Taxpayers supporting Republicans are like
chickens supporting Colonel Sanders!
MOPAG Meeting - Saturday, December 7th
Our next meeting is Saturday, December 7th at 1:30pm at the St. County Library headquarters on Lindbergh across from Plaza Frontenac. The door to the East room will open at 1pm.
As most of you know, Gov. Nixon called the legislature back into session this week to discuss how much money to offer Boeing to build a plant in St. Louis. Several legislators have told us that the session will probably run through Saturday. Our plan was to have some of them tell us what the opposition is going to throw at us again in the 2014 session that begins in early January. Rather than waiting until Friday to see if the session will run through the weekend, MOPAG board members met today (Tuesday) and reconfigured the plan somewhat. We will still describe and discuss some of the bills that the majority members of the legislature will propose in 2014. We will also have an opportunity to sign up to share our talents when it comes time to educate voters about those bills and our progressive response. Susan Cunningham will give a short presentation on linguist George Lakoff's advice to progressives on how to frame a message using our own values rather than repeating the language of conservatives.
Please join us at 1:30 (door opens at 1 p.m.) Saturday at the main St. Louis County library on Lindbergh across from Plaza Frontenac, just south of Clayton Rd.
If you have blankets, men's knit hats, mittens or socks to donate to St. Louis Homeless Winter Outreach, please bring them to the meeting. Susan C.
Please, pass this along to anyone interested in education, labor rights and other progress issues to come join us. Looking forward to seeing you.
