Dear Conversation Cafe Women,
Patricia and I have heard your need to have conversation cafe sooner rather than later in November. So the next date of CCW will be November 16th from 7-9pm. The topic is “Living Fully in your Yes and No.” There will also be a CCW on November 30th. We look forward to re-connecting with all of you.
As you know, tomorrow, Nov 7th, is election day. Up for re-election to Congress from our district (PA-14) is Mike Doyle, a Democrat. He is not opposed by a Republican, but he does have a challenger — Titus North, a Green party candidate. I urge you to vote for Mr. North.
My motivation is simple, and it’s not because I want North to win. Instead, I want our Congressional district to look like a deeper shade of blue.
Doyle’s victory is assured, and a vote for North will not actually hurt the Democrat’s chances. But it will send a signal — to Doyle, and to future candidates — about the values held by voters in our district. Furthermore, it will strengthen the visibility and viability of an alternative to the two major parties. And when the voters have real alternatives, we all win.
Please spread this message, and don’t forget to vote early, and vote often.
Greetings from Olympia, WA. The weather is typical for the Northwest this time of year. It is around 50 degrees, drizzling – smell of wet leaves and wood burning stoves. [Read more…] about Post Card from Olympia, WA.
