Lois K. Herr

 

FLASH!

Don’t miss our Executive Committee Meeting on Wed., August 3rd at our office - 23 S 6th St, Lebanon, 7-9 pm.

 

SPECIAL GUESTS - MITCH KATES AND ANNE WAKABAYASHI

 

Where else can you hear a former wrestler named Jason the Terrible turned political wizard?

 

From Pittsburg to Boston to Florida to Georgia (the country), to Kosovo, To Maritius, and back to Pennsylvania, MITCH KATES has left a trail of amazing successes for city council members, county commissioners, mayors, prime ministers, and judges. Mitch knows how to find good candidates, organize, spend money wisely, and thus win.


One of PA’s “Rising Stars,” ANNE WAKABAYASHI is a talented operative and sharp strategist.  As Executive Director of EmergePA Anne now focuses on recruiting and preparing PA Democratic women to run for office. EmergePA doesn’t just recruit, it runs an intensive 7-month training program, which by the way graduated our own Laura Quick in the first class this year.]

 

A 2011 graduate of Juniata, Anne has already worked for campaigns at local and state level, including Judge Anne Lazarus’ successful bid for Superior Court in 2015.  She’s been political and communications director for the PA Senate Democratic Campaign Committee, and she knows how to raise money, having led the fundraising efforts for EqualityPA.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAMPAIGN IN LEBANON COUNTY

CITY

 

Hazel Diaz is running the Coordinated Campaign in Lebanon City. Look on the calendar for activities, which include phone banking, voter registration and even  “pokemon Go” sessions which will attract/trap potential voters to our headquarters!

 

Phonebanks are every Thursday from 5 until 8pm. We are hoping to have it as a potluck and have people bring food and drinks for the event (if they want).Contact Hazel, 304-0692, if you’d like to help.

 

COUNTY

 

If you’d rather help out somewhere elsewhere in the county, Click on Carla O , or call her at 503 840-2448. She’s in charge of the coordinated campaign for the non-Lebanon city parts of the county and has already set up a number of phone banks and other opportunities to support all of our great candidates.

 

CLINTON CAMPAIGN

 

The Clinton campaign is also staffing the county and our own Laura Quick is representing Lebanon County. Contact Laura if you can help.

¡FIESTA LATINA!

 

We need YOU!

 

VOLUNTEERS FOR THE FIESTA

 

We need your help! We can still use lots of volunteers for the Fiesta Latina on Saturday, August 27 from 11 AM to 4:00 PM for the 5th Annual Fiesta Latina! We can also use you from 9 AM to 11 AM to help set-up and/or from 4 PM to 6 PM to take down, if you can’t make it any other time. Lebanon County Democrats are hosting the event at Beautex Park, behind 12th and Willow Sts in Lebanon.

 

If you’ve volunteered before, you’ll know you’ll have a great time with a lot of free food, music, dancing, games for kids and prizes. We expect 800 people to attend and this is the biggest annual outreach event of the local Democratic Party.

 

We need you to take a shift at the Fiesta. None of the jobs require any special skills and you’ll be given all the information you need. Listed below are the job descriptions in case you’re wondering what’s involved. The jobs are pretty easy, though! Here’s how you can help:

 

Thursday, August 25, Time TBD

Stuff bags of info for our guests

 

Saturday, Aug 227

8:30 AM - 11 (and any time during this shift): Clean-up and set-up crew.

We need to start out with a clean park.  Then set up canopies, tables, chairs, and all

needed equipment.  

 

11:00 AM - 4:00 PM (any times you can spare):

Balloon maker (we have helium and 50 balloons)--probably 1-1.5 hours work

Greeters (hand out programs and direct attendees to the welcome booth where they will get their lunch and door prize tickets.)

Clean-up (ongoing)

Special Needs Volunteer (helping people in wheelchairs)

Popcorn machine operator and assistant

Game assistant (small children)

Bounce House Overseers -2 (We have one)

Welcome Booth - 2

 

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM LUNCH

Voter registration and Democratic Party and Campaign activities will be done by the Party and the Combined Campaign--they’ll need volunteers, too! Contact LCDC HQ or Hazel Diaz to help.

