Tricounty DFA Update: Our New Facebook Page, Meeting Reminder, more
Hello Everyone;

Hope you all had a fun-filled, safe and patriotic holiday weekend!

In this update for July 5th, 2010:

1. Our New Facebook Page
2. Meeting Reminder
3. Washington County Picnic

At our last meeting we decided to create a Facebook page. Unfortunately my computer troubles delayed that, but it is now up and running and available to you all! You can see it at:

I would urge everyone to join this new page. (You will need to join Facebook first.) As a member of the page you will be able to post messages to "the wall," which, if you are not familiar with it, is a community bulletin board where any member can post a message that every other members sees and gets on their own page. This makes it a good way to communicate with and find other members. It's a very flexible thing with a lot of potential for creative uses. If we want to we can– all together– make this into a major center of progressive politics in the entire Southern Adirondack-Tricounty-Greater Glens Falls-Saratoga-Lake George Area.

So go and sign up at:

Be looking forward to hearing from you all.

1. Our New Facebook Page

We will be having our regular monthly meeting this Wednesday, July 7th, at 7pm at the Rockhill Bakehouse Cafe in downtown Glens Falls. Last month we sent a letter to Rep. Murphy about some of his votes. We've received a partial reply back and Dick has also been in contact with Murphy's Chief of Staff Todd Schulte, so we may have more response to this by Wednesday.

Rep. Murphy has made some very good votes lately- for instance, he voted for financial reform and then voted for the unemployment extension, which is excellent and I am sure will please us all. His race against Republican challenger Gibson does not seem to be attracting much attention, but that probably is for the best for Murphy as the incumbent.

The cafe is located on the corners of Elm and Exchange Streets and Hudson Avenue, one block west of the roundabout in downtown Glens Falls.
