First Coast Women Democrats C & C (Cocktails & Conversation!)

The elections are heating up! Help us welcome an excellent 2014 candidate for Duval County Soil and Water Conservation, District, Group 3, Shannon Blankinship, and Amber Holland, the Regional Field Director for the “Charlie Crist for Gove...rnor” Campaign. Shannon holds a B.S. in Natural Resources and Environmental Economics from Purdue University and a Doctor of Law from Florida Coastal School of Law, receiving the Environmental Certificate and Pro Bono Certificate while there. She is currently the Outreach Director at St. Johns Riverkeeper and has nearly a decade of experience with environmental work. "Florida is blessed with rivers, creeks, lakes and marshes. This community's foundation is defined by the St. Johns River, yet we've allowed it to deteriorate on our watch.” Learn what she would like to do now to protect our waters for future generations.

Amber will share what’s happening & how to help “Team Charlie.” A graduate of West Chester University of Pennsylvania in Communication Studies, Amber comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in politics to head up this team, as an Organizer for Florida New Majority, Spring Trainer/State Media Coordinator for OFA 4.0, an Obama 2012 Field Organizer in Daytona Beach, and Special Events Coordinator for Mayor Brown's Campaign. She caught the campaign "bug" while helping her mom get elected for City Treasurer; now she is helping to possibly elect our next governor.

Ask some friends to join you August 12th at First Coast Women Democrats! There are no dues, and Happy Hour discounts are from 4-8pm (extended to 8pm just for us!) $5 list martinis, $2 well & domestic beer, $3 call, import beer & house wine, plus an excellent Tapas menu for those with an appetite after work.
