Obama organization meeting in East Central

Organizing for America, which is sort of the successor to the Barack Obama presidential campaign, will hold a town-hall style meeting Thursday evening at the East Central Community Center.

6 p.m., East Central Community Center, 500 S. Stone St. if you’re marking your calendar.

OFA likes to call it an Obama Listening Tour, although Obama won’t really be anywhere close to East Central. Instead, the chief listening will be done by Dustin Lambro, who is the organization’s state director.

Lambro will listen to folks’ concerns about such things as health care, the economy, energy or whatever, compile questions, comments and suggestions, and get it back to the the OFA, which is run by the Democratic National Committee. So when does Obama get a listen?

That’s not entirely clear, even to folks at OFA. Said r5egional press spokesman Frank Benenati: “We’re still trying to figure out all the kinks.” 

Which is interesting, because they’ve apparently held more than a few of these meetings, including several in the Seattle area.

Stilll, it seems like a chance for folks from the 2008 campaign to get back together and talk about the “old days.”

Maybe do a fist bump or two, even if it’s a day late? (See post immediately below.)
