We need a large turnout so please make special plans to drop by and have some BBQ, baked goodies, and bid on silent auction items. Visit with local organizations and Dems and Indies from Parker and counties contiguous. You can get registered to vote, or you can write a letter to soldiers overseas. You can meet other like-minded individuals. You can do your own research on the candidates and not depend on what others tell you about them.
Bring your questions and mingle with the candidates and local Democrats and Independents as we kick-off the 2010 Primary Election Season.

If you have something of value you'd like to donate to the silent auction or baked goodies, please contact me immediately at 817-657-4578. The rally costs are nearly $3,000, and we appreciate any amount you can donate to help defray our expenses. (See the figures below). Please do not send corporate checks or cash.
