Carrollton Public Schools will present a Voter Information Night, taking place at Carrollton Middle School, 3211 Carla Dr., on October 28, 2014, and featuring WNEM TV5 anchor Sam Merrill as moderator.
Carrollton Public Schools is proud to offer the Voter Information Nights to Saginaw again. The Voter Information Night will allow constituents to mingle with the candidates from the November 4th general election during the informal reception that begins in the Carrollton Middle School Library at 6:00pm. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to submit questions for the forum, which begins at 6:45pm, and is moderated by Sam Merrill.
“We offer the Voter Information Nights to give constituents access to as much information as possible,” said Tim Wilson, Superintendent of Carrollton Public schools. “An informed vote is a powerful vote.”
The Voter Information Night has been a tradition at Carrollton Schools for many years. For more information, contact the Carrollton Community Education office at 989-399-8864.

As I reported at the October Saginaw County Democratic Party Meeting, we will be having a Thanksgiving Food Drive for a family provided through United Way and our Labor Liaison, Steve Lamb. Please remember to bring non perishable food and paper products to our Thursday, November 13 meeting @ 7 PM at 318 S Hamilton. Or, until the Nov 4 election, the office should be open daily but call 792-9900 to be sure. Cash donations always accepted. This is a single mom with a boy 9 and a girl 6. Recently, they lost their home with everything in a fire and United Way is helping them with a placement through Project Home. If you would like to donate but cannot attend the meeting or can't drop it off at the headquarters, please call me at 392-5150 and I can pick up your donation. Boxes are always helpful for packing the food, etc.
Keep in mind this same family will be our December Christmas Project for food and gifts. Of course, that is not until our December 13 meeting but sometimes advance notice helps us with our purchasing.
Mom: 14-16 pants; M/L shirt; 7 1/2 shoes; kitchen and bath items
Girl: (6 yrs) shirts, S (4/5); pants, 10; shoes, size 1
Boy: (9yrs) shirts, 10/12; pants, 7/8; shoes 5 1/2
You have been so generous in the past by reaching out to our community. Democrats helping others is what we do!

November 4, voting day in America, is fast approaching. Before you cast your ballot, be sure to recall some undeniable FACTS:
Under the current Democratic Administration, businesses created more than 10 million new jobs, compared with thousands of jobs lost per month under the prior GOP administration.
The housing market is on the rebound.
The auto industry was saved. Manufacturers are adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s.
We have the lowest percentage of Americans without health insurance in the nation’s history.
The jobless rate was 10% in October 2009. Unemployment is now less than 6%.
Corporate profits are through the roof. Tax rates for average working families are the lowest since the 1950s.
The Dow Jones Industrial average was less than 7,000; it is now more than 16,000.
All of this success is in spite of more than 300 Republican filibusters in Congress (many for job creation), more than 50 House votes to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) and votes against the Administration’s jobs creation bill to fix our deteriorating roads and bridges.
Finally, please remember which party has consistently voted AGAINST Social Security, Medicare, the minimum wage and everything our Constitution requires Congress to do to “promote the general welfare”?
Do you really want more Republican obstruction, including the right to vote in many States, and a Supreme Court which gives inanimate corporations the “right” to contribute unlimited amounts of money to elections?
FACTS, not inherited ideology and blatant lies from expensive TV ads should guide us all on how to vote.
Yours for a more enlightened electorate,
While we don't have final numbers on SCDP's Fall Banquet and Silent Auction, it was clearly a success. The silent and live auction alone brought in over $5,000. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way. Thank you to everyone who attended. The speakers were great. The live auction was great fun, as usual. It was a great evening of camaraderie. Let's do it again next year.
