On Thursday January 9th, the Village Independent Democrats (VID) held their monthly meeting in St. John’s Lutheran Church on Christopher street. The meeting started with a report from Democratic district leader Keen Berger on a variety of topics of local interest. This was followed by a forum on Secretary of State John Kerry’s negotiations for a two state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict which included a presentation by Kate Press of the J Street advocacy organization and an extensive question and answer period with VID members.
Lastly was an election with Linda Jacobson chosen as Treasurer, Kathy Sowinski as Recording secretary, Alexander Meadows and Ed Yutkowitz as Corresponding secretaries and a new executive board. Tentatively, the next meeting will be February 13th at the same location.
