The Data Port received the following announcement from Phil Lopes, Coordinator of the Tucson Chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America.
Greetings to All,
If you found last week’s Giffords/UA Deficit Townhall to be too slanted to the right, too much fear mongering about Social Security and Medicare, and way too complicated, please join us for a Connect The Dots presentation on a budget plan that reflects true American values — “Rebuild The American Dream Budget” (also known as “The People’s Budget”). I promise it will be a lot more fun, colorful, hopeful and easy-to-understand! The Wilmot Library is quite beautiful, and there will be yummy treats to eat.
I would like to invite someone from Giffords’ office and Grijalva’s office to attend, but first I need to know we will have strong attendance to show enthusiasm for progressive values. Can you please commit to attend and RSVP today? Most appreciated.
TITLE: “Rebuild The American Dream” Budget (also known as “The People’s Budget”)
WHEN: Thursday, July 7th, 2011, 5:30pm to 7:30pm (presentation starts at 6:00pm)
WHERE: Murphy-Wilmot Library at 530 N. Wilmot Rd (between Speedway & Broadway)

DESCRIPTION: Are you tired of discussions about the Federal Budget constantly being dragged to one side? Fortunately, there is an alternative — the “Rebuild The American Dream” Budget (aka “The People’s Budget”) — which represents what the American people really want. Come learn about the details of this comprehensive proposal to balance our budget and restore our economy and basic fairness in a fun, visual presentation. Share your story and opinion in the lively discussion afterwards. Leave with an action plan to ensure this budget is part of the national discussion. Everyone welcome!
