Mexican-American Democratic Club Candidate Night Invite

Hi Chuck,

  Thank you for your group's invitation, however I will be out of town on August 26. If there is another opportunity to come and speak to your group and hear the concerns of your members, please let me know. I could still attend on August 19 when you will be hearing from Supervisor candidates, if that is an option (as you may or may not have heard, I am no longer a candidate for Supervisor due to a technical mistake of not turning in enough nominating signatures on time, however I am running for School Board instead).

Love & Liberty,
        ((( starchild )))
                   Candidate for School Board

You don't have to state reasoning for not attending and not do so in writing.
Convey as much to the leadership and possibly make a refreshment contribution?
Remember these groups are usaully not group gatherings but entertaining socio events.
Relax, ethnic affairs rather political or not are celebrations of culture and more puff than pomp and stance.
