Support the Candidate(s) of Your Choice

The not-so-leftist media is judging the Presidential candidates by money raised and to a lesser extent number of donors. Money buys commercials and until we get campaign finance reform some of it is a necessary evil. NOW is when your money will have more impact and even a small donation helps. Volunteer efforts are important too. Check into the campaign(s) of your choice and make a positive difference. WQIDC members are encouraged to leave a comment here to let us know who you are currently supporting and what you are doing. For your convenience, here are the Democratic candidates:

Joe Biden --

Hillary Clinton --

Chris Dodd --

John Edwards --

Mike Gravel --

Dennis Kucinich --

Barack Obama --

Bill Richardson --

Thanks for whatever you can do/give!

John Edwards in NYC

Joan D., Kate, Joan P.

On Friday June 22, presidential candidate John Edwards was in New York City for his "Small Change for Big Change" national tour. West Queens Independent Democratic Club members Dan Jacoby, Joan DeCamp, Joan Pagan, and Kate Brennan were at Strata to hear his populist message. They were pleased to bump into former Ridgewood Democratic Club president Barbara Primosch, who took a picture of three of us.

John Edwards
