Fort Bend Democrats Labor Day Event to Be Celebrated With Gustav

Well, it happens. The Fort Bend Democrats are again celebrating their Countywide Labor Day Campaign Kickoff this coming Sunday, August 31st. That is, just about the time Hurricane Gustav makes a decision on which Gulf Coast coastline it will make landfall.

Hey, this is the Gulf Coast.

It happens.

What could be a great event as area Democrats celebrate Labor Day with “Staycations,” and make their way to a great kickoff event, could turn out to be cataclysm if those of us in southeast Texas make Rita-esque flights up the contra-flow lanes

But if southeast Texas dodges this bullet why not put this great event on your calendars and come on down to the Sugar Land Community Center at 226 Matlage Way in Sugar Land?

We are holding the event Sunday afternoon between 3 and 6 PM. We’ll have barbecue for $15 a plate and a bunch of state and local candidates to meet and greet.

We’ll have some very rare campaign memorabilia up for auction.

And we’ll have Congressman Al Green give a barnburner of a keynote speech that will make some of the speeches at the DNC this week look pale in comparison.

Need something to help you decide between fight or flight? Here’s a link. As it stands right now New Orleans’ loss will sadly once again be our gain.
