Come on down every first first Monday of the month to the LCDP meeting, next Monday, April 2, 2018, at Mama June’s on Inner Perimeter. It’s a social gathering, and it’s a business meeting. It moves around, so if you have a favorite location for fifty or so of your closest Democratic friends, let us know.

Party business doesn’t stop after the monthly meeting adjourns. There’s a BBQ to put on, candidates to elect, issues to air, and bills to pay. A few officers or committee members can’t do it alone. You are the party, so you can help us all Ride the Big Blue Wave.
