Putting His Money Where His Mouth Is - Gov. Howard Dean
In case you haven't read today's Omaha World Herald , Governor Dean has followed up on his promise to the NDP and has made our state one of the first 8 states to receive direct assistance from the DNC.
"Howard Dean came through for the Nebraska Democratic Party.
Although officials of the state party had predicted more, it will get at least $120,000 this year to help organize grass-roots groups in all of Nebraska's 93 counties.
The hope is to rejuvenate the state party and get local Democrats elected. It is part of the national party chairman's efforts to make Democrats competitive in all 50 states, including GOP-dominated ones such as Nebraska.
‘We're ecstatic. This is the first time the national party has even done anything more than simply fly over our state,' said Barry Rubin, executive director of the state party."
When Chairman Dean was elected he said that "...Election by election, state by state, precinct by precinct, door by door, vote by vote, we're going to take this country back for the people who built it."
In order for us to build 21st century organization, we need you to help us build it.
This blog, this website, this Party -- none of it works without you.
We need You to be our Communications Directors by emailing out talking points and research to counteract the GOP's lies and distortions.
We need You acting as Field Organizers by using the new "Event Center" tool to organize rallies and house parties to help build a new community among Nebraska Democrats.
Your community, your neighbors, your Party needs you now more than ever.
As the saying goes, "you can't govern if you don't win -- and you can't win if you don't show up." So help us by showing up at your local NDP organizational meetings and volunteer to help us take back the state.
