Straight from the Milwaukee Drinking Liberally blog:
Hello! We are excited to report that Mike Tate, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, will be our guest host at next Wednesday’s Drinking Liberally! That’s on October 20, just under two weeks before the general election. I know we’re anxious about that, so come find out what Mike has to say about getting us through to the other side with victory by our candidates!
According to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, “Tate served as the Deputy State Director of America Coming Together in 2004. He was hired as the State Director of Dean for America. He served as the Regional Political Director for AFSCME Council 40, and was the State Field Director for Falk for Governor. He was a Statewide Student Organizer for the 2000 Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Directly prior to assuming the role of chair of the state party, he served as the Executive Director of Fair Wisconsin and then the Executive Director of Advancing Wisconsin.”
Come with your questions for Mike, and find out how help win the November elections for us — lest Drinking Liberally become a sort of support group as it was during the dark days of the Bush II administration.
*** South-side Milwaukee needs a School Board Director! ***
Terry Falk, Milwaukee Public Schools Board Director for Bay View and surrounding area, is vacating his seat in order to run for the city-wide seat. (Curiously, he’s running for the seat so that he can eliminate it!) As a result, we need someone a progressive-minded individual to run for the Board of Directors. Can it be you?
This is a paid position, has fantastic health insurance, and has all its meetings at night, meaning you can still work your day job. Talk to me (Jason) if you’re interested. I will hook you up with the right people to talk to next.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday. As usual, we meet at:
441 E. Lincoln Ave.
Milwaukee (Bay View)
7 PM to 9 PM
We’ll be just inside the door to the, er, right.
