The Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club will be holding our Candidates Night and Endorsement Meeting at 7:30 pm on Thursday May 14 in the ground floor Chapel of Seafarer’s International House (123 East 15th Street at Irving Place). We will be voting to endorse for District Leaders, County Committee members, Judicial Delegates and Alternates, and for the Countywide opening for Civil Court judge. Among our guest speakers will be Judge Tanya Kennedy. The New York County Executive Committee meeting will be held in the Chapel immediately before our Tilden meeting, so many political dignitaries and celebrities will be with us.
Immediately after the Tilden meeting, members will retire to Mumbles to celebrate, discuss politics, and have more fun than political activists should be allowed to have. If you want to attend you must RSVP to Louise at LDankberg@nyc.rr.com .
The Annual Tilden Street Fair wil be held on Third Avenue – often referred to as The Boulevard of Fairs – on Sunday June 14. Members are encouraged to volunteer to work at our booth, greet neighbors, recruit new members, and gather names on petitions (Shelley Winfield will be leading the charge!). Tildenite Erica Sais recently volunteered – join her! It’s a fun day and you can stay for as long as you want; when it’s over enjoy a meal with the other Tilden volunteers. If you want to volunteer please contact President Mark Thompson at MarkPTNYC@gmail.com.
We all want to send special greetings and wishes to Marcia Robinson and Genevieve Cervera, who are both home recuperating. We miss you and look forward to seeing you soon!
And last, a big congratulations to the Dinner Committee and everyone who attended our Annual Dinner at The National Arts Club. There were 150 seated guests at dinner, plus a large additional crowd for cocktails, and 13 of our elected officials in attendance. We thought we couldn’t top last year’s success, but we did it!
