Ferndale Area Democratic Club: Monthly Meeting

In light of the fact that our January 16th meeting is taking place on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, we have a guest presentation on the significance of the passage of the Promote the Vote ballot proposals of 2018 and this year’s general election.  Kevin Deegan-Krause, Professor of Political Science at Wayne State University, will speak on what these victories mean for the preservation and enhancement of voting rights in Michigan. *A friendly reminder that if you have not yet paid your $10.00 club dues for 2023, time is of the essence! Our Treasurer, Josh Miller, will be collecting dues at both our January and February meetings. If for any reason you cannot make it to either of these meetings, then please contact Josh by email (joshjmiller82@gmail.com) to make payment arrangements. Anyone who considers themself to be a Democrat may attend our monthly meetings; but only those who keep up-to-date on dues may participate in voting on club business (including the June election of the e-board).*
