This Thursday, Nov. 20, Bay Area Association of Democratic (BAAD) Women will discuss the changing political climate and make plans for the coming year. Diane Mosier, president of River Oaks Association of Democratic (ROAD) Women, will talk about efforts to collaborate with BAAD Women and other Democratic organizations and activate the Women's Issues Network (WIN).
BAND will hold its last monthly meeting for this year at the Harris County Courthouse Bay Area Annex at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12. The meeting was originally scheduled at the Clear Lake Democratic Headquarters, but it had to be relocated. We will talk about the 2014 campaign successes and disappointments.

While mail-in ballot numbers are up, the in-person early voters have not yet shown up in the numbers we need to turn Texas blue. It's all hands on deck time -- time to vote if you haven't and then knock on doors and make phone calls!
