MEET RICHARD CORDRAY, OUR NEXT GOVERNOR OF OHIO

Wednesday, September 26, 4:30-6 PM, Cleveland


MEET SUSAN MORAN PALMER

Monday, September 24,  6 PM

Tartine Bistro, 19110 Detroit Rd., Rocky River

Please bring your kids and neighbors to this free event to meet our next Representative to the United States Congress!

Co-hosting is Harriet Applegate, head of the North Shore AFL-CIO.  The Democratic Party recognizes that unions helped build the middle class, and it will stand with unions to fight for American workers.

Our Congressional District 16 (Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Westlake, much of Rocky River and beyond) is Ohio’s only open congressional seat contest.  With your support, our chances are very strong that Susan will replace Jim Renacci and represent our values in Congress.    

Susan is facing a well-funded opponent.  Nearly 90 PAC’s including KochPac,  Mike Pence’s and Paul Ryan’s Pacs are contributing to her Republican opponent. If you can make a contribution at any of the suggested levels, or any amount,  it will help Susan counter their influence.


ROCKY RIVER DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING

Tuesday, September 25, 7 PM

Rocky River Public Library, 1600 Hampton

The agenda will include:

  • Local candidates who are on the November 6 ballot
  • Tim Hagan, former Cuyahoga County Commissioner, discussing what’s at stake on November 6th
  • Steve Dever, former Rocky River City Leader with an update on Leedco’s Lake Erie wind farm
  • A Get Out The Vote participatory postcard activity

Tuesday, September 25th is also National Voter Registration Day.  For information about events in our area, please click HERE 


MEET RICHARD CORDRAY

Wednesday, September 26, 4:30 – 6 PM

Cleveland (Exact location provided with RSVP)

Richard will be joined by Tom Perez, Chair of the Democratic National Committee and Steve Bullock, Governor of Montana.   By all important measures such as job growth and education, Ohio has declined under the state’s Republican leadership.  Richard Cordray and Betty Sutton will bring the change that’s needed to improve the lives of all Ohioans.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting of the
Rocky River Democratic Club

Tuesday, August 28, 7 PM
Rocky River Public Library

Remember how you felt when Hillary Clinton lost?

 The last eighteen months of the Trump Administration have been painful (or fill-in your own adjective).  In less than 100 days, we have the opportunity to do something about it – voting for Democratic Candidates for the US Senate, Congress, Governor, and offices in the Ohio Statehouse!
More than just our own votes, it is important that we increase the number of Democratic votes among those who are not registered, unengaged, or uninformed about what Democrats stand for.
If you’ve been waiting to channel your energy against Trump and all that his presidency has wrought, now is the time to become active.

Please attend on August 28th to get plugged into concrete ways that you can help in the final weeks before early voting begins. 

At the meeting, the following speakers will focus on actions to Get Out the Vote!

  • Trevor Elkins, Mayor of Newburg Heights and Progressive Democratic Party Activist
  •  Khalid Saursour, Field Organizer, the Coordinated Campaigns for Senator Brown and Richard Cordray/Betty Sutton
  •  Heather McCalla, Member, Bay Village Nasty Women
 
 If Democrats win the Senate and Congress, Trump’s reckless agenda can be stopped!
 
Help get others registered and committed to voting for Democrats because votes are all that matter.

Please join us on August 28th and bring someone along!

June Events!

Susan Moran Palmer was the featured speaker at our May 22 Club meeting.  She is the Democratic candidate for the United States Congress, District 16, which includes much of the Westside, including Rocky River.  Susan shared her vision about preserving healthcare, growing jobs and wages, saving public education, addressing the opioid and gun crises, and much more. 

We know that we need to turn Congress blue to save our country from the extremes of the current Administration.  Help elect Susan to make that happen.  For more information, to volunteer or contribute, click HERE.

During the 2016 Presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as a “nasty woman” and as a result, the Nasty Women movement began.  The dynamic Bay Village Nasty Women group will meet on June 20th to create strategies for high voter turnout in November.  Working with Democrats across the Westside, together we’ll make change happen in November.  The meeting is free and everyone is welcome!
