JULY ~ 2012

***WED JULY 11 at 6:00PM - 8:30PM IMPORTANT SDCDP INFORMATIONAL SEMINAR Speakers On Training on the "Special Exemptions Act" "SPECIAL SEMINAR - (0r as I like to Name it) - - THE REPUBLICAN CORRUPT INITIATIVE that DEMOLISHES UNION DUES Used for POLITICAL FUNDRAISING! LET'S DEFEAT IT!!! ~ The Democratic Party is hosting a workshop on the most important initiative for Democrats to defeat on the fall ballot: the Special Exemptions Act, a corporate-sponsored power grab that would muzzle working people and defund Democratic candidates. For the third time in 14 years, right-wingers are trying to prevent labor organizations from exercising First Amendment rights. The current proposal would prohibit union members from making voluntary paycheck deductions for political purposes. It would also bar unions from contributing to candidates and political organizations. The group pushing the measure -- hypocritically named "Stop Special Interest Money Now" -- is dominated by large corporate special interests and executives, including the former head of the fundraising arm of the San Diego Republican Party. The intent of this measure is clear: to tilt the playing field overwhelmingly in favor of Republicans. Defeating it must be a Democratic priority. July 11 will be your opportunity to enlist in this battle, so please attend and prepare to get the truth out to our voters! WHERE: Laborers Union Hall, 4161 Home Ave., San Diego 92105 Contact: (858) 277-3367 Email: info@sddemocrats.org Website: http://www.cadem.org/...­.

And you will be helping elect good democrats, having conversations with wonderful people, and doing me a humongous favor. Two days of vigorous phone calls, finding out if people want to take on their fellow democrats, getting them to the polls and having their votes counted. We can't figure out why some democrats don't vote. If they all did, I would be out of a job (volunteer), and I would be delighted. But they don't. Here's where you come in. I wish I had the time to make hundreds of phone calls before the November elections. You are invited to help me. *The discussion will be polite and moderated. Words like "evil" and "bully" are forbidden. I'm sorry to have to Limit the number of attendees to 20. Applicants are accepted on a first come, first served basis.If you wish to come for a half day, just let me know. In return, I will give you delicious food to eat, and my deepest gratitude.

***SAT SEPT 29 "YES FOLKS ~ IT'S CALLIN' CAMP" Marcia will be holding another Callin' Camp for the UCSD area on September 29th and 30th. Two days of vigorous phone calls, finding out if people want to take on their fellow democrats, getting them to the polls and having their votes counted. We can't figure out why some democrats don't vote. If they all did, I would be out of a job (volunteer), and I would be delighted. But they don't. Here's where you come in. I wish I had the time to make hundreds of phone calls before the November elections. You are invited to help me.Contact Info: Email me: marciabookstein@gmail.com or call me if you are interested or have further questions 858-457-3024. Details TBA.
