Hi All! A heartfelt thanks to those who showed up at Civic Center Plaza today to brave the winds and help distribute tax literature and speak to those who stopped at our outreach station. While we didn't get quite the crowd we hoped for, we did manage to distribute what I would estimate at around 300 pieces of literature. Jawj's quiz was taken by several folks and was fun and perfect for the occasion. Thanks, Michael (Edelstein), for the Ron Paul article on the income tax--I didn't get a chance to read it until afterwards (and indeed I had to chase my copy down when it was blown away), and it contained some thoughtful remarks about the tax. Thanks to Mike Denny and Denny for showing up early and helping with the initial setup of the station. Thanks to Starchild for the cartoon and flyer, not showing up too late, and not bringing the bullhorn (even though it killed him not to bring it). Thanks to Dan The Man, Jun, Winston, and Nate from
Golden Gate Liberty Revolution for schlepping out and working with us--let's do it again sometime! Thanks also to Marty and Company from Fair Tax for joining us and helping literally to hold down the fort.
A special thanks to Marcy, who was the moving force for the event from beginning to end and worked tirelessly for the last few weeks designing flyers, sending endless emails, making the arrangements with Park and Rec and the SFPD, organizing the insurance, chipping in a lot of her own money, and helping me with all the details necessary to actually make something happen. Marcy was also very helpful with trying to work out the touchy negotiations with Sally from the Tea Party. Thanks to Marcy for going that extra mile and her good horsesense, as always!
