WZZM and the Super Duper Club – take a look at our first television interview.
You all in the Super Duper Club would have been proud of the Lansing contingent. Corey, Dani, Angelina, Amber, Brittany, Myranda, Chad, & Dakota represented the Super Duper Club with class Thursday at the State Capitol. They listened to Congressional Representatives, they spoke before committees, they gathered more signatures, they carried our petitions to the Democratic Party Headquarters and stated the case for the end to super delegates. For all of you who have spread the word, awaken the public, gathered petitions, and fought for our cause – we thank you. Yesterday was about ALL of us. We only carried the message that you all have helped to shape. And we remind you “We have more work to do!” Keep gathering names – we currently stand at 730 – we are shooting for 1000!
Don’t forget – Wednesday’s meeting of the Super Duper Club! If you haven’t been before and want to start now, great! Come on by there’s lots to do in achieving our goal of ENDING THE PRACTICE OF SUPER DELEGATES IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
To those who traveled to Lansing – you guys stole the show. Nice work. At the Capitol and at the Democratic HQ – this is how you change the world – one person at a time. I think you saw that with the reaction of the folks at the hearings to your speeches and petitions. People, sitting and listening, were moved by your knowledge, your presentations, and your message. And then when all of you fanned about the room and visited with students and adults present, and shared your own personal thoughts on the issue and gathered petition signatures, I do believe many people walked away with renewed hope in your generation. Many, I believe, see the Super delegate issue now in a whole new light. I was so very proud to be your teacher and your comrade on this crusade.
OK, enough of all the glad handing – we’ve got lots more work to do. Super delegates are still lurking out there in the dark shadows waiting to steal democracy from us all. So – it’s back to work. This must be a follow-up weekend. I need you to post to me the following as soon as you are able:
1 – All of those letters. Angelina including your petition intro. I will PDF them and get them up on our site. You need to tweak your letters and get them out to the paper, the gov, the delegates, and Howard Dean.
2 – Photos and movies – get them to me please. I will make copies.
3 – Business cards (relevant ones) – take the ones that you remember and post name address, email, phone, and a line about each individual. And if you had a good chat drop them an email.
4 – Thank you – Drop a quick thank you in the mail to anyone you deem appropriate – for listening to us.
People were on our side yesterday…make sure they know we appreciated the support, including Mr. Mieras – for backing us on our sojourn, and Gladys Mosher for being so much fun. And don’t forget our camera guy from Detroit. Please get around and thank all of these people – either online, over the cell, or in person.
Hey guys you really need to check out Bruce Griffin’s photography. Besides being a fan of the Super Duper Club, and a good guy, he is extremely talented. Here’s his website – it might be nice if you dropped him a line. He sent us some nice photos and joined us on the walk to the Party HQ.
…finally, wish Angelina “good luck” on her New York City – United Nations voyage next week – just another chapter on her changing the world – world tour. Angelina, don’t forget to awaken all those Yankees in NYC to the issue of Super delegates! AND HAVE FUN!!!!!
