If you live in AD 21, 22, 23, or 24 (this covers more or less the southeast half of San Mateo county and the northwest half of Santa Clara county), and you have anything to say to the Democratic Party about what you think it ought to be standing for, the Region 5 meeting of delegates is this coming Saturday, at 9am in Los Altos. This will be the main venue for public input into the platform process. The regional director has explicitly opened up invitation to the public. If you're interested in attending, please visit this page for the location, and to RSVP to the regional director. (RSVPs aren't absolutely necessary, but they're appreciated; that way we know how much coffee and bagels we need for people. :-)
I will be presenting a resolution / possible plank concerning reform of Prop 13.
