Democracy for Monroe County is pleased to announce our April 2016 Link-Up, to take place on Thursday, April 14, 2015, gathering at 6pm at Bobby’s Colorado Steakhouse, on North College Avenue in Bloomington. 6-6:30pm is social hour and a chance to get some food and drink. Business commences at 6:30 and should be concluded by 8:30.

This is the Link-Up at which we will be voting on endorsements of candidates in the 2016 Bloomington municipal election. All members in good standing are eligible to vote on endorsements. “Good standing” means that you have paid your year-2016 dues of $20 on or before March 8, 2016.

All candidates who have chosen to seek our endorsement have submitted responses to several questions. Those responses are attached to this post. DFMC members are encouraged to read over these responses before attending the Link-Up. You may also want to watch the DFMC sponsored primary debates, held last month on March 21 and March 29 In addition, our endorsements committee will deliver their report at the Link-Up, which will include any recommendations that they have made.

We encourage members to attend the meeting and cast your votes at that time, after hearing the report of the committee, so that you may make a fully-informed decision.

Please join us! If you are on Facebook, look for our upcoming invitation and submit your RSVP so we know to expect you.
