Democrats Making News

Democrats Win With a Ground Game... Will you play or sit it out?

There are all kinds of Democrats:

*  those who do nothing in an midterm election year - not even

*  those who vote, but do nothing else

*  those who vote, AND donate a few hours of their time to help Democrats win!

Sadly, there are far more in the first group of Democrats than there are in the last. 

Can we change that?  Is it up to somebody else to do it? Of course we can change that, it's up to us, and it's not complicated!

Just the number of people in this e-newsletter universe could flip those numbers.  All it takes is for a lot of people to give up just a little of their time.  

It's highly rewarding, and, yes, fun to get together with some fellow Democrats to spend a few hours helping make voter contact on behalf of our candidates.  Please don't sit this one out.  Get in on the ground game and let's elect some Democrats!

Call 323-8683 or respond to this email and say, "yes, I'll play!"

Phone Bank & Chili Feed!

Helping our candidates make contact with voters is the most important thing we can do for them as we enter the home stretch to Nov. 4.  So please plan to join us Tuesday, October 7, to make some phone calls followed by a fall chili feed! 

We will be calling for a number of our local candidates for city

It's Time Get Committed!

Committed to Vote Early, That Is...


A message from the Nevada State Democratic Party

In 23 days early voting starts and we can finally have our voices heard! The Koch Brothers' money trying to buy our election won’t matter. The only thing that matters is that we get out and vote! 


Commit 2 Vote during early vote now and make sure that Democrats turn out this election!


All the political pundits and all the Republican bigwigs think that Democrats are going to snooze on this election. They think we won’t have our voice heard.


Well, they’re wrong. We know how dangerous the Republican agenda is: allowing insurance companies to discriminate against people with preexisting conditions; turning back the clock on women’s healthcare; and, protecting their billionaire buddies like the Koch Brothers at the expense of working class families.

Show the pundits and prognosticators that they’re wrong. Commit 2 Vote during early voting now and make sure that Democrats turn out this election!



Flores Highlights Education, Visiting Nevada Schools and Universities

This week, Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada, continued her statewide discussion on the future of 

Flores has visited numerous schools to talk to educators, parents and students about her plan to tackle Nevada’s education funding problem and securing the brightest future possible for our students.

Sandra Hernandez, parent of a high school senior, said: “Lucy knows about the kinds of struggles that families face and how education is the key to success and to getting a good paying job.”

Flores emphasizes these four points as a start for changing the status quo of education in Nevada:

  • Strengthen education preschool through college
  • Increase funding to K-12 schools
  • Make higher education more affordable
  • Have fewer, better standardized tests focused on critical thinking, not rote memorization

This week, Lucy has or will meet with educators, parents and students at schools in Reno, Las Vegas, and at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and the University of Nevada Reno.

Lucy Flores is the Assemblywoman for District 28. She is running for Lieutenant Governor to bring a voice to our state government that is too often missing. As the daughter of immigrants, she grew up in a challenging community in North Las Vegas. Through her own hard work and the investment of people who believed in her, she earned a GED, and eventually a law degree from the UNLV Boyd School of Law. Now she represents the community she grew up in, and knows firsthand the difference making an investment in people can make. Ensuring that every Nevadan has the opportunity to succeed is what continues to inspire her public service.


Washoe County Commissioner Kitty Jung is up for re-election in District 3 and she needs your help!

The plan is to walk District 3 to ensure the only Democrat on the commission will be retained.

We need man/woman power to make this happen!  We will be walking every Saturdayand Sunday following Labor Day, if you can volunteer a few hours knocking on doors, phone banking or dropping literature  please call, Hawah at 775-742-4927 for walk meet up times and locations.
