The Next Metrocrest Democrats meeting

will be on

 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16 at 7pm via Zoom


**PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE**

Our speaker will be John Love, 

Candidate for US Senate running against Ted Cruz in 2024


Now  that we're finished with the 2022 election, which were a mixed bag,  it's time to look toward the next elections.  While not successful in the statewide elections, locally in Dallas County Democrats were very strong.  Julie Johnson and a number of other State Representatives were reelected, Andrew Sommerman replaced J J Koch on the County Commissioners Court, John Creuzot and Clay Jenkins were strong against Republican attacks. 

We're all aware of electoral results at the national level...Democrats have retained control of the Senate with a Senate Runoff still  to be decided in Georgia in December and the House is yet to be decided. These results are exceptionally positive for the presidential party in a midterm election, and far from the annihilation of the Democrats that the Republican expected.  Retaining control of the Senate, in particular, means that President Biden can continue to nominate Federal judges, and the vote on their appointments can't be held up as was done when the Republicans controlled the Senate under the leadership of Mitch McConnell.  

But now many are already looking to the next elections.  There is likely to be a special election for Mayor in Farmers Branch since the current mayor, Robert Dye has resigned and candidates are emerging.  There are already several people planning to run against Ted Cruz, and we want to introduce you to one of them.

John Love is from Midland, Texas and he's been elected 3 times to the Midland CIty Council. John Love is a second-generation business owner. He graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in economics from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and was elected three times to the Midland City Council. John has served on the Permian Basin Metropolitan Planning Organization and Texas’s Border Trade Advisory Committee. He is a past president of both the Midland Space Development Corporation and the Texas Municipal League.

Come meet John Love.   As we go forward, we hope to present all of the candidates running to defeat Ted Cruz, who narrowly won his last reelection bid in 2018.
