Democrats start by voting FOR AHTD federal funding for the future.


Sent:Mon 11/07/11 8:02 PM
Senior Democrats of Northwest Arkansas will host a "meet and greet" of all of the announced, officially or unofficially, candidates for State Representative, State Senator, County Offices and Judge positions at the Tuesday, Nov.15, 11:30AM meeting at Western Sizzlin, Springdale.   This will be a fun and informative meeting with a focus on fundraising.
From Washington County Democrats:
Highway Bond IssueStatewide Interstate Highway Bond issue in on the ballot for Tuesday, November 8th.  The election is about whether or not to give the Highway Department authority to issue bonds to fast forward maintenance on Arkansas interstates.   It is important to point out that this is NOT a tax increase.  The source of funds that the Highway Department will use to repay the bonds is already on the books and won't go away — even if voters vote no on the bonds.  Early voting continues at the County Courthouse on Monday and proceeds to your regular polling place on Tuesday.

November Meeting
Washington County Democrats next monthly meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 21st at the Washington County Courthouse. Networking/social time will begin at 6:00 and official business and program at 6:30.   Dr. Janine A. Parry, University of Arkansas professor of Political Science and Director of the Arkansas Poll, will be our guest speaker. Dr. Parry will share the latest findings of the 2011 Arkansas Poll and discuss the current state of politics in the State and Nation.  RSVP via Facebook.

Holiday Party
Instead of our traditional Holiday Party, we have decided to make our celebration more serve driven, by assisting Peace at Home Family Shelter at their annual Santa Sack holiday event.    Santa Sack is an opportunity to support women and children who have successfully left abusive living arrangements. These families often struggle financially and the moms worry that their children will not have a Christmas because they simply cannot afford to buy presents.

Join your fellow Washington County Democrats as volunteer for this special program.  They need our help anytime between 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 9th.  To register to volunteer please respond to this e-mail.  After our service project, we will proceed to Legacy Blues Club for some social time.   We encourage you to participate in the great opportunity.

Meet and Greet with Ken Aden

Take an opportunity to meet with 3rd Congressional District candidate, Kenneth Wade Aden, on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, at 6:30pm.   The event is a low-key affair where you can meet with Aden and get the know the man who wants to be your next Congressman. It's the perfect opportunity to find out his policy positions and get to know him on a more personal level as he works to become your next representative.  Light food and drinks will be provided.  More information on Facebook.
