ROCKY RIVER DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING

Tuesday, February 23, 7 PM via Zoom

Featured Speakers:

LIZ WALTERS, Chair, Ohio Democratic Party
Ohio was once considered a key battleground state.  Democratic Party losses in the state over the last several election cycles have many political experts wondering about Ohio’s future when compared to Arizona and Georgia.  Ms. Walters will share her vision about the political future of our state; and most importantly, will listen to our feedback during the meeting. This is our opportunity to let the leadership of the Ohio Democratic Party know our thoughts about how Democrats can win in Ohio.

STATE REP. MONIQUE SMITH, (D – Fairview Park)
Rep. Smith will serve on the following committees in the 134th General Assembly: Commerce and Labor, Economic and Workforce Development, and Technology and Innovation.  She will provide an update on the activities of those committees and provide her perspective on Ohio Government as she begins her freshman term as our Representative. 


CLUB BUSINESS:

Officer elections will take place for the Rocky River Democratic Club (RRDC).

CONTACT ROB PORTMAN – THE SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Sen. Portman statement on January 13th:
“…the attack on the US Capitol was an attack on democracy itself, and the President bears some responsibility for what occurred…If the Senate conducts an impeachment trial, among my considerations will be what is best to help heal our country rather than deepen our divisions.”

Please contact Sen. Portman and remind him that the process of healing begins with holding Trump accountable for his actions.  He should vote “yes” to convict Trump for – in Portman’s own words – “an attack on democracy itself.”

CONTACT SENATOR ROB PORTMAN
