Our monthly council meeting was held on 11/28/11. The discussion centered around planning for the 12/1/11 Day of action. It was decided that we would attend the 11/29/11 coalition meeting regarding the millionaire’s tax in lieu of scheduling a meeting in the few days left in the month. Teal presented material, including charts about the millionaires tax and sent them to us after the meeting. We scheduled our next meeting for 12/13/11 at Teal’s home. It has been posted on the Moveon web page so it can be signed up for now.
We discussed having a phone bank and utilizing a conference call network to hold online meetings in inclement weather. Rochelle, who was not at the meeting, has volunteered to do some phone and emailing work for the group along with our secretary Pat.. Two of our new members attended their first council meeting. We have another new member, Michael, who joined yesterday. Welcome
A few of us are planning to attend a meeting hosted by a group in the Bronx on Saturday. We are thinking of doing some joint work with them and I will report after the meeting.
