March 14, 2024 Dessert With Friends – What happened on January 6 – from the inside

At our March 14, 2024 Dessert With Friends meeting at the Ashland American Legion, Cindy Young will talk about her experiences with being jammed up in the January 6 debacle.  She is currently being scheduled for a trial on charges brought against her from that day in DC.  Her trial date has changed at least once so we are not 100% sure she’ll be able to attend our meeting. However, it is highly likely that she will.

In our lifetime we have never seen such happenings.   This is your chance to hear from a person who was there, a person who is experiencing firsthand the heavy weight of our legal system as it attempts to judge her actions on that fateful day.

As a backup to Cindy’s presentation we have the movie: Sound of Freedom that we may show.

In either case we will provide you with an interesting evening.

The What’s and Why’s of Cindy’s presentation:

  • Why I made the trip to Washington on January 6
  • What did I witness
  • What did I do
  • What happened after that day
  • What is happening now
  • What concerns me about the current geo/political environment
  • What I believe we can do to correct the course we are on – it starts LOCAL
  • What I have experienced with our corrupt justice system and what I am facing today.

October 12, 2023, Dessert With Friends – Election Integrity

Election Integrity – Speakers from the District 24 Senate Race Audit Team will discuss the movement to secure our elections in New Hampshire.

“We have a list of folks who have moved from every town in NH and applied for a USPS permanent move and remained on the voter registration at the midterm. There are 64,000 NH voters state wide who moved from their home county or out of state that were still active from their old address. Our goal is to clean the movers who are no longer living at their address from the voter rolls so they will be as clean as possible going into our next election.

We are happy to get interested people working with their town checklist supervisors to get the lists clean. Hollis just removed over 400 names- Sandown about the same.  It’s an effort we can all be part of.

Here are the folks who will tell us all about it.

  • Michael Bean – Rye Republicans, Town Chair, Delegate and State Committee Member
  • Al Brandando – Retired commercial pilot, Leader of the NH constitutional convention & voting machine maintenance auditor
  • Linda Brown – Business owner & expert in New Hampshire elections ( Chain of custody) / Recounts
  • James Goodwin – Systems Analyst , IT director and Machine tape auditor
  • Brenda Towne – Business exec, election auditor : 2020, Team lead for citizen led election reform
