The Blue Wave rolled in the room
I hope you didn't miss our meeting last Thursday evening! The Blue Wave rolled in the room ....we were lucky enough to be joined by not only Congressman Harley Rouda but we had two surprise guests...Congressman Mike Levin and Congresswoman Katie Porter! (Better than MSNBC!) It was a full house in Turtle Ridge when Soha Vazirnia so generously hosted us for a lovely reception and sit-down event. We made our second donation of this primary season to three of our Congresspeople and they shared their thoughts with us about the aggressive GOP effort to re-take their seats before both Katie and Mike departed. Harley then continued with a very eloquent talk about his first 8 months in Congress, his role on his committees, what he has already accomplished and his upcoming race. (You can read a great recap of his comments below.)
Ticket for sale!!! If you missed getting a reduced rate ticket to DPOC's Truman Dinner on Saturday, September 28 for $195 we have one (1) left! (Actually we have none but one person has to go out of town.) If you want to bring your spouse, let me know and we might be able to make that two! Just reply to this email and we can make it happen.
I hope you will join us for our next meeting when we welcome a man who has been called a mustard maven with a conscience.
