3rd District Supervisorial Candidate's Forum to Replace US Congressmember Speier's Forced Cancellation of Speech to Pacifica Democrats on Saturday March 20, 2010
Well, Jackie Speier's Washington D.C. office and I were in contact twice daily for the past week, hoping against hope that we could carry out the Congressmember's planned presentation to the Pacifica Democrats, Coastside Democrats, and the Daly City/Colma Democratic Club, but, unfortunately, it wasn't to be...for today Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announced that the highly controversial will be voted on this Sunday night, March 21st, which canceled all travel for the Congressional members this coming weekend.
So, my friends, we are now moving to "Plan B"...We are hosting a Candidate's Forum for the 3rd District Supervisorial Candidates. We have two of the three Supervisorial candidates presenting to us at our morning breakfast meeting this Saturday: April Vargas and Michael Stogner, both Democrats. The remaining third Supervisorial District candidate, Don Horsley, will present to us in April.
The response to our invitation to join us for Congressmember Speier's presentation was overwhelming...And since, so very, very many of you have already RSVP'd for the Speier presentation, I must now ask that once again (for the Chef's sake), and, in view of the change of program, that you either email or call me to let me know as soon as possible if, indeed, you will be still be joining us to listen to the 3rd District Candidates Forum and participate in a "Q and A" with our 3rd District Supervisorial candidates this Saturday morning, March 20th, or not...
I am currently in the process of re-scheduling Jackie's presentation to the Democratic Club groups and will let you know shortly of the new date, but meanwhile, we would immensely enjoy the pleasure of your company this Saturday morning in the Sharp Park Golf Course's Banquet Room (Francisco and Sharp Park Blvds) in Pacifica to view and participate in our Candidates Forum.
Come listen to the candidates and let them listen to you about what you want in your next San Mateo County Supervisor!
Doors open at 9:00 a.m. Seating is between 9:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Meeting will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. Your choices remain the same for meals: Full Breakfast $12; Continental Breakfast $6; Coffee only $3...
Again, please contact me with either your "regrets" or your "re-confirmed RSVP", so that we may give an accurate headcount to the Chef.
