Many new faces at this meeting. Great to see everyone collaborating and getting to know each other. Leaders of each group called everyone together to introduce our new name and talk about plans for upcoming events. Primary goals for 2017-18 include unseating Darrel Issa and Duncan Hunter. To do this we’re going to work with opposition candidate to support their campaigns and hold fundraisers. First fundraiser will be for Doug Applegate (Issa’s opponent). The event will be called “Ales for Applegate” and may even feature the man himself. Action is underway to get Mr. Applegate on board.
The next planned event is Darrel Issa’s Emergency Town Hall on Tuesday, 2/21. It’s not expected that Darrel will have the guts to come, but everything is set up and the media will be there.
