After a wonderful Labor Day weekend of travel to Mora County for the Wagon Mound Bean Day Festival Parade, and to Santa Fe for the Central Labor Council Labor Day Barbecue I’m happy to give everyone an update at our Fall SCC Meeting this weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn in Las Cruces!
First, registration will be available Friday evening from 6-8 pm, as well as Saturday morning from 10 am–12 pm, and proxy votes will be accepted. There will be a County Chair and Vice Chair meeting in the Antigua Room from 11:30 – 12:00, as well as a poolside breakfast hosted by Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Jon Hendry from 9:30 am to 11:00 am, free of charge! The Budget and Finance Committee will also be hosting a community service project to benefit the Jardín de los Niños of Las Cruces. Democrats are known for their commitment to serving our neighbors, and the Budget and Finance Committee is proud to host this service project as a part of its mission to serve.
We ask that as a part of your attendance at the SCC meeting, you donate an item to benefit the children served by Jardín de los Niños. Often times, families arrive at Jardín for assistance with little more than the clothes on their backs. Jardín de los Niños needs donations for everything such as art supplies, diapers, shoes, clothing, food, and books.
These types of donations help meet their specific and immediate needs while also keeping their classrooms stocked with fun and educational materials for the kiddos.
Meeting agenda and details are available here online, and will be available in Las Cruces.
We also are very proud to hold our 3rd Annual Rising Star Dinner, featuring the Hon. Julián Castro, as our keynote speaker. Castro delivered a dynamic speech when he delivered the keynote address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, so make sure to get your tickets today because seating is limited! Tickets are available by calling the DPNM Office at 505.358.5384, emailing Scott Tillman at Scott@nmdemocrats.org, or by clicking here.
We look forward to very active and productive week for Democrats in New Mexico, and I look forward to seeing you this weekend!
In your service,
Debra A. Haaland
Democratic Party of New Mexico
