North Oak Cliff Democrats

Dallas, Texas 75208

January 26th Virtual Happy Hour

So far, none of our elected state officials is available, unfortunately. However this is a great opportunity to discuss how to lobby this year's legislative session, participate in committee testimony, etc. Also a good time to reflect on how Biden should approach managing the Pandemic, patching the holes that Trump put in the ship of state, and move a progressive agenda forward.

Now is a time to participate in and engage with elected officials at all levels of government. For example, local government is struggling with financial issues due to the pandemic, drop in sales taxes, need to fund testing/vaccination sites, etc. At the state level we have in addition, the post-census redistricting, struggles over school funding, the ever popular attempts by the right to ban abortion/birth control/LGBT.

We also have both a Dallas municipal and DISD election in May. Filing has begun and the deadline is February 12th. DISD is electing trustees for Districts 1(far north Dallas), 3(northeast Dallas), and 9(southeast Dallas). Most of us Oak Cliff folks live in DISD District 7 (Ben Mackey) who is not up for re-election until May 2022.

Next virtual Pints and Politics Happy Hour: Tuesday January 26th 5:30-6:30 PM. Zoom invite will be sent out to the email list, so make sure you are signed up!
