Next Tuesday, September 15th is going to be a busy day for me, and I hope it will be for you too. The morning will start off with what should be a heated hearing at Public Works and the evening will end with a casual mixer with young, politically involved East Bay residents.
9:30 am – Public Works Committee Hearing on Oakland Airport Connector
City Hall, 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Hearing Room 1
You’re probably getting sick of me writing about the OAC by now, but think of it this way – if we can kill this project via the Oakland City Council, I’ll never have to write about it again! So please attend and speak out against this project on Tuesday. I understand that many people can’t make it, due to work so put the evening of Tuesday, October 6th on your calendar right now because that’s when it’s slated to go to the full council and we’ll need a huge showing that evening. If you’d like more info about the OAC, visit OaklandAirportConnector.com.
6:00-9:00pm – EBYD’s September Mixer & Happy Hour
Somar Bar & Lounge, 1727 Telegraph Ave., Oakland
After an intense morning hearing and presumably work afterwards, you’ll need a stiff drink so join the East Bay Young Democrats at our mixer at Somar. Here’s a perfect chance to renew your membership, see old friends, or join and make some new ones. This event will also serve as the last call for nominations to serve on next year’s Executive Committee and will be the last opportunity to become a member if you’d like to be eligible to vote in our October officer elections. New & renewing members will receive a free glass of beer or wine so if you’ve ever considered joining, now is the time. For more info and to RSVP, see the Facebook event.
