Letter From the Chair – November 28, 2022

I am still moving a little slowly after a FABULOUS Thanksgiving with friends old and new, and lots of really great food.

The Holiday Season is cranking up with all kinds of Community Events. I suggest you pick up a copy of the Keys Weekly and get the scoop about what is happening in your area.

Meanwhile, the senseless killing continues. Does the GOP want to address that issue, or any other of importance to regular citizens who would like to live in peaceful, safe communities? NO! It’s not even on their radar!

This lame-duck Congress had best get their act together and jam some important stuff through! How about an assault weapons ban, Voting Rights or codify Abortion rights, or better yet, the ERA! I have a Christmas wish list. Seeing Trump and many of his co-conspirators in handcuffs is still at the top! How about we take the drawing of voting districts away from elected officials? We tried that in Florida, but the Gov. shoved through an illegal map. I think it’s in court. Why does it have to be in court? What he did was illegal. Arrest Him!

Our Local Elected officials are back at it this week and they always bear watching. Here goes:

Thursday, December 1
The Key Colony Beach City Council will meet at 9:30 am in the Temporary City Hall. For more info, click here: https://keycolonybeach.net/citydocs-1/

Can you believe that’s the only one?
Here is a community Event we should all support:

Thursday, December 1
World Aids Day Ceremony in Key West. 4:30 – 6 pm at the Aids Memorial, 1707 White St. Key West, Fl. 33040.

If you are in Key West this Friday, check out our Annual Holiday Fundraiser this Friday, DEC. 2, 6-8:30 pm at the home of Steve Smith and Paul Murray, located at 1525 Atlantic Blvd.
You cannot miss this house because Paul loves to decorate for every holiday. We will be honoring our friend Steve, a true-blue Democrat and a political Junkie! We loved him! For tickets, please click on this link: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/holidayminglejingle22

As our winter residents return along with the tourists, remember to get your booster shots. The flu AKA the “Key West Crud” is going around as well as more COVID. Protect yourself and your family. We need you!!!

I hope to see you soon!