 

4:00 - 6:00 PM

Cleanup crew

 

If you can’t volunteer that day, there are other ways you can help.

If you have a canopy, we could really use it for the event.

If you’d like to contribute money, make checks out to the Hispanic Initiative of the LCDC or click here.

For more info, contact  Cesar F. Liriano

Pipeline News

 

Dear Concerned Citizens of Lebanon County - ALL MUST ATTEND and/or SUBMIT COMMENTS!!!

 

Remember Tuesday August 9 at 6:30 pm at the Lebanon Valley Expo Center at 80 Rocherty Rd., Lebanon, is the location of the PUBLIC HEARING to be held by PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on the state permit applications that, if approved, would allow the construction of Sunoco's 300-plus-mile Mariner East 2 pipeline project to proceed. These permits, if issued, would authorize Sunoco to engage in earth moving activities and cross hundreds of wetlands and streams across Pennsylvania, including private property and water resources in six municipalities in Lebanon County: Cornwall Borough and South Londonderry, South Annville, West Cornwall, South Lebanon and Heidelberg Townships.

 

Don't be fooled by the changing name that Sunoco gives this project, now called the "Pennsylvania Pipeline Project." This is the Mariner East pipeline project that will transport highly explosive Natural Gas Liquids -- propane, ethane and butane -- under high pressure from Ohio and Western PA to Marcus Hook, mostly for shipment overseas. The proposed project includes two pipelines -- a 20-inch and 16-inch -- to be constructed in, or parallel to, the same right-of-way as the existing Mariner East 1 pipeline.

 

For more information, details on the Public Hearings, and ways to send in email comments, please click on this link to see the ACTION ALERT:

http://act.halttheharm.net/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=19272

 

What should you say at the hearing? Talking Points are available at the link below and a copy is also attached. The Talking Points will help you prepare your comments to deliver at the public hearing and/or to send to DEP. The Talking Points were prepared by Mountain Watershed Association and the Clean Air Council.

http://www.mtwatershed.com/mariner-east-pipeline/

 

We know that Sunoco and the natural gas industry are encouraging pro-pipeline supporters to come out in force at these DEP hearings and to submit comments. We need to turn out regular citizens -- like yourselves --  who oppose the pipelines to show up at the August 9th public hearing. Invite your neighbors and friends and family to come with you on August 9th.

 

These are the most important steps you can take to protect streams and wetlands, property rights, health and safety in Lebanon County this summer: PLEASE ATTEND the Public Hearing. PLEASE TESTIFY at the Public Hearing. PLEASE SEND your comments to DEP by August 24, DEP's announced end of the public comment period.

 

NOTE: If you intend to speak at the public hearing, you should contact DEP by August 8th to sign up. Contact John Repetz at 717-705-4904 or at jrepetz@pa.gov. Speakers who do not register with DEP in advance may be able to speak, but only if there is time at the end of the evening. Speakers will be called in order of registration, so register soon.

 

One important comment you can make is to ask DEP to EXTEND the public comment period for another 30 days. We and others are still pouring through the thousands of pages of the permit applications and need more time to review this extensive and complicated project that will cross 17 counties. Your Lebanon County Commissioners and state Sen. Folmer already made this request on your behalf to allow meaningful public review. But Sunoco and its supporters are opposing this short 30-day extension request as a needless delay. Show your support for protecting property rights and the public health, safety and our environment by asking for this extended public comment period.

 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

FROM THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION!

Just like Hillary's theme, Bea and I were Stronger Together as we attended the Democratic National Convention.  We also saw Mark Singel, but couldn't all sit together.  Thank you to everyone for your votes and support for us to represent Lebanon County at this historic event.  We are so grateful and honored, and have great stories to tell.  In the interim, you can see photos and video clips of Pennsylvania casting our votes and the balloons dropping on Facebook, and please like our page.

https://www.facebook.com/LebanonPAforHillary2016/?fref=ts .  You can also watch a 45 minute video highlight of the entire convention.  After it was all over, Bea and I were invited to come on stage with the production crew.  What a way to end the Convention.  We are pumped and ready to work hard to elect Hillary Clinton as our next President of the United States of America!

