Update: Many Take Back Congress Meetings

This morning, I wrote about the opportunity to start volunteering for Take Back Congress - New York and Citizen Action of New York, referring to an August 8 meeting in Ithaca. Well, it turns out that there are at least two other meetings available for people in our district to attend. One reader sent in a note about a meeting in Utica:

"August 6th at 4:30 there will be a Progressive Call to Action Meeting to be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church ( an independent endeavor not associated with the church itself -space has been rented there) 10 Higby Rd., Utica."

The Cayuga Coalition for Peace has also sent out an email about a meeting in Auburn on Thursday, August 10th at 7:00 PM at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 607 N. Seward Avenue.

There's also a meeting in Cortland, hosted by the Cortland Progressives at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 3 Church Street, on Monday, August 7th at 7:00 PM.

All this work, I'd like to point out, is being done completely independently of the Michael Arcuri for Congress campaign. It's amazing how people will come together when faced with a candidate as dangerous as right wing Republican Ray Meier.

Majority Leader John Boehner is coming to Cortland on Aug. 14, to host a fundraiser for Ray Meier.

At 9 AM there is a Chamber of Commerce meeting at the Community Restaurant, 22 Main St., Cortland.

This meeting will be followed by a $125 fundraiser at 10:30 AM. Aug. 14 is also the birthday of Soc. Security. There will be a rally of Meier opponents/Boehner critics. Boehner says that privatizing Soc. Sec. will be his first bill in the House next session.
