I was a volunteer at last night’s City Dems trivia night – I originally was selling the 50-50 raffle tickets, but got drafted to be a judge. (The judge position was a lot easier – haha) It was nice to see so many politicos and so much support of the Democratic faction here. I got mentoring advice from former Senators Maida Coleman and Robin Wright-Jones, talked child-rearing with Treasurer Tishaura Jones, discussed board bills with Alderpeople Jennifer Florida and Craig Schmidt, and asked Comptroller Darlene Green about the Veolia contract. It was also nice to re-affirm relationships with the many other electeds and activists throughout the City. Those ties can strengthen my efforts in the 8th ward in advocating for you and our community. The 8th ward always purchases a table – let me know if you are interested in this event for next year!
