~Keynote “California’s Voice” Rally~

Irvine, CA — On Tuesday October 23, President Bill Clinton will attend a “California’s Voice” rally at UC Irvine to endorse Democratic congressional candidates in Southern California. Clinton will rally for congressional candidates Julia Brownley (CA-26/Ventura), Alan Lowenthal (CA-47/South Bay), Scott Peters (CA-52/San Diego), Raul Ruiz (CA-36/Palm Springs) and Mark Takano (CA-41/Riverside).

WHERE:     UC Irvine Campus
Bren Center (West Peltason Dr and Mesa)
Irvine, CA 92697

WHEN:       Tuesday, October 23, 2012; 5:00 pm

I’ll be there on behalf of OJB, possibly wearing a Jay Chen button the size of a satellite dish (seriously, folks, would it really hurt to acknowledge him?).  I will liveblog from the event if possible and report on it afterwards either way.

(Note to Republicans: yes, it really is nice to have an ex-President out here that people are really excited to see.  Too bad about your guys.  This will give a wonderful boost to Sen. Lowenthal’s campaign — and our other neighbors such as Takano.)


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
