TexBlog PAC Austin Fundraiser - TONIGHT, Sept 24.

Filed under: — site admin @ 10:00 am

Another worthy event. This is a new organization, but the folks at the center know what they are doing in terms of organizing both online and off. Blogs and netroots action can make a difference in the close races, perhaps the difference that swings the Texas House back to the people, not the corrupt pay-to-play Republicans. If you can show support for this effort, we will see results soon!

Here is their release:

Democratic State Representatives
Jim Dunnam, Pete P. Gallego, Garnet Colem, Trey Martinez Fischer, Lon Burnam, Eddie Rodriguez, Mark Strama, Valinda Bolton

Invite You to Attend the
TexBlog PAC Inaugural Fundraiser
TONIGHT, September 24th, 2007
6:00 to 8:00 pm

At the home of
Kurt and Amy Clark Meachum
5103 Cedro Trail, Austin, Texas, 78731

For additional information, or to sponsor the event, call Christine Simmons at 512-292-3000. Contributions and sponsorships can be completed online :

Just passing along the news that the funny kids at Latino Comedy Project are bringing back their highly acclaimed “AlienNation” for a few days in early October at Austin’s Dougherty Arts Center.

Meetup: Clean Elections, Travis County Democratic Chair candidates

Filed under: — site admin @ 12:24 pm

On the agenda:

True Courage Action Network’s Clean Elections Projects
Travis County Democratic Chair candidates.
The Cesar E. Chavez Statue Unveiling Ceremony (Oct. 9th).
Tuesday, Sept. 18, 7pm at Kerbey Lane Cafe, 2606 Guadalupe St.

True Courage Action Network’s Field Director Stewart Snider will present the TCAN Clean Elections project, a statewide initiative to educate voters and candidates about the role of public financing of elections. Its an idea whose time has come in Texas, but it won’t be easy, or quick. This should be an informative and engaging discussion. Background info: http://www.truecourageaction.net/tcans-clean-elections-project

The announced TCDP Chair candidates have been invited for a friendly getting to know you and your vision discussion. All three TCDP candidiates we know about, Fidel Acevedo, Andy Brown and Rosie Mendoza will be there. The TCDP is an important piece if the Democratic puzzle here in Austin, so this role can really shape the overall efficiency and effectiveness of both grassroots and top-down action. This is a great chance to ask the potential Chairs about their priorities, and what they plan to do — and not do — if they get elected.

And, don’t forget The Cesar E. Chavez Statue Unveiling Ceremony.
The Student Body, President William Powers Jr. and The University of Texas at Austin Community cordially invite you and all the students on your campus to THE UNVEILING OF THE CÉSAR E. CHÁVEZ SCULPTURE on the Main Mall, October 9, 2007 at 11 A.M.

Visit http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/cesarchavez/rsvp.php to RSVP today, or call the UT Austin Office of the Dean of Students at (512) 471-5017 or e-mail at: wbrune@mail.utexas.edu.!
As always, hope to see you, with a friend,
