John Kerry Visits UT Democrats

By Katie Naranjo

This Saturday, April 16th, John Kerry will be speaking with students from the University of Texas Democrats at the Recreational Sports Gym on 21st Street. All are welcome but space is limited. The town hall meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. and end at 11:30a.m. Senator Kerry will speak on his children’s insurance proposal the Kids Come First Act. Contact one of the University Democrats officers at www.udems.org to get ticket information.

This is the same time as the Texas Young Democrats convention. Could Kerry make a visit to the convention as well since he's in town?

well good to hear, Mike. If our member clubs are actually credentialled, then it could be a fun day.

Posted by: Byron L at April 11, 2005 01:23 AM

it's also at the same time as the FE Exam (and at the same time as the MCAT if there are any pre-meds out there). Goddamn FE exam!! >:o

Well Mike, since it was the UDs at UT that got him here, managed to get the room at the last minute, and have worked with them to accomodate students and the TYD convention, it's not so much your special event to ruin as it is ours to promote.

burned :)

Boys, Boys, Boys....now John Kerry is not to claim, he is a human being. The event is the U-Dems to wallow in, while the invite is extended to the TYDs. We are all Democrats, now be nice or ill burn you all. I do mean you to KT.

What I'd love to ask him:

Senator Kerry: If you look at the exit polls from the 2004 presidential election, they seemed to be off only in those states that either used electronic voting machines or electronic scanners, many of which were manufactured by the Diebold corporation, whose CEO has ties to the Republican party. Exit polls in hand-counted states were accurate and within the margin of error.

People have been talking about the problems of these machines on Slashdot and other news outlets since before the 2002 congressional elections - yet, you and your campaign pretty much completely and utterly ignored them.

Here's my question: What were you thinking?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward at April 11, 2005 07:38 AM

Would it be possible for a non-student to attend?

Or do you guys still not trust anyone over 30?

Posted by: kris at April 11, 2005 11:12 AM

Just so you know, I'm pretty sure he's hosting an event for major Austin area donors after the UDems event, so i doubt there will be any TYDs mingling. Sorry...

Posted by: Rachel at April 11, 2005 11:57 AM

Well, I never claimed Kerry, I know that the UDs have done a great job getting him down here, but those outside the Austin area who didn't know about it and are attending at our convention would be excited. So I don't claim him as TYD thing, we are just invited.

I'll be nice Katie, just for you. I seen your burns ...i.e. Ruben :)

For those of you that are new, peter posts trollish comments so you don't need to bother to reply to them. That, and they are usually off topic anyways.

Posted by: Karl-T at April 11, 2005 03:58 PM

i love you Mike, KT, and of course Ruben!!!!

Posted by: Katie at April 11, 2005 06:19 PM

I am sooo jealous of you bitches!!! :)
Have fun!!!!
I'll be at home with my singing John Kerry doll I won at a Democratic event last week. :)

That is awesome. Best of luck with the event.
