  1. As the executive vice president of the Chelsea Reform Democratic Club, or CRDC, I present monthly programs addressing political and community issues.
    I need a strong speaker in opposition to the NYS ballot initiative that, if passed, would legalize non-Indian casinos in that state. The speaker would be facing off against a proponent of the initiative.

    The meeting will take place October 17th, 2013, 7:00 pm, at the Hudson Guild Center, 441 West 26th Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues.)
    Thank you.
