Longmont Area Democrats Mid Month April Update

We have a lot to be proud of since Obama’s Inauguration in 2009:

– Passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
– Passage of the Credit Card Holder’s Bill of Rights
– Passage of Hate Crimes Prevention Act
– Tax Cuts for 95% of Americans
– Passage of the Jamie Leigh Jones Rape Prevention Amendment
– No more children get denied healthcare due to pre-existing conditions
Change is slow and frustrating, but it can’t end now.  We still have a long way to go!  Listed below, are two events for candidates who will work hard for real change.
I Betsy Markey Strategy Meeting 4/21
II Deb Gardner Fundraiser 4/23
I Betsy Markey for Congress Strategy Meeting in Longmont April 21st
From Angela Botticella, the Campaign Manager of Markey for Congress:
This November, we can’t afford to lose the passion, dedication and principled leadership Betsy has represented us with since being elected. And, thanks to the efforts of all the phenomenal volunteers this District, we won’t. However, we must continue to organize neighborhood by neighborhood, block by block, until we send Betsy back to Congress.
Will you join me in being a part of this movement for Betsy?
