Judicial Convention

Congratulations to Judge Lucy Billings who is this year’s nominee for
Supreme Court.  Every Tilden Delegate and Alternate along with
District Leaders and Tilden members were there.  I was so proud to
nominate our own candidate Saliann Scarpulla and to second the
nomination of our  past president Debbie Kaplan.

Happy and Healthy New Year to all.


Pick Up Palm Cards

Palm Cards can be picked up at Organization of Staff Analysts on Tuesday September 8 at 7 pm. Palm cards can be used to stuff your buildings, give to friends and neighbors at bus stops, trains stations and in front of supermarkets. You can pass them out outside your regular poll site on Primary Day, September 15th. It’s known that most people going in to vote do not know who to vote for – a friendly card from the local democratic club volunteer can make a big difference. Give as much time as possible. To make other arrangements to get your cards, please call Louise at 212 475 5347,

Supreme Court Nominating Convention

New York County held its Democratic Nominating Convention for Supreme Court Judges on September 18th.  In a tightly contested race, Judge Judith Gische received 65 votes and secured the nomination over Judge Lucy Billings who received 61 votes.  Also nominated were incumbent

Justices Marcy Kahn, Shirley Kornreich and Martin Schonfeld.
Join Tilden on September 25th, 7:30 pm at Seafarers, 123 East 15th Street.  We will now be concentrating on the Presidential Election and need you help to make Senator Barack Obama our next President.  We will organize voter registration drives, phone banks, as well  as other campaign activities.

Primary Results and Next Meeting

Civil Court candidate, Nancy Bannon and Surrogate candidate, Nora Anderson, both won the Democratic Primary.  Your voices were heard and your votes did count.  Both will be in the general election if there are other party opponents, but as we know, the Democrat nomination is tantamount to election in New York County.

The next meeting of the club is on Thursday, September 25th, 7:30 pm, at Seafarers and International House, 123 East 15th Street in the chapel.  Guest speaker, Senator Bill Perkins will speak about the Obama presidential campaign and what we can do to help him get elected.
