Exciting news for tonight’s meeting!

Exciting news for tonight’s meeting! Fred Karger is in town and plans to stop by our meeting to say hello.  For those of you who don’t know him, last year Fred was the first Republican to establish a Presidential Exploratory Committee for 2012.  Today, he will be the first to file for President with the Federal Election Commission, turning in his paperwork this morning.

Fred was the Founder of Californians Against Hate, which help lead the fight against Proposition 8.  He has also played major roles in the campaigns of Presidents Ford and Reagan.

While he may not on the radar of the national media, Fred is a proud gay Republican, and we gladly welcome him.

Please stop by tonight to hear from Fred, our featured guest Julie Kruse, Policy Director at Immigration Equality, and to vote on endorsing Patrick Mara for City Council.  And don’t forget that we host an open bar both before and after the meeting.

See you tonight!
