Letter From the President

 

Dear Hells Kitchen Democrats,

This has been an incredible year for our club and for our party. I am so proud of the work that each of you have put in to making HK Dems a success.

This year your hard work paid off in ridding NY of the IDC, electing progressive candidates, and growing a movement in our community that began almost 2 years ago.

As we enter 2019 I encourage you all to stay active, spread the word, and engage in the club by bringing to us programing, events, and candidates you want us to highlight and support.

In 2019 we will be adding committees and holding panel discussions about issues that matter to you, our members.

Remember on Jan 3 we have our meeting and January 10th we will be having a special presentation with a live podcast taping. We are looking forward to seeing you all there.

Our club elections are just around the corner in February  at our Annual Meeting. We encourage you to run for a position and join our executive committee.

The last 2 years serving as Founding President of HK Dems has been a true honor and privilege. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve. 

As we grow as a club my role will transition from being president to being a member of the executive committee as the founding president.

I look forward to continuing to work with all of you to grow our club and our movement and I look forward to working with whoever becomes our newly elected president and executive board.

Have a happy and safe New Years.

In Gratitude,
Marti Cummings
HK Dems President

We'll be making calls and writing postcards tomorrow for Perry Gershon, running for Congress in NY-1 on Long Island, and Antonio Delgado, running for Congress in NY-19 in the Hudson Valley. Both are great candidates fighting for a healthcare "public option", opposition to the Republican billionaire tax giveaway, and investigation of the Trump family corruption and greed. Failing to win races like these would empower and embolden Trump even further - can you imagine what he'll do next if the "Blue Wave" comes to nothing? Now's the time to bring a friend or neighbor who promised to get involved, and hasn't yet. Bring a mobile phone, a laptop or tablet, and a headset - we'll bring refreshments and all the info and training you need.

Lunch is provided, it's a lot of fun, and we really need a good solid HK Dems showing to make the best of the large donation we already made for the buses.  No experience is required!

 

PLEASE NOTE: These are *two separate buses* going to two different campaigns. To fairly distribute the volunteers, you'll be asked to board the bus that you are registered for, so please be sure to choose which campaign you'd like to work on. If you cannot afford the $10 cost, or you are a student, please contact us for a limited number of subsidized tickets.

Phonebank for State Senate Candidates

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 • 6-9pm

We'll be making calls and writing postcards for Jen Metzger in State Senate District 42, overlapping Antonio Delgado in NY-19, and Kevin Thomas in State Senate District 6, overlapping Liuba Gretchen Shirley in NY-2.  NY state law can protect our people against some of the national Republican agenda, and both are solid progressive candidates who support the NY Health Act and proper funding for public schools.  Also, both have Democratic registration advantages in their districts - we just need to get those voters to the polls.
