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.

    The National Jewish Democratic Council is the trusted voice and resource for Democratic office holders, candidates and party organizations to better understand and engage with the Jewish community. NJDC mobilizes the Jewish community and convenes opinion leadership to support the Democratic promise for all Americans. We look to our Jewish tradition to guide us on the issues of social and economic justice, religious pluralism and the peace and security of the State of Israel that will be the hallmark of our work.

    Weston Democratic Club:

    The Weston Democratic Club is the hub in our city for the national and state Democratic Party. Our city boasts a population of 50,000, evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. Our voting areas are divided into Precincts. Each precinct may be represented by one committee man and one committee woman. As a grassroots Democratic activist you are encouraged to become a committee man or woman in your precinct. This is a great way to communicate important information, generate excitement, and help get out the vote-all while getting to know your neighbors better!

    Our club is in the forefront of political activism in the city. We have many functions and are well known throughout the county. Our meetings have evolved as 'the place to see and be seen" in Broward County. Most candidates and elected officials visit Weston quite frequently and we have the chance to have our individual say in local, state and national politics.

    We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:30 P.M in the Bonaventure Town Center Club, located at 16690 Saddle Club Road (West of Bonaventure Blvd.).
