Progressives Consider 2012 and Beyond: A “Citywide Gathering” on Thursday, December 15th Called (John) “Avalos for All of Us”

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

From the Harvey Milk Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club comes news of meeting that I’m calling Avalos for All of Us.

Check it:

“A Citywide Gathering - Former Avalos Campaign - Thursday, Dec. 15th - 6:30-9pm at 522 Valencia St.

Following the incredible Avalos campaign momentum, what’s next for the progressive movement in 2012 & beyond? What can we learn about the state of our movement from the 2011 Mayors race? What should be common priorities for progressives in 2012? Where can we build unity & be most powerful?

Let us know you are coming. And let us know if you cant come, but want to stay in touch and learn about next steps – at AVALOSFORALLOFUS@GMAIL.COMThis is a broad appeal without any particular formal organizational form, so it is not a ‘decision-making’ meeting but we hope it generates the ideas – both political and organizational — that will continue to build our strength in the city. 522 Valencia is upstairs from the new 518 Valencia: The Eric Quezada Center for Culture & Politics. Check it out at http://518valencia.org/

OK then.

Ah memories: Avalos for Mayor 2011 HQ on the day that the RUN ED RUN kids came by for a visit:

Huge Harvey Milk Candidate Meeting this Saturday, Bay Guardian Issues Endorsements

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

The powerful San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee is, once again, having elections come November. You’ll be confronted, once again, with a ballot that’s filled with a bunch of names, most of which you’ve never heard of, and the obligation to check off your dozen favorites.

If you want, you can head over to the intersection of Market and Octavia this Saturday, April 3, 2010 and then head into the the LGBT Center‘s Ceremonial Room from Noon to 5:00 PM. Then you’ll be able to see and hear some of the candidates for DCCC in 2010 address members of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.

They’ll all be answering a few questions from the crowd. (I don’t know if you need to be a member of the club to drop by, but you should be able to join the club, of course, if you want.)

The 12th District (Assemblywoman Fiona Ma country) reps the west side and 13th District (Assemblymember Tom Ammiano country) reps the east side of town, mas o menos. Find your district and see if any of these folks will be one of your twelve favorites:

And, oh yes, Alex Volberding would like everyone to know that he too is running for the DCCC in the 12th. But the two lists above aren’t exhaustive, they just show who plans on showing up at the next Milk Club PAC meeting. (The entire exhausting list of candidates for S.F. has 51(!) names this go-around.)

This was the scene inside the Victoria Theatre (rentals available) at last night’s debate hosted by lovely Ivy League lawyer “Sweet” Melissa Griffin, the San Francisco Examiner’s City Hall Examiner.

 200-something folks were in da house.

You can’t hide from the Big Board! All the candidates’ opinions on key propositions were posted in high relief for tout le monde to see:

What’s that – you want to hear what everybody has to say? You want to meet the candidates? Here you go.

Oh, you only want to hear from the front runners? Here you go.

Enjoy.
