We met at Fremont Hills Country Club on December 6th, 2014, and enjoyed a very nice buffet, a good crowd of fellow Democrats, and an energetic speaker.
Randy Bland, President of the UAW Local 710 in Kansas City, spoke about his union and unions in general. He emphasized that no union dues are used for political candidates and that not all union members are Democrats. Union members must approve candidates to support and once they do, members support those candidates vigorously. Most candidates who support union issues, such as prevailing wage and minimum wage, happen to be Democrats.
The Cattywampus Band again entertained us throughout the evening, and Matt Patterson served as auctioneer for the many baskets and other items up for sale. With pies going for as much as $70 and baskets up to $100, we were pleased with the outcome.
Thank you all that attended, those who sponsored, those who donated auction items, and those who sent in money but could not attend. This is a fun social event for local Democrats, but also a fundraiser for the Christian County Democratic Central Committee!
