4/20, 4/21 Candidates' Forums, Recent Press Articles

April 20 : District 4 Candidates Forum in Lagunitas, 1 Lagunitas Road, in the school multipurpose room. The school is located just behind the San Geronimo Valley Community Center, 6350 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. (I just did a gig with my friend Jose there this past Sunday.) btw - I also posted on Nextdoor.

Thursday, April 21st : Women's Political Action Committee Endorsement event :
"MWPAC is holding its endorsement night, Thursday, April 21, 7 p.m. at the San Rafael City Council Chambers, 1400 5th Ave. We will be covering the Supervisors and Judicial races and candidates will be speaking. Members also will be voting on endorsing in the Senate race. The meeting is open to the public, but only MWPAC members can vote. A reception will be held beforehand at Whippersnapper, 1613 Fourth St, where you can informally meet the candidates. It begins at 5:30. Cost is $20. No charge to candidates."

This Friday April 22nd, I'll be sitting in to jam on some jazzy tunes with RPM
Richard Wood on B3, Pat Duffey on mellow guitar, Martin Cunningham on drums plus special guest Dan Duffin on bass. They'll start at around 7:00 pm
I'll sit in starting at around 8:30 pm
So, if anyone wants to talk politics outside, come hang out. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate. I am still collecting donations for campaign expenses. I'm not going to litter our landscape with plastic signage. Please contact me at 415-789-6274 if you would like to help out by making a sign out of recycled/upcycled something or other.

Save the date : May 12th - I'm gathering some friends to help raise money for the Throckmorton Theatre's Youth Scholarship Program. I guess it would make more sense to raise money for my campaign, but I usually don't do the usual, I do what feels right to me.
More details to follow. I promise you it will be a fun time.
Again, please contact me if you can volunteer some time to help out with this event.

I'd like to share a couple of articles with you.  This came out on April 7th in the Point Reyes Light. I sound a bit like I'm rambling at times, because Samantha Kimmey is very easy to talk to so I felt as if I was chatting with a friend :

This IJ article was brought to my attention yesterday afternoon :

When I was invited to participate in this particular article, I was told that we were going to be given a list of questions, each of the eight candidates was going to answer and it would be published as such : a question would be listed and then the candidates' answers would follow. That didn't happen. Apparently, there wasn't enough room in the paper. Such is life in the real world. We expect one thing and get another.
