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.

    Coweta County, GA Focus

    From the Coweta Democratic Party

    The Democratic Party has been so successful in improving our lives, that sometimes people forget what we have accomplished that makes life better.

    • The Democratic Party members are the people who brought you a minimum wage and the promise of prevailing local wages, 8-hour workday in a safe environment, unemployment benefits, and workers compensation when things go wrong.

    • The Democratic programs of the Federal Home Loan Program, Water Quality Act, and Rural Electrification Act brought ownership of a home with utilities within reach of most of us.

    • Democrats awarded veterans G. I. student benefits, home loans, and health care they so richly deserve.

    • Democrats created plans, such as Head Start, Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Guaranteed Student Loan Program have helped us raise and educate our children.

    • Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Securities and Exchange Act help us enjoy a secure old age.

    • Democrats brought many of us our very right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Amendment and Voting Rights Act of 1965.

    We must continue to fight groups who are trying to destroy all of these benefits that we take for granted now.


    The Coweta County, Georgia Democratic Party's regular monthly meeting is the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 am (come at 9:30 for breakfast) at the Westside Restaurant on Temple Avenue in downtown Newnan.

    Chattahoochee Hill Country

    Chattahoochee Hill Country (CHC) is a 65,000 acre area southeast of Atlanta. It is one of the last undeveloped and rural areas located within 30 minutes of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the busiest airport in the world. It includes rolling hills, streams, forests and farms and a population of about 3,000 people.

    The residents of CHC want to retain the natural beauty of this unspoiled area, yet realize that development is inevitable. We seek two goals: to preserve our rural vistas and heritage (about 60% of the land) and to concentrate sustainable development primarily along South Fulton Parkway, the major connection with Atlanta.

    “There is no heavier burden than a great opportunity.”

    We have the opportunity to “do it right” by preserving natural resources and creating communities which will enrich future generations of residents. We know we do not want suburban sprawl which contributes to global climate change and which hinders the building to real community.

    Hours spent driving from one place to another prevents people from being neighbors and establishing friendships within the community. Part of our CHC rural heritage is “neighbor helping neighbor.” As new neighborhoods are developed, we would like that heritage transformed to “neighbors being friends with neighbors.”
