Craig FordNorth Alabama residents have a couple of opportunities to meet Rep. Craig Ford (D), get his take on what's happening in the Legislature and how Democrats can make a difference from a minority position.  The first is a Meet and Greet tonight at 5:30 pm, hosted by the Rocket City Democrats:

Friday, March 2, 2012: 5:30-7:00 p.m, Amendment XXI, 123 Northside Sq., Huntsville, AL

This Friday, The Rocket City Democrats are hosting a Meet and Greet with Alabama House Minority Leader Craig Ford.  Rep. Ford is planning to discuss political issues facing both Alabama and the Nation, as well as voter organization and motivation for the upcoming 2012 elections.

On Saturday morning, March 3rd, Rep. Ford will be the featured speaker at the Democratic Men's Club breakfast at 8:30 am.

The DMC is holding a free breakfast this Saturday March 3rd at J's Special Occasion with Minority Leader of the Alabama House of Representatives, Rep. Craig Ford.

"Coffee and contacts" will begin at 8:30, giving everyone an opportunity to network and get to know one another. After this, our speaker will begin at 9:00.

Please RSVP via email to DMCmail@democraticmensclub.com with your name so that we can plan for the event.  

I hope Rep. Ford will take this opportunity to discuss the outbreak of anti-women bills in the Alabama Legislature and also his recent decision to break with the Democratic caucus and support HB159, which would divert tax money from the Education Trust Fund to corporations as an incentive to expand or retain operations in Alabama.
