On Wednesday, Nov. 5, let's pick up yard signs and leave thank you notes that invite those who support Democratic candidates to become part of the Democratic community. It helps us all to be supportive of Democratic candidates and causes if we know others who share our values.
Reply to this e-mail or call Democratic Headquarters if you are willing to be part of this effort.

Donna Bergen, candidate for Greene County Presiding Commissioner
Democratic Candidate for Associate Circuit Judge, Division 2:
The Greene County Democratic Central Committee is actively opposing three amendments on the November 4 ballot, urging voters to vote "no" on Amendments 3, 6 and 10.
Amendment 3, if passed, would implement teacher performance evaluations that would be used to determine whether a teacher should be dismissed, retained, demoted or promoted. It would also prevent teachers from collectively bargaining over the terms of these evaluations. All local teachers organizations including the Missouri National Education Association and the Missouri State Teachers Association, the Missouri Association of School Administrators, the Missouri School Boards Association, and close to 100 school boards around the state have come out against this measure.This amendment takes local control of our schools away from parents, teachers and school districts, and hands it over to politicians.
Greene County Democrats also passed a resolution opposing Amendment 6, noting that this measure only allows 6 days of early voting, does not allow for any Saturday or Sunday voting and that it will only go into effect if the Legislature funds the measure, which they have not yet agreed to do.
The Committee passed a third resolution opposing Amendment 10, urging voters to vote NO. This amendment places a number of limitations on the Governor's powers to propose a budget and to allocate funds without legislative consent. This amendment prohibits the governor from reducing funding passed by the general assembly without legislative consent.
