SF Liberty Coalition event this Thursday evening - City Commissions, Boards, etc. - What Are They Doing? Is It Working?

From: Starchild
Sent on: Wednesday, August 17, 2011 5:08 PM
	On the 3rd Thursday of each month from 7-9pm, we turn the 50 Mason  
Social House into a forum to look at various aspects of local politics  
from a pro-freedom perspective. Join us to learn, network, socialize,  
have a drink or two, and make new friends!

*       *      *

	This month we'll be taking a look at San Francisco's city committees,  
commissions, boards, and task forces. How many are there, anyway?  
Ninety-six? 97? 116? What are they doing? How much is it costing?  
Around $6.5 million a year, as the Budget Analyst guessed, or more?  
Are their contributions helping the city?

	Our guest for the first part of the evening will be Joe Eskenazi, the  
reporter who wrote the terrific July 27th SF Weekly cover story on  
this topic (see http://www.sfweek...­ 
  ). After hearing from Joe, and possibly from Supervisor Jane Kim or  
someone from her office, we'll introduce a panel of current and former  
members of various city committees to talk about their experiences and  
answer questions.

	So if you've ever wondered about these commissions, wanted to serve  
on one, or just want to see more transparency and accountability, come  
join us for what's sure to be an interesting discussion, and as  
always, bring your tough, pro-freedom questions!

WHEN:    	Thursday August 18, 7-9pm (and every 3rd Thursday evening)
WHERE:	50 Mason Social House (50 Mason Street between Market and Eddy)  
- 1 block from Powell Street BART
WHAT:  		Speaker and Panel on City Commissions, Boards, Task Forces,  
etc. - What Are They Doing? Is It Working?

	Feel free to stay and socialize after we conclude at 9pm. There will  
be live music performed by the Beth Custer Ensemble.

	Even if you don't live or work in San Francisco, the issues we  
discuss at SF Liberty Forum events are typically mirrored in other  
communities, and are likely to help you get a better perspective on  
local politics in your town.

Love & Liberty,
                                  ((( starchild )))
