February 2, 2017 brought another cold winter night to Fairview Park, but all 39 people in attendance at our Democratic Club meeting, heard a most stimulating presentation by Fairview Park Mayor Eileen Patton, followed by a rousing Q & A session with discussion of budget, businesses, buildings, and much more pertaining to our City and our future. We are most grateful to Mayor Patton for her leadership and vision during her four terms of office.
Club President Troy Greenfield introduced three of our current Precinct Leaders, Gail Nanowsky, Nancy Mikita, and Bill McGinty, and invited anyone willing to consider taking on the role of Precinct Leader in open Wards. She also invited members to attend the March for Refugees Rally on 2/3/17 at West 25th & Lorain, and to get involved in ongoing weekly Tuesday visits to Senator Rob Portman’s Cleveland office. Members were encouraged to read the Indivisible Guide (A practical guide for resisting the Trump agenda) at https://www.indivisibleguide.com.
Please mark your calendar for our next meeting on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 7 pm, and revisit this site for more information about the agenda for that evening.

The snowfall and chilling temperatures did not deter 28 participants from attending the January 2017 meeting at the Dunson Room in Fairview Park City Hall. President Troy Greenfield welcomed City Leader, Danielle Sundberg, who gave updates on 2016 election results, the 16th District geography, and challenges and opportunities for Democrats in the next four years. President Greenfield guided the group through a lively discussion about our post-election views and evolving values as Democrats, the critical role of social media in our culture and communications, and our challenge to build/re-build relationships in our communities as we anticipate 2018 and 2020 elections. The Participants were actively engaged in the discussion and provided great feedback and insight. We look forward to continuing our discussion and developing our action plans for local Democrats.
Next meeting is February 2, 2017 at 7pm in the Dunson Room at Fairview Park City Hall.
