Our Chicago super-volunteer. He’s a pretty smart guy and some of the >> suggestions here on lower $ fundraising are worth considering. Very >> negative on LGBTQ hire. I reported on my last Chicago visit that there is >> also a lot of ethnic agitation there. Probably a place Biden will try to >> play so we should pay some attention.
I’d like to begin with my concerns on the LGBTQ hire that was recently >> announced. This is my personal opinion and feeling; though these >> feelings/concerns are shared by a number of activist friends, who are also >> supporters of Hillary. >> >> As you know, this summer was a big deal for marriage equality and the >> LGBTQ community; and it seemed like so much opportunity was lost when no >> director or team of LGBTQ outreach/coordinators were hired. We were left >> waiting and wondering until the end of September when the hiring of Mr. >> Lowell was announced. No doubt he is wonderful person and looks to have >> some solid work experience, but at the same time his hire is confusing and >> underwhelming. Where was Hillary on this hire? It feels and looks like she >> had no part in this hire and that is extremely upsetting!
This is a hire we would expect for a Senate or Governor’s race, not >> for an important & #Herstoric candidate like Secretary of State Clinton. >> Coming on the heels of the most important ruling for LGBTQ civil rights in >> the history of our country, while the LGBTQ community is splintering into >> progressive equality movements of race, immigration, transgender, women’s >> issues, and other forms of discrimination facing everyone else, except for >> the exclusive white and affluent gay male community that dominates the >> LGBTQ D.C based organizations. The optics of this hire are highly >> problematic within a rapidly changing political environment in the LGBTQ >> community.
St. Louis is the largest Bosnian American community in the U.S. >> –around 80,000. Angie Acree, HRC Super Volunteer and the Clinton Campaign >> volunteer rep in Missouri has asked the Midwest Fundraising Team to arrange >> for a side meeting between Hillary and the Bosnian American leadership in >> Missouri during her next fundraising trip. It is the belief of Ajla >> Delkic, the executive director of the Advisory Council for Bosnia and >> Herzegovina (based in D.C.) that it would take little attention by Hillary >> to light this community on fire. Mr. Vajrovic is the leader and is locally >> connected to the Democratic Party. But no one has ever met with them >> from the Democratic Party at a senior level. Barack Obama lost Missouri to >> McCain by 3,903 votes in 2008. These votes are to be SOUGHT aggressively. >>
At the recent Ethnic Council Meeting with Amy Dacey, CEO of the DNC >> here in Chicago, the talk among the ethnic leaders of Chicago area was the >> lack of outreach to their constituencies….People were highlighting the >> absence of aggressive outreach since Bill Clinton’s campaigns in 96 and >> Obama’s in 2007 – November 2nd – Hillary is in Chicago ALL day for >> fundraisers – would be nice if an Ethnic Round Table could be arranged >> (small one) with Maureen Pikarski who could help make that happen >> 1-312-718-9351 and if it could be filmed by various news outlets that >> cater to these constituencies – would be huge in audience reached and for >> mobilizing the ethnic communities to help in IOWA and in IOWA! >>
