Napa Meet-and-Greet for Three Green Candidates

http://www.cagreens.org/sites/cagreens.huang.radicaldesigns.org/files/gpca_four_2014.jpg
The Napa Greens will host a Meet & Greet with three Green/no-corporate-money candidates: Luis Rodriguez, Ellen Brown, and Laura Wells, who are running for Governor, Treasurer, and Controller respectively (see endorsement post). They call for using the budget surplus to help the poor, not to create a Rainy Day Fund, and for a publicly-owned State Bank to invest in California not Wall Street.
All candidates are gathering 10,000 signatures-in-lieu-of-a-filing fee (before recent “campaign reform” it was 150 signatures), raising funds, and and asking for your vote in the “Top Two” primary on June 3, 2014.
Slack Art Collective is a great space that serves as art studios and a community center.
WHEN
January 17, 2014 at 6pm – 9pm

Katy will bring a wealth of experience to the Council while also working to keep the shining light of scrutiny on the Council’s actions.

Liat Meitzenheimer

Liat is a long time board member of GVRD and has worked both for the parks and for open space in general. She has experience from both GVRD and her time on the human rights committee of the City. Liat will be an important asset for the Council with her long term knowledge of the City and will also be a prudent financial supervisor with her background with GVRD.

Joanne Schivley
JoanneJoanne has come to the Council before with her fiscal prudence and her responsible attitude for the overall economic health of the City. It will be in Vallejoan’s best interest to bring the financial acumen that Joanne possesses back to the Council that is still trying to balance its books after bankruptcy.
