What happened at the Meetup?

I had to leave after the first 20 minutes to get to the La Mesa Democratic Club and pass out info they'd requested.

Can someone please tell me what I missed?

I'd especially like details on the 4th Schwarzenegger initiative; I know about the pension one (just withdrawn), teacher tenure/merit pay, and redistricting. What else is there?

Also I'd heard that DFA members may be scheduling meetings with their Congressional representatives on Social Security. I'm in Duncan Hunter's district and would like to be included in any meeting. Note: Even if we're sure he'll refuse to meet with us, I encourage someone to please call and request a meeting. I'd love to do an article on how our elected official is refusing to see his constitutents on such an important issue!

I can't figure out how to view any of the replies to my messages or anyone else's. All of a sudden the replies won't display. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Please send your answer via email to writerink@cox.net. Thanks! Miriam

With less than a week to go until the next DFA meetup, this important question still has not been answered. Since I was out of town for the April meetup, I also wanted to know what was discussed and resolved then. I emailed the SD DFA Committee three times asking what happened--with no answer. Is anybody on the Committee answering emails from members? Is there anybody assigned to take notes at each meeting and send out minutes of each meeting via email or post here? What is the agenda for next week? It would be nice to begin thinking about and discussing upcoming issues since there is only a finite amount of time at each meeting.

Hi! If you have sent the steering committee a message
concerning this issue, I Have not recieived one of your
requests. Sorry. Mike and Margaret Lawerence have left the
steering committee group. So we have been short handed. Rob
Penny, was going to write up a summary, but, ran out of time
this week. So, I will give you just the headlines.

Wade Sanders was ill, and could not make the meeting. Howard
Wayne, former Assemblymen and active Democrat, was Kind
enough to fill in at the last moment. He gave a terrific
speech on Social Security. And, spoke a for words on the local
issues. Also, informed the group of True Blue Radio 1040 AM
Every Monday 5-6, Ken and Enquire host a Democratic Hour.

DFA HQ's sent us a project: National DFA Day, Legislative
meetings with Congressional Rep, on the issue of Social
Security. We were to make an appointment with all the
Congressional Represetatives on April 14. WE divided up into
groups of 4 for each congress member, 50th, 52th, 53th and Bob
Fliner District. The result of these meeting is on the agenda
for May 4.

Charlie Imes spoke a few minutes that the conflict conflict
between SDFD and SD Meetup Group #23 is resolved.

A few heads of the committees of SDFD spoke of their progress.

Earth Day and the DFA Booth needed to be staffed and needed
volunteers.

That is a very short review. I hope this will do for now.
Robert is planning on doing the summary, if Mike and Margaret
Lawrence do not come back to the steering committee.

The Speaker for May 4, will be Anne Hoiberg, from the United
Nations Assoc. of San Diego. She will be speaking about her
experiences in Iraq. I have heard her speech on this subject.
It was very interesting and damn good. I can't wait to hear it
again.

Delegates to the California Democratic Convention in LA, will
speak of their views of the Convention.

I hope to see you there!
