We are in our 8th year of making positive changes in our local communities and Oklahoma. We will continue to review our goals for the next printing of our membership brochure and decide on a possible change on health care that indicates we favor strengthening the ACA as we transition to a Medicare-for-All Single Payer system. Let me know of additional suggestions before March 7. The entire group will review the proposed wording on health care and decide if we feel we should make a change.

Yours in the cause,
We recently held our 7th Brennan Society Anniversary Celebration! I can’t imagine a better group of folks than those present. We are already about half way through our 8th year of making positive changes in our local communities and Oklahoma. Some of our number recently attended the Celebration of Life for our Brennan Society Colleague Jimmie Norman, who left this realm of life on Christmas Day.

We have achieved amazing results for the progressive movement in Oklahoma in our 7+ years of existence!
We have elected county & congressional district party officers, elected 20 of our number as members of delegations to national political nominating conventions, seen one of our own serve as a presidential elector, supported numerous candidates for public office, opened the Oklahoma Democratic Party to participation by independents in primary elections, and given life to progressivism in Edmond and Central Oklahoma with members hailing from dozens of counties around the state!
LaDonna, Ismat, Tom & Gene will share remembrances from our first 7 year! We will have delicious anniversary cake and door prizes! Join us for this special 7 Years & Counting Anniversary Celebration!
