Panaiotis called the meeting to order at 6:44 pm.

Zoom was set up and configured to maximize viewing and recording. Read AI took notes. Heather joined Zoom while on her way to the meeting. Once she arrived, there were no remote attendees.


The major tasks will involve canvassing, postcards, phone calls and whatever else the campaigns request. Plans will be developed after the campaigns tell us what they need.  Some candidates requested that we put more effort in campaigns that are at greater risk.  We decided to help Heather Berghmans and Cristina Parajon as needed, but to focus our efforts on Natalie Figueroa. Antoinette Sedillo Lopez is unopposed so will not need help. This decision was based on the strength of the republican challenger and the percentage of democrats in each district.  Justin will bring a list of competitive districts to the next meeting.  We acknowledged that Martin Heinrich and Gabe Vasquez are facing tough challenges so once the consolidated campaign gives us some direction, we can participate.  We anticipate hearing from the campaigns after Labor Day.

Speakers to our meetings or events

We discussed having someone from Young Democrats to come talk to us. We noted that we have 4 months and 4+ meetings until November. We considered other speakers from Native American Caucus, Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus, and Democratic Women. We can also let them know that we are active and ask if they have some volunteers and precinct chairs.

Molly McIntosh goes to Chicago

Molly was elected to go to the national convention in Chicago. She asked what our concerns are and what she should keep in mind in Chicago. It appears that delegates no orientation. The platform and rules committees have already been selected and are working on their mandates. If we hear about the platform in time, we can share our thoughts with Molly. Justin will meet with Molly to discuss the concerns of the Ceasefire Bloc. The debate has caused a lot of concern about Biden’s ability to win. Another debate will occur Sept. 10.

Next Meeting

Panaiotis will send out a poll on next meeting date which could be July 12 or July 19. The volunteer and data committees formed report back.


The easel with black marker worked better than the white board.
