Santa Fe Ward Organizing Meeting

young-leadershipRetake Our Democracy’s Tenth Action Team is a strategy to encourage involvement in local politics, beginning with working at the Ward and County levels to reinvigorate local political discourse and action. Susan Popovich is heading up this effort and is holding a meeting this Thursday evening, details below.  There are a number of actions she is axing you take before the meeting. Many Wards do not ever meet and many Ward Chairs do not even respond to inquiries. This is something we plan to change by organizing now, identifying people who want to run for Ward Chair or Vice Chair in inactive, unresponsive Wards and then use the Ward framework for political engagement, education and activism.  See below.

Ward & County Activism Meeting
December 15, 6pm-7:30pm
Center for Progress & Justice at 1420 Cerrillos Road. 
Email susanpop@aol.com prior to 12/15.

 

Actions to Take Before the Meeting.  Before the meeting, if at all possible, it would be good if you could Identify which Ward you live in. To do so go to: https://voterview.state.nm.us/VoterView/RegistrantSearch.do

Input your address and birthdate in the online form and click on “Search”. The page that pops up is your Voter Registration information. Your Precinct is listed. Once you know your Precinct, use the list to identify your Ward.

Call your Ward Chair. Go to: https://retaketheroundhouse.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/ward_chairs_vice_chairs_2015_2016.pdf.  Ask if they hold regular meetings, ask when the next meeting is, ask what have they done to get people active and engaged in their Ward. Take notes as there will be an opportunity to discuss this at the meeting. I will be gathering the data as it will be useful as we implement the Plan.

Begin making a list of active Democrats you know that live around you. One activity in January will be to call them and others to attend their Ward meeting where they will elect the Ward Officers. A goal of the Plan is to elect activists and progressives as Ward Officers, re-energize the Ward leadership and members, and to impact the Democratic Party at the County level.
