    I’m close to Broadway L&R but I enjoy going the Rim and space we need is not available at Broadway location. Let’s keep the Rim meetings. Thank you Allen for keeping us together and united in our goals.

    The Rim is closer for me, being right up 281N at Encino Rio, but I do know where the Broadway Lion and the Rose is and would have no problem getting there if that would indeed be more convenient, but as this is already settled on…but if not, please make sure that I am alerted. Many thanks, P. Kathy Kleiman

    Yes, I look forward to a real meeting and discussion between members without a guest speaker. What I wish to know is where did those four seats that were taken up from Republicans in Hispanic districts, which districts and just how we can take aim to these exact districts that were lost and perhaps find a way to get them safely back where they belong.

    Dear Jeanie,

    Count me IN for the Party.

    PLEASE ask Allen WHY we don’t have any functions at the Lion & Rose on Broadway, as that location is MUCH more convenient for our members (particularly ladies) that don’t drive AND for members in Southside.
    (It’s quite expensive to go to/from The Rim by taxi/Uber/Lyft.)

    yours, jim freeman
