Representative of Dr. David Gill, candidate for Congress in IL-13
Representative of Rob Zerban, candidate for Congress in WI-01 (Rep. Paul Ryan, incumbent)
Representative of Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, candidate for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin (invited)

The agenda will include:
If you can't attend Tuesday's meeting, NDFA still wants you.
NDFA wants you to volunteer. Starting in September, NDFA will be organizing phone banks on behalf of NDFA endorsed and adopted candidates.
Who are the endorsed and adopted candidates?
Lt. Colonel Tammy Duckworth, candidate for Congress IL-08 (incumbent Rep. Joe Walsh)
Des Plaines Mayor Marty Moylan, candidate for state representative
Commissioner Deb Shore, candidate to be re-elected to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
Kari Steele, candidate for commissioner of the MWRD
Leslie Coolidge, candidate for Congress IL-06 (incumbent Rep. Peter Roskam... very Right Wing, but not loud and obnoxious like Joe Walsh, though he is the Chief Deputy Whip)
"How's this phone bank work?"
NDFA organizes its members to meet and make phone calls. One location is at a condo party room in Edgewater. One location is the campaign office of Ald. Michele Smith in Lincoln Park. And the other location is next door to the office of Ald. John Arena in Jefferson Park. If you live on the North Side of Chicago or near the North Side, one of these locations should be reasonably convenient.
"But how do I get involved?"
Send an email to NorthsideDFA@gmail.com. Say, "I want to participate in phone banks," or "I want to be invited to future meetings."
"But I still have more questions!"
Ask in the comments or sent an email to Northside DFA. Also, you can leave a voice mail at 773-609-5818, although it might take a couple days to respond.
If you can't attend next Tuesday's meeting, you can put it on your calendar to attend a future meeting. NDFA meets on the second Tuesday of the month.
