August 22 Meeting
We had a spirited, informative, and fun meeting. We heard from Protect the Promise, an organization committed to defending core programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. David Greenberg gave us the latest about our Community Schools. We were treated to two minutes from quite a few candidates running for offices such as city council, senate, school board, municipal judge, and mayor. We got great updates about, among other things, EPE, SWEC, DPDAC, ProgressNowNewMexico, SNMNP, and LCPS (enough acronyms for you?). Then, a happy gasp ran through the room as US Representative Xochitl Torres tiptoed in quietly and sat beside her husband, Nathan. It was great to hear from Xoch – as she has been coming to PVA for over 15 years!
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, September 26, 2019, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