 

Sincerely,

Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz

LEBANON COUNTY FAIR

Thank you to those who staffed the Democratic booth at this year’s county fair--not an easy task in a year when political tensions run high.  Once again,our volunteers stood tall and reflected both the inclusive spirit of the Democratic Party and our pride in our candidates.  It was only twelve years ago that Democrats first made their appearance at the County Fair, which had previously been the sole province of the Republicans.  We were considered outsiders at first, but have now gained not only acceptance by all fair goers, but a special welcome from Democratic fair visitors.  So to the fair staff alumni of 2016--you were great and you did our party proud!

 

We don’t know everyone who volunteered, since many just showed up, but here are the names we know about and want to thank: John Harvey, Lorraine Scudder, Franz Messerschmidt, Diane Weigard, Dan Sidelnick, Hazel Diaz, Lawrence Funck, Barb Bentz, Elizabeth Kendall, Jack and Kathy FItz, Laura Quick, Paul Heise, Bobbie Warshaw, Pam Leahey, John Kearney, Kathy Eschenfelder, John Winicki, Alan Olson, Pam Bishop, Doug Lorenzen, Laura Shemick, Barb Lauver, Jake Long, Pat Stephens, Dave Haller, Marilyn Gunden, Joel Smith, Kim Ebright, Lois Herr, and Ellen Gecker.

 

By the way, someone vandalized our life-size stand-up Hillary Clinton on the night she gave her acceptance speech. A new Hillary sign is coming in in the next few days. Someone said they saw someone who seemed a little high or drunk that night and was suspicious that he might have been the perpetrator. The Republicans who worked their booth seemed pretty polite--at least the ones we saw--so we think it was just some jerk. Don’t be surprised, though, if vandalism, sign damage, protests and anger escalate this year. After all, the nationwide supply of testosterone is under attack from an insidious enemy! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRIDEFEST IN HARRISBURG

This was a wonderful experience for those of us who were privileged to work the Democratic booth, which we shared with the Dauphin County Dems. There were a number of Lebanonians there and they were glad to see us. It felt like seeing the future: a world where people can be and act and look like whatever they want to be, feel pride in it and lift us all up in the bargain. We felt a revived sense of hope at the PrideFest and we hope we will have a presence next year, too. Thanks to Cornell Wilson and to Joel Smith and family for setting everything up at short notice and for being the first hosts there.

Most representatives do not expect people to be paying attention.  That’s why the more people call and express their opinions, the more likely we will be listened to. Even if you know they will never vote your way on an issue, they do keep records of how many constituents disagree with them and it might help if they hear push back from their colleagues.

i.       Political Statistics of interest

John Harvey has found an interesting website that has all types of statistical and demographic information related to politics. For example, here is a graph comparing the change in family income for each president since Kennedy.

j.       True Blue News

The PA Democratic Committee puts out a regular bulletin with news about Democrats state-wide. There is news about the Governor, legislature, county and general news. Not sure how to subscribe to it, but it looked pretty good. You can try writing to pressoffice@padems.com if you’re interested.

K. Philadelphia Convention

L. Thinking about running for office?

Please get in touch with the Campaign Committee at Campaign@lebanondemocrats.com, text or call 717-873-7680 and we can steer you to the resources you will need.  Also, plan to attend the LCDC Seminars we are scheduling for 2016.  

 

M. Anna Cunha Century Club

 

We need your support as a donor and member of the Anna Cunha Century Club. Contributions of $50, $75 or $100 or more are welcome to sustain our party in Lebanon County, but a contribution of $100 or more can make a larger impact as we prepare for the 2016 national and state campaigns.

 

Century Club donations can be made by check or online through Act Blue.  We are only halfway to our budgeted goal and need to pay our bills and prepare for the fall campaign. Dig deep to win in November.
