April 14 Meeting with Chris Van Hollen's Staff

Elly Shaw-Belblidia Rockville DFA MeetUp Host / Organizer, writes:

Dear Montgomery County DFA Members, DFA and True Majority have asked supporters across the U.S. to meet with their Congressional representatives on April 14 to discuss Social Security. Here in the 8th Congressional District we have a fine Representative in Chris Van Hollen. We know he supports preserving Social Security and doesn't need convincing.

Still, we want to meet with his staff with this purpose: to emphasize our support for a vigorous Democratic defense of Social Security, and to ask what we can do to help in this effort. I have scheduled a meeting with Joan Kleinman, Cong. Chris Van Hollen's District Director, for Thursday April 14 at 9:30 am. It should last about 30 minutes.

The office address is 51 Monroe St., Suite 507, in central Rockville. Looking at the map, the building is more or less between Route 355 and the Regal Cinema. There may be visitor parking on the ground floor of the building, but if not, there is a large parking lot in front of the Cinema. It is walking distance from the Rockville Metro.

I might change my mind about this, but right now I'm thinking we could meet in the lobby of the building around 9:20, and any stragglers who come after 9:30 should come up on their own. Please let me know ASAP if you can join in this visit so that we have a healthy-sized contingent.

Thanks in advance,

Elly Shaw-Belblidia
