The Hillsborough Democratic Alliance regular monthly meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, at Avalon Assisted Living, 393 Amwell Road. After hearing two terrific speakers in the past two months, Charlie Kratovil from New Brunswick Today and Heather Taylor from Citizens Campaign, the membership will be synthesizing what has been presented with President Obama’s agenda for 2013, and discussing the political landscape locally, statewide and nationally, in order to plan this year’s activities. The meeting is also a good chance to meet and socialize with Democrats and other progressives in Hillsborough. Refreshments are provided at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 6:45 p.m. Current and prospective HDA members are welcome to attend the meeting.
On Feb. 28, the Politics Book Club will meet at Lenny’s Pizza and Pasta (in the Kingsbridge Shopping Center on South Branch Road) from 7 – 9 p.m. to discuss “Blessed are the Organized: Grassroots Democracy in America” by Jeffrey Stout. This announcement is made one month ahead to give you time to read the book, but you can join the group for dinner, good discussion, and camaraderie even if you haven't completed the book. Contact Jim Bergstrom, HDA Vice President at email@example.com to RSVP.
