    My husband and I recieved the “vote by mail” application from you today. Both of the postage paid envelopes were sealed shut. I can’t imagine many will make it back if they are all sealed. Thought you might want to know.

    Hi Duval Democrats,

    I forgot to mention in my last posting that the Poll Watcher recruitment drive is an activity lead by the Duval County Democratic Black Caucus in alliance with the DEC. With so many of us wearing so many “hats”, it’s hard to remember which group is leading what….sorry for any miscommunication my last posting may have caused. t’s Interesting however, that most of the Black Caucus members working the Poll Watcher initiative are also members of the DEC, Senior Caucus and DWIN! So, it’s all good. We’re all in the Democratic Party Family! Let’s win this thing in May – a Blue Victory for Duval Democrats!!!

    Dear Party Faithful:

    While we finalize our county-wide strategy for helping Democrats win in May Elections, we wanted to get a head start on one major need. We need the names and general data on members who would like to serve as Poll Watchers in Early Voting or on Election Day? We will have one/two training sessions for the volunteers.

    Our goal is to protect our voters against any form of voter intimidation, misinformation or any other circumstance that may occur at the Polls. We need to cover at least 18 sites during Early Voting (May 2 – May 17) and 199 on Election Day (May 19). Please volunteer. We need you!

    Our Districts, Democratic Clubs, Caucuses and Organizations are asked to provide data on 7-10 people. Please send the following data to Marcelle Bessman by April 18. The earlier we receive the names and data, the better. Groups may prefer to have their members reply directly. That works for us, too.

    Full name
    Voter Registration # OR DOB
    Home address
    Contact phone #

    Marcelle’s e-mail is Marcelle@duvaldemocrats.org.

    We need everyone’s support in District IV for Ramon Day’s candidacy for City Council. Ramon is a strong candidate running against a Republican insider. Let’s get out the vote!

    I am amazed of what the Duval County Democrats have done in the last several elections, in my opinion it has been electifying. Voters, Incumbents, and candidates have seen the party step up their game. Duval Democrats are everywhere volunteering, establishing caucuses that support the political interest throughout the city, and changing the paradigm of the local party’s call to action, way to go Duval Dems way!!!!.

    Duval County Democratic Black Caucus continues to support Party candidates for office so that we can take control of City Council and won the Mayor, Sheriff and Supervisor of Elections Office as well. Thus far, we’re leading voter turnout!

    Could you please post and push out via email all the Crist vs Scott debates? Time, where to view them, etc. It would be so helpful because people need to see who these are, not just the partisan ads flooding TV. Thanks!

    Arlington / Southside Democratic Club Announcement
    Arlington / Southside Democrats Unite! I am looking to restart the Arlington / Southside Democratic Club of Jacksonville. Right now I’m looking for acting officers and founding members to prepare for an October general meeting at the Regency Library rotating with the Southside Library each month. The goal is to join together with other like minded Democrats for fun, activism, camaraderie, and action for our communities. Like the Beaches Democratic Club we want to form a strong organization that represents the individual Democratic voter that feels overwhelmed by the highly financed local GOP that acts in the name of corporate interests at the expense of small businesses and local community interests. Contact me today by email through arlingtonsouthsidedemocraticclub@yahoo.com or 904-307-4186.
