Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    Texas Focus: (CRITICAL!!!) Texas Board of Education

    This is a repeat from awhile back, but it remains a critical focus through November, so I will post it again from time to time. I should note that both of the two candidates below are excellent and seem to be doing well in their respective races:

    This comes from a Daily Kos diary:

    VOTE FOR CHANGE IN NOVEMBER - State Board of Education District 10 and District 5

    There is a way to change the direction of the Texas State Board of Education - and the states across the nation which are influenced by this board.

    The best way to change this direction is to support and elect the Democratic challengers in these races.

    District 10 - Dr. Judy Jennings. Judy Jennings is an expert in education policy and assessment, has worked at the Texas Education Agency, and is committed to educating Texas students for the 21st Century. Judy needs your support to win against Marsha Haney or Brian Russell.

    District 5 - Dr. Rebecca Bell-Metereau is an award-winning educator at Texas State University. She has always served her community, both locally and globally. She taught English and American studies in the Peace Corps and served as a French interpreter for U.S. Air Force relief flights in Chad, one of the ten poorest countries in the world. She was a Fulbright scholar and teacher in Senegal.

    Now get out there and vote in November!

    [NOTE: I have donated to both. These are among the most important races this year, though most people will ignore them]
