May 23 Meeting
We had a spirited, fun meeting, as usual. We heard from the founders of Retake our Democracy. We got updates from some elected officials, including the mayor, a municipal judge, a school board member, a state representative (and majority House Whip), and representatives from Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small’s field office. Several candidates who will be on the ballot in either 2019 or 2020 spoke about their campaigns. We learned about a very important bill that could stop a disastrous war with Iran (HR 2354)! Among other topics, we heard about Mexican wolves, received an update from the Democratic Party of Doña Ana County, we heard what SWEC is doing to stop the border wall building, and learned about ways to move away from fossil fuel generation.
You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap is posted here.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, June 27, 2019, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
There is no Unified Action for May.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their June 13, 2019 meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee.
