Monthly meeting looks to the future
More than 40 GDCC members attended our monthly meeting on Nov. 10. The meeting was an open forum on what the Democratic Party needs to do to win back those Trump voters who have historically voted Democratic, but who opted for Donald Trump.
Specific ideas put forth included reaching out to working people. Liz Neumeier, in particular was eloquent on that point. “These are not people defending ‘white privilege,'” she said. “They are trying to provide for their families.”
Matt Murray, Liane Giunta and Chad Interrante stressed outreach to young people. Mike Wheeler echoed that point, noting that our leading candidates this year were 74 (Bernie Sanders) and 69 (Hillary Clinton) respectively.
Paul McGeary noted that President Obama had won because he was able to convey a message of hope for the future and that we needed to rekindle that hope.
This month on the Gloucester Democratic City Committee’s public access television program, Democratic Dialogue, host Matt Murray, chair of the Massachusetts Young Democrats, will interview the City Committees’ newest member, Lacy Cominsky, a community organizer and sustainability consultant who recently moved to Massachusetts from Texas with her husband and three young daughters, and presently works for Innovation House. They will discuss the recent election, Democratic core values, and the need for new directions for the Democratic Party.
Democratic Dialog airs on Cape Ann TV, Channel 12, on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 9:30 p.m. and repeats on Fridays at 4 p.m., Sundays at 7 p.m. and Thursdays at 9:30 p.m.
