We've been raising money offline and online and at this point have raised 79% of our fundraising goal. Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed!

We are going to Philadelphia with lots of energy and enthusiasm. Our recent People's Assembly generated great ideas and three issues were prioritized: getting the money out of politics, election reform and climate change. We will be forming working groups to come up with a plan on how we can effectively address these issues locally as well as statewide and nationally. Please let us know if you are interested in being on one of the working groups.

We have three members of our local team heading to Chicago for the People's Summit this weekend and we look forward to getting their input when they return.

As most of you probably know Bernie will be addressing supporters through a live stream on Thursday at 8:30pm. You can go to this link to RSVP: https://go.berniesanders.com/page/s/live?source=fb...

We remain excited about the possibilities for progressives in the coming year. We are looking for candidates to run locally - for Charter Review Board District 4, Hospital Board Northern District 1 and County Commission Districts 3 and 5. If you've ever thought of running, NOW is the time. We have an infrastructure in place that can support you. Let's capitalize on the momentum Bernie has built and get some progressives on the ballot here at home.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

The People's Movement is growing! On June 17-19th, the People's Summit will take place with the goal of creating a People's Agenda that is actually responsive to the needs of the majority. Learn more at: www.thepeoplessummit.org. (Deanie will be attending.)


On July 23rd in Philadelphia The People's Convention will convene to establish a sustainable, grassroots movement to increase issue awareness and provide channels of direct engagement with the political process for all of us - www.thepeoplesrevolution.org. (All of the Sarasota/Manatee delegates will attend.)

We want to engage residents of Sarasota and Manatee Counties in this process and will be hosting a People's Assembly at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center to gather input for the People's Agenda and brainstorm how we support local movement-building efforts. We hope to see you there.

If you can't attend but have information you would like to submit to the Democratic Party Platform Committee, you can submit written or video testimony through this link: https://demconvention.com/platform/ They will be meeting in Orlando on July 8 & 9.

Sarasota Delegates will be arriving in Philly before the Convention to participate in a number of movement building meetings and marches including the Clean Energy March being sponsored by Americans Against Fracking. We'll be keeping a video record of our activities and posting regular updates on the Sarasota/Manatee for Bernie Facebook page.

The platform committee has shot down all of Bernie's proposed planks. Give them hell in there and fight for us as I will be doing on the outside. #SeeYouInPhilly
