Jerry Brown Kicks Off “Let’s Get California Working Again” Tour in Oakland This Morning – 12 More Stops All Over CA

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Attorney General Jerry Brown was looking good at 7:30 this morning in Oakland – he was on hand with a crowd of a couple hundred to kick off his statewide “Let’s Get California Working Again” Tour. He’ll be on it all the way to election day.

“ We’ve got to work between now and Tuesday.  I’m going to go all over California and just speak the truth.  Tell it like it is – straight talk and optimism.  Because we’re Californians and we can do it.”

Here’s Carla Marinucci’s report.

JB looks towards The Future, or the huge building across the street that he had built in Jack London Square – your pick:

As Jerry’s lean staff worked the press…

…Jerry greeted Congresswoman Maxine Waters:

His short talk covered lots of topics, including “elegant density,” the vitality of urbanity, basically:

Then Jerry left in a Pontiac – he was off to the Central Valley and points south, complete sked below.

“Team – I wanted to give you a quick update from the road.  Jerry just kicked off the “Let’s Get California Working Again” tour in Oakland this morning.  Great crowd, great event.

As Jerry said, “We’ve got to work between now and Tuesday.  I’m going to go all over California and just speak the truth.  Tell it like it is – straight talk and optimism.  Because we’re Californians and we can do it.”

We are going to make 12 more stops.  Please join us along the way and help us get out the vote.

We are in the final stretch.  What you do these next 3 days really matters.  We need you to help us get out the vote – knock on doors, call your friends – we will win this campaign but it’s up to you.

Keep up the great work and hope to see you on the tour.

Thanks,

Steve

Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day a Huge Success in Haight Ashbury, Despite Sit/Lie Violations

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

These little gutterpunks think they can just sit down on the sidewalk at the intersection of Haight and Ashbury and eat ice cream all day. Can you imagine?

Anyway, Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2010 is a huge success today, with the line running the length of four Victorian houses.

The line at Macy’s Union Square is much shorter, as per usual on FCD. Choose or lose.

Thanks Ben, thanks, Jerry!

Or just go for the cone, your choice.

Be aware that the B&J outlet at Haight and Ashbury can get a little crunchy and also quite a bit busy after school lets out. And without the (mostly harmless) sit/lie law on the books yet, look out for this kind of Nevius Nightmare:

Look at them there, they were just sitting / lying on the sidewalks back on Free Cone Day ’08. If I owned a house in the outer East Bay, well, my sensibilities would have been offended and my blood would have been boiling.

Anyway, observe proper Free Cone Day etiquette and…

See you there!
