are at stake.

 

Sincerely,

Keith

PS- At the Jefferson/Jackson Dinner, State Party Chair Ray Buckley referred to the Bill O’Brien’s political allies as the “Crackpot Coalition” and he was spot on. We cannot go back to those days.

Monthly Meeting and Discussion of Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act
 
Brookline, Hollis and Mason Democrats are hosting an information session about the Affordable Care Act on Tuesday, June 18, 7 pm at the Firestation Meeting Room.
Deborah  Fournier, a representative from the NH Fiscal Policy Institute, will share factual information on the implementation and answer questions on healthcare and Medicaid expansion.
Please contact Keith at BrooklineDemocrats@gmail.com for more information.
There has been a lot of misleading information circulated out there, some of it presented right here in Brookline. Misleading information is being used in the Massachusetts Senatorial race and attacks on Senator Jeanne Shaheen have used grossly inaccurate information in the first negative ads of the 2014 NH Senate race.
We cannot allow Republicans to repeat their success of 2010 with lies and fear around the Affordable Care Act.
Join us on Tuesday, bring friends and neighbors!
