East Bay DFA Summer Party with Special Guest Robert Cruickshank

  • August 8, 2010 · 2:00 PM
  • Janet at Home

Summertime! Join East Bay DFA for our annual garden party at Janet Stromberg's house. Relax on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy the comaraderie, you deserve it!

Special Guest

Robert Cruickshank
Courage Campaign Political Director

In addition to enjoying a summer day together, we have a special guest. Most of you are probably aware of the Courage Campaign, but you may not know much about its Political Director. Robert's a brilliant progressive strategist. His posts on California issues have been a must read at Calitics.com for years. Robert will talk about California politics in general, prospects for November (canabis anyone?) and John Laird's run-off election for State Senate District 15, set for August 17.

Remember it’s Sunday, August 8. The good times start at 2:00 pm and run through the afternoon. It's a pot luck so bring a dish or drinks for yourself and a few others.

    Lots of fun. Robert was terrific and got everyone enthused to support Democrats and in particular John Laird. We will phone bank and car pool to Santa Clara this weekend.

    Having potlucks is a great idea for bringing the group members closer together and really getting to know each other.

    It was fun to meet new people, sample the great food and network like crazy. But most fun was getting inspired to help John Laird win the 15th District Senate seat Tues, August 17. Robert gave us an intelligently upbeat assessment of the race, Sharon Maldonado and Ruby Reid gave updates from the ground and the phone lines, Nicky Gonzales-Yuen and Andy Katz are making sure we have places to gather for phoning this week and a couple dozen people signed on to call voters or knock on doors in the District next weekend. Overall, the party was a rousing success. Stay tuned for details on our GOTV activities this week.
