KSFR is such an important part of Retake Our Democracy as they allow us to air the voices and perspectives that are not often heard in mainstream media. Time to support their great work. So, when Retake airs in 10 minutes, please be listening and as soon as we ask, start calling: 428-1393 and show your support for KSFR and for Retake Our Democracy.
I will be sending out another blog with content later today or tomorrow morning ….and you won’t want to miss it, but for now just this reminder. Paul
Retake Our Democracy on KSFR, Saturday, March 23, 8:30 a.m. We will be in Pledge Week mode and I will do a live show with Hannah Laga Abram, a student leader of the Santa Fe Sunrise Movement (Green New Deal) and the student strike For the Future last Friday. Also in studio will be Rep. Andrea Romero and City Councilor Renee Villarreal. We will talk about student advocacy, the Green New Deal, and how we might be able to advance GND principles at a state and local level. Since it is Pledge Week, we’d really like to have a ton of calls and donations between 8:30-9 a.m. this Saturday. I don’t know about you, but it is really hard for me to remember to listen in to the show. It is always 9:30 and Roxanne and I go…”we forgot to listen….” So how about you all put 8:30 Saturday in your phone alarm and then call in to the studio at 428-1393 and make a donation. It is always great to have a bunch of Retake supporters making calls and contributions.
Saturday, March 23, 10 a.m. at Ortiz Middle School. Santa Fe County Election of State Central Committee Members and County Chair/Vice Chair. Santa Fe County Central Committee members will convene to elect a County Chair and Vice Chair, as well as 51 members of the State Central Committee of the Democratic Party. If you are a County Central Committee member please plan to attend and vote. Estelle Berger and Joe Maestas are unopposed in running for chair and vice chair respectfully, but the election of SCC members is important as they are the body that sets state Party policy, approves the platform, and votes on who will represent NM on the DNC. Click here to review a list of candidates for State Central Committee who have submitted bios to the County Democratic Party leadership. You will find several candidates from Retake leadership on the list (including Roxanne and I). I suspect that there are more candidates planning to run. If you are interested in running, contact Estelle Berger Interim County Chair at Estelle.email@example.com.
