She’s funny. She’s bright. She’s been the incredibly hard-working sparkplug of many successful Democratic campaigns. Our October speaker is one of Michigan’s top professional political operatives: the one and only Christy Jensen! Christy is the Statewide GOTV (Get out the Vote) Director for the One Campaign (the Democratic Party’s coordinated campaign for the state slate).
Christy will share the plans and schedule for GOTV and go into the strategies. She will address how we need to frame the issues for our most effective appeal. Christy will share how the OPHW can help out and she will take your questions on the state of Democratic politics in Michigan.
Join us and bring a friend, and maybe a snack to share if you have the time.
August Meeting • Summer Picnic
August 16 • 6:00 PM
Shepherd Park • 24198 Church St, Oak Park
Fellow Democrats, Valued Independents, and Concerned Citizens:
We all have been anxious and stressed-out about the beating democracy has taken in our state and country. And we’ve worked hard to resist the undoing of important rights and safeguards.
That’s why we plan to chill out on Thursday, August 16, with a picnic at Shepherd Park (Shelter #1) at the corner of Church Street and Northfield Boulevard in Oak Park. Let’s celebrate our friendships and the good in our communities and nation.
We’ll meet at 6 p.m. to take advantage of the last of the long summer days. The Oak Park/Huntington Woods Democratic Club will supply the food, and kids can enjoy corn hole, hula hoops and of course, the choo-choo train at the park.
Don’t expect any big speeches, but we have asked candidates to come and mingle, maybe even say a few words.
Feel free to invite a neighbor and bring your children!
