DFL Senior Caucus Chair

September 2022

Hi All,

The State Fair gathering went very well!

Volunteers seem to have had a good time talking (and listening) to voters about senior issues. Many people came into the booth to talk about their concerns. And, the state DFL Party told us they really appreciated the Senior Caucus volunteers being there to help!

Many thanks to Tim Bonham for organizing the volunteers to staff the DFL table for the Senior Caucus. Many thanks to volunteers: Tim Keane,  Greg Popowich, Mary Kay Higgins, Mary Bliesmer, Marcia Bailey, Norm Hanson, Margit Berg, Pat Kelly, Sandy Sandoval, Lawrence Sandoval, Susan Lane, Joanne Hedrick, Jonathan Norburg, Tim Bonham

Senior Caucus GOTV – The postcard writing campaign has begun! This is the first time the Senior Caucus is implementing a get-out-the-vote postcard and calling campaign throughout the 10 Senior Caucus Chapters statewide.  This is a pilot test for the midterm elections to see if the 10 Chapters can launch a grassroots effort among senior caucus members state-wide.  Assuming this works as planned, the 2024 grassroots postcard and calling effort will be bigger and better!

We will need your help!  Please contact your local Senior Caucus Chapter chair or email dflseniors@gmail.com to participate.  You can find the list of local Senior Caucus Chapters at https://www.dflseniors.org/state-board-chapters/chapters/

Don’t forget the next book club meeting is Sept 19, 11:00am until about 12:30pm, on the third Monday each month; look for the zoom link on the website dflseniors.org. The Sept. book is: Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution.  This selection is a light-hearted yet serious look at constitutional issues.
