We had our first general meeting in person this week. We were so happy to be together and to welcome quite a few new members! Assemblymember-elect Grace Lee joined us to share her plans for the future and made a request for volunteers for this Saturday, November 19th to give out turkeys with Vision Urbana (see below for details). We also heard from Allison Greenfield, who is running for Manhattan Civil Court Judge. District Leader, Caroline Laskow, also encouraged us to GOTV for Senator Raphael Warnock’s runoff election in Georgia on December 6th. See below for opportunities to participate.
We also held our annual Executive Committee elections. With large consensus, the current executive positions were re-elected for another year. We added a third VP position per our bylaws:
Marion Riedel, President
Julie Huang, Vice-President
Sandra Strother-Ribeiro, Vice-President
Melissa Shiffman, Vice-President
Kenny Wind, Treasurer
