Happy New Year!
It's a new year, a new congress, and the beginning of the 2019—2020 election cycle. Two years ago we were devastated and facing an uncertain future. Now the storm clouds we saw in September of 2016 show signs of breaking up as we ride the blue wave into the 2020 elections. 2018 was a good start; let's dive right in and keep the momentum going: Keep the House, take the Senate, and oust the impostor in the White House.
Stand and Speak
From Our Platform
Democrats understand responsible fiscal stewardship is key to American democracy and to the country’s long-term economic prosperity. We believe that by making those at the top and the largest corporations pay their fair share we can pay for ambitious progressive investments that create good-paying jobs and offer security to working families without adding to the debt. This stands in contrast to Donald Trump, whose plans could add more than $30 trillion to the debt and who casually suggests defaulting on America’s debt, ending more than 200 years in which the full faith and credit of the United States has been sacrosanct.
We will also ensure that new spending and tax cuts are offset so that they do not add to the nation's debt over time. We will tackle waste, fraud, and abuse to make sure government dollars are spent wisely and efficiently. Democrats believe that we should not be contracting, outsourcing, or privatizing work that is inherently governmental in nature, including postal services, school services, and state and local government services. We are committed to a strong, effective, accountable civil service, delivering the quality public services Americans have every right to expect.
Democrats believe that, in general, the most effective way to identify problems facing our country and develop good solutions is by enacting evidence-based public policy. We recognize the value of data in allowing us to count and carefully consider the needs of different communities. That is why we will preserve and enhance the integrity and accuracy of the census and the American Community Survey (ACS). We will equip the Census Bureau with the resources needed to prepare for and conduct a cost effective, complete and accurate census, as well as improve counting segments of the population that are historically and persistently undercounted, specifically communities of color, immigrants, LGBT people, young children, those with disabilities, and rural and low-income populations. We will also maintain the legal requirement for the public to participate and be counted."

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU!
What a great event the Lincoln-Obama dinner was last Saturday night in Lake Havasu. We had ticket sales for 101 people, the food was great as were the servers and cook. The room was awesome and the Gateway Band was wonderful.
A great big out-of-this-world thank you to the MCDCC events committee: Danny, Ginny, Deni and Marianne, and to the officers and people of the Lake Havasu Democratic Association; and to our speakers, Carol Comito and Dr. David Brill. Another thank you to the District for the raffle prizes — what a wonderful, awesome job by all!
And then there was the band, "Gateway Band" — weren't they just wonderful? I, personally, loved the "special" song they did for us. We are going to try to book them for our annual picnic!
As soon as Danny Baker finalizes the event's records,we will report the results to you.
From my heart and from my heart full of pride in you all, as chair of MCDCC — thank you!
