Hi All! Here's the agenda for this month's meeting:
By the way, I also wanted to talk about a registration drive for ballot access (need about 20,000 new members in California by 2014 if we want to stay on the ballot), but I felt the items I picked are more urgent and timely for right now. Also, if I try to squeeze too much into the agenda, then there's not enough time to give each topic the proper focus and discussion it needs. So, the registration drive is not forgotten, just deferred for a while.
Also, we received two more invitations to oppose the ballot measures publicly, as a result of winning the lottery. The Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council is meeting on Thursday, September 13 from 7-9 PM at the Park Branch Library (downstairs) 1833 Page Street between Cole and Shrader. Starchild will speak against A, C, and E. I will go also, and it wouldn't hurt for others to attend, if you can. The other invitation is from the League of Women Voters, and the date will be Friday, September 21, and Starchild will speak against A, C, E, and maybe F. Time and location are not finalized yet--that information will be forthcoming as soon as they have all their speakers nailed down.
Thanks to Starchild for doing an admirable job of opposing A, C, E, and G tonight at the Democratic Club's Ballot Measure Endorsement Meeting in Potrero Hill. They were mostly hardcore Democrat loyalists to the end and were unsurprisingly hostile to Starchild's arguments, but I thought Starchild held his stand well. Not surprisingly they hate the very essence of corporations and were blind to the one-sided nature of G, which says nothing about the influence unions wield in politics. On the other hand, surprisingly, there was opposition to B, the parks bond but, as Starchild pointed out, that was probably mainly because Aaron Peskin spoke against it tonight. This was definitely not "speaking to the choir," and thanks to Starchild for persisting.
